The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

4 happy years!

Four years ago today, Rob and I got married in our home city of Perth, Australia. And it occured to me recently that for all four anniversaries, we were in different cities/towns/countries other than Perth. Our first was spent in Kalbarri (north of Perth) for a short getaway, the second was in Kanazawa shortly after we'd moved to Ishikawa prefecture in Japan, and last year we celebrated our third anniversary in New York where we'd stayed for two months. Every year, incidentally around August, had been exciting periods for us with new ventures ahead, and this year is no exception - we're living in the big capital of Tokyo and expecting our first baby due in seven short weeks time!!

Like all relationships and marriages, there are ups and downs - but thankfully there are more ups for us than downs, and it is our nature to hold on to the memories of good times. By the way, my memories with Rob dates back more than 11 years ago when we first met on the school bus (different high schools), but he became more of a constant presence in my life about 7 years ago. Has it truly been that long ago?
