Frankly it was a pleasure!


Yesterday we said goodbye to Frank Burns who had stayed with us for the night.  As I mentioned in a previous post, Frank has cycled from the north of New Zealand to the southerly tip of New Zealand and is following that with a journey from Sydney to Melbourne.  All of this has been done to raise money for the children in Syria Appeal.

Children in Syria appealThe journey has been completed on his trusty steel framed Raleigh bicycle, which he told us would be going into retirement when he returns to the UK.

Frank's bikeWhen Frank arrived in Metung we took him down to the village to show him the attraction of living in this part of the world and while we were at the water’s edge we thought it would be opportune to pop into the local to have a pint.

The Metung HotelWe enjoyed a lovely warm afternoon and then returned home for our evening meal.


It was a delight to have Frank’s company for the night and to hear of the wonderful adventure he has had in this part of the world.

  1. He must be racking up an amazing load of experiences, is he intending to write a book on his return? Very nice for you to connect with him like that and give him your support.

      I don’t think he intends to write a book but he would certainly have plenty of content if he did.
