Over the past two months I have been back in Australia, back into training in preparation for 2014 and into the office to get some of my work experience completed for my University degree. I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to complete six weeks full time work as a trainee Town Planner at King and Campbell in Port Macquarie, something I really enjoyed and made me very happy with my career choice for post cycling years :)
