Canberra sojourn #12 – The CannedBra experience!

Our Canberra sojourn is now at its end and we’re coming back to Perth!

Whilst the work has sometimes been more stressful than either of us would have liked, during the times where we could forget about work and focus on experiencing Canberra and the surrounding region we have loved every second of it.  In fact, if I had to relocate from Perth for some reason, Canberra would be at the top of my locations to be considered. During our time here, we’ve been very fortunate to have had some truly fantastic experiences, but I’ll let the following pictures tell the story.
