Arriving homeNovember 22, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 19 °C
After an amazing 6 months away we arrive back to Sydney airport on a cold and windy day. There have been many amazing moments, lots of beautiful people and stunning, breath taking and humbling places and experiences which have enriched our lives and our little family.
Lila has learnt some phrases in different languages like 'chu arai ka' (what is your name in Thai), 'makan di sini' (eat here in Bahasa), 'sidikit rusak' (little broken in Bahasa) and our favourite 'chello' (let's go in Hindi), which have stuck to the end of the trip.
Here is a beginning and end of trip photo of Lila in her 'travelling outfit'. One of the best things about coming back is seeing family, including Lila's 2 little cousins who were only little babies when we left. After little sleep on the flight home, Lila falls asleep quickly in the car in the way home (after excitingly reuniting with an outfit she got in India and we had sent home).
