... on the roads. Maeve and I took turns driving and I got the last leg just as it got dark... I was absolutely exhausted by the time we made it (shouldn't have hit the gym at 8 am) we got some pizza for dinner and went to our 5 star hotel room. Complete with 2 rooms and a jacuzzi again!

    ... past some amazing scenery that we were planning on taking pictures of on the way back, that was until it got dark on the way home and ruined that plan anyway! Small rivers running through gorges, amazingly sharply hillsides with exposed rocks that look like they have just been pushed up through the grass!
