... our upcoming trip! By the time we finished everything at gone 11 we donned torches and went on the campsite’s bush walk in the dark, taking us through the farmer’s fields and eventually up into the bush following a small stream. Somehow we didn’t get lost and we finally found ourselves looking at absolutely loads of glow worms lining the muddy banks of the stream! They look just like stars in the night ...

Then we had to turn around and walk back over it again - this time I was much braver and left about a boat length between us and stopped to pose for a photo ... it's quite hard to smile and look carefree and confident while telling your husband to hurry up and take the ****** photo! Anyway, it's now done and dusted and I really feel like I have conquered a long held phobia. Yay for me.
