I have to say leaving Denver and heading to the middle of the Aussie summer was an exciting prospect to say the least. I look at my bag beside me now to see the handful of cold weather items that I threw in 'just in case'. A neck gater, leg warmers, warm gloves. Chances are these things were going to stay put, but it's funny how you get used to the enviroment around you that it almost seems never ending. Landing in Melbourne things couldn't have been more the polar opposite. I left Denver on a 3C day and landed in Melbourne on a 35F day.
