Wished it Could Have Been LongerVictoria, BC (Member # 16482)
Mount Gambier, Southern Australia, secret gem
My husband and I stayed with a lovely family in Australia for only one night. We both wished it could have been longer. Not only were we very warmly welcomed, but we also obtained valuable travel advice on our route and what was worth stopping for or missing. We arranged in advance to arrive with food to cook the host family dinner. We had more time to visit than would have eating out, and to enjoy their unusual home in a 150 year old converted farm building. We spend an evening swapping opinions on books, pointing out spots we had been on the atlas and lively general discussion.
This experience was so much more meaningful than arriving in a sterile hotel room and turning on local news. We will certainly try for more such arrangements.
