Thredbo 2021, Days 7-8: Winding down

And suddenly, we arrived at our last full day, and to be honest we weren’t hugely inspired about how to spend it. This is unusual for me as I love planning our walks and activities in Thredbo, but I think I’m just darned planned out for the moment. I will get my mo-jo back soon, … Read more Thredbo 2021, Days 7-8: Winding down

However, this February we did some things we’d … Read more Melbourne Trip 2020 (Feb): There and back
