My third visitor
As the year rushes toward its end, my darling mum visited me in the last week of July. It was the first time I was a proper 'host' as even when they visited me in Lund, my family stayed in a hotel on the other side of town.
She occupied herself with exploring Canberra - the 'Parliamentary Triangle' (day 1), Civic (day 2) and Dickson/Civic (day 3) - while I was at work. On the weekend, we went to the National Arboreteum and Fyshwick Markets.
The fact that we are close is what allows me to live away from home. I love the following line in particular because I identify with it completely:
It’s our closeness that made me a person who is independent and curious, to take opportunities to veer a little bit off the course of what’s expected.I'd like to work overseas (one day) but until then, here suits me just fine :)
