My parents came to visit me in Canberra. We went up to the snowy mountains for the weekend (no snow around at the moment though of course!). It was really pretty up there, and we did the big walk up the highest mountain in Australia - Mt Kosciusko. It was quite easy really. We caught the chairlift up, then did the 5hours return walk on a nice path. We saw a snake on the way too! And Polish people at the top, randomly dressed in polish national dress.. turns out the guy who first climbed the mountain was Polish and it was his birthday.
Anyway, check out some photos here: http://picasaweb.google.com/jo.savill there are also photos from Sydney and christmas.
Hoep you are doing well.
