14-24 DECEMBER 2009, CANBERRA

After 10 hours on the plane to Bangkok, a 1 hour stop-over, another 8 hours on the plane to Sydney, a quick catch-up with mamma and papa
and then 30 min on the plane to Canberra, we have arrived - the little one is the most jetlagged

Afternoon in the Manuka pool
 
Oskar refused to wear his swimming gear and initially didn't want to get in the water (he's a bit water-scared), but the heat got to him and he hopped in with his shorts and t-shirt on.

Ice coffees here never disappoint.
