At the start of April, Gideon and I had our first, and hopefully not last, guests. Geordie, Sophie and Monsier et Madame Vogt decided to take a risk on the wet season ending in time and came up to Darwin to take advantage of the school holidays and the semi-free accomodation. It was wonderful to finally have someone come up and see where we live, and to have an excuse to do some of the touristy things ourselves!
I was really impressed with their efforts. In one week they managed to fit in campervanning and touring in Katherine, Kakadu (hours and hours of driving) and Litchfield Park (swimming in waterfalls), dinners at some of Darwin's icons - Stokes Hill Wharf, Cullen Bay and Hog's Breath Cafe (juicy steaks and curly fries), a walk in the botanical gardens, visits to the Art & Museum Gallery (experienced the Cyclone simulation), spending money at the mango winery and throwing bread at fish feeding (a highlight for me too)!
Thanks Geord & Soph for organising the trip, it was lovely to see you and your family and get to do some sightseeing! :)
Here are a few photos. Although, I'm pretty sure that Sophie & Geordie's will be better!
