After two months in the Americas, we travelled to Europe to visit friends and family and for me, to be challenged yet again by a couple of foreign languages. Three countries and three very different experiences.
It must be said in many posts, books and tributes. All Kiwis and Aussies must make the pilgrimage to Gallipoli for ANZAC Day at least once in their lifetimes. It makes us all sincerely appreciate the sacrifice on the men, the lunacy of war and the making of our nations and who we are. Our 2012 three month trip ended with this sobering experience.
