The Alice part 6

As I mentioned previously, the night after my return from The Rock Tour, I was in great need of a good night sleep...and that is what I got. Sadly, this was to the detriment of myth plans to watch the sunrise from ANZAC Hill.



Nevertheless, I walked to the memorial lookout after having a sensational eggs benedict at Red Dog cafe in Todd Mall. I walked the road up, and the bush path back down, then proceeded back to the mall to visit the souvenir shop where I purchased some -wait for it- some souvenirs. As fridge magnets are the new teaspoons, I grabbed a few of those, some key rings and a tea towel for mum.

On my way back to the hotel to pack my bags and head to the airport for my flight back, I received a text message from QANTAS informing me that my flight had been cancelled. Bad news, right? Not so bad was them arranging for me to be a later flight, and a direct flight. This meant that I left later and arrived home earlier.


My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 entertained me on the home flight and 2 sloppy joes sustained me until we landed and I exited into the arms of my fiance (not immediately, but you know what I  mean).

The next day, it was business as usual and I returned to work the following Monday. Every day since I have reflected on what a great holiday it was. If you got to Alice Springs, and I highly recommend you do, make sure you do the Rock Tour-if you think you can handle it.

  1. One day perhaps. We have relatives, but no plane fare - as yet :)
