Days later, when we were returning along the coast, we decided to stop at a town called Noosa Heads. While we were at a picnic area, guess who we bump into? That's right, Marianne and Graeme. This time we are in their hometown and after a few words, they invited us to dinner the following day. We exchanged information, saying that we might take them up on their offer if our plans change. HereOur original plan had been to . . .
Marianne and Graeme graciously opened up their home to us and we had a wonderful visit. Marianne prepared a fantastic meal, topped off with a delicious Australian dessert called pavlova and great conversation. The next thing I know it is almost 11:00pm and the kids are fast asleep on the sofa. They offer us the spare bedroom and I get the kids organized and soon we are fast asleep in a cozy bed. We wake up well rested, refreshed and truly grateful to Marianne and Graeme's hospitality.
One of the great things about travelling is how it opens us up to meeting new people and has been a highlight of our travels.
