The Lab, the Australian Way
January 13, 2014
This year our Christmas celebrations took a
turn for the adventurous. Following up from a year of
building our cultural understanding of what Australianness truly means (and if
you haven’t seen it, check out our semiotic square, we’re proud to say we think
it rocks) our Christmas party followed in the footsteps. We headed to the High Country, to the
land of The Man from Snowy River. An iconic poem, an iconic film, and one
amazing horseback jump (tempted as we were, no-one attempted!)
Two days, 12 people, 12 horses and a whole
lot of torrential rain. There were poetry recitals, guitar solos, one fall off the
back of a horse, and the requisite log fire. We’ll say less about the kitchen
disco and pantry party!
Whilst the rain made it more akin to a wet weekend in Yorkshire than the High Country in Summer, the views, the country and the ride was no less spectacular. We feel truly blessed to be from such a beautiful country.
But as pictures paint the story of a thousand words, here is our journey (along with some excellent wet weather gear!)
