Place in the Country

Well, I'm currently about 170 kilometres west of home at Chantal's parents' place in the tiny town of Maclagan - you can walk from end to end in about 3 minutes - posting from their computer in the small room coming off from the front veranda. We came up on Christmas night and have just been enjoying a very quiet and relaxing holiday, playing board games and darts and watching movies and all that. Sometimes it's just what you need, to get away from it all for a little while.

Today we went for a drive up to the Bunya Mountains National Park so we could enjoy a little bushwalking. Last time there, we only went on the very short 500 metre walk, so this time we thought we might try something a slight bit more challenging. It took just over 2.5 hours to complete the Bakers Creek Circuit, a little exhausting for some of us who are not as fit as we probably should be, but it was a great experience nonetheless, with lots to see, the gigantic bunya pine trees, birds, waterfalls and ponds filled with tiny tadpoles.

We will be on our way back to the complexities of the city tomorrow.

I'm so terrible at converting the metric system ... Glad you were able to go somewhere you could relax.

Hope you had a great holiday and wishing you a SUPER New Year! :)

I just remembered that Google does a great job converting different units of measurement.

Just Google: 170 km in miles,
and you get: 170 kilometers = 105.633103 miles

Wishing everyone the best for the New Year. Take care.
