    Only 3!

    • Well, when I’ve REALLY missed home. They were last friday, as well as the moment when I was catching the train out to Clayponds and realised I had pretty much all of my material possessions with me, but no home or friends… and Drive by Incubus came on my iPod. Awwww. Plus when I was describing Pretty Beach to someone and I realised just how much I’d gotten used to the wide open, wild space of Australia…

    only 2600 photos in 40 days, what happened?????
    sounds like you’ve had a great time

    What is a science communication degree, anyway?!? 2600 photos means your Duo Series could have gone on for 3 years and 215 days!!

  4. I think the Duo series would have gotten old by then, but it’s a good stat! Jarrah, it’s been pretty mad so far – trying to tally up this post made me realise just how much I’ve fitted in. Now I need to do some work!
