After coming back from San Andres, I had about 10 days before flying home. Most of this time was spent getting ready to come home including present shopping, preparing a CV and emailing recruiters in Melbourne.
Highlights of this 10 days included:
My cousin in Australia married a Colombian so I met his brother and parents.
A big night out at an 80s bar. Colombian music today hasn't changed a lot from what it sounded like in the 80s.
Finally playing a round of golf.
Really though, there was a lot of nothing, but was good to spend my last few days relaxing.
The flight home was a bit rough - 30 hours and a lot of delays etc later - but it was good to finally be home.
Overall it was an amazing trip, but it is quite tough work when everyday things, like speaking spanish, getting places without transport etc are challenging. I think 6 months was an ideal time to have away. I have a short amount of time in NZ before heading to Melbourne to try and find a job there. I am looking forward to that challenge and again, it will be an opportunity to explore a cool new place.
