After a long journey up to Mildura, I finally made it to Mildura to meet our long lost relatives!
Mildura is a lovely town on the Murray River about 6 hours drive from Melbourne. The weather there was lovely and warm which was a nice break from cold old Melbourne - it was 28 degrees there - and that was their winter!
It was a bit of a nerve wracking experience meeting the Mildura Marshalls, but I had nothing to be nervous about as everyone was lovely and made me feel right at home and the food was excellent and so much of it too - my idea of heaven!
It was great to finally meet everyone and put names to faces and really get the chance to get to know everyone a bit better, but hopefully I'll get another chance to drop in and visit before I leave oz, as it would be great to see everyone again.
