Long Final and goodbye!

Yesterday was the final of the long distance course. Swiss stars Simone and Daniel were unbeatable. Our own stars Hanny and Kathryn did great in the unique "karst" terrain - especially at the end when it was rough, tough and steep.

Afterwards, we had the banquet and were pretty happy with the aussie songs that made it - Men at Work and Kylie were some of the hits played.

Today we all separated and said our goodbyes...

Kathryn (who actually left straight after finishing her course!) is off to Italy to compete in the World Mountain Running Champs

Jasmine left with the Americans at 3.30am to catch her early morning flight to Melbourne (via Germany and Asia of course!)

Grace left this afternoon to fly to her (temporary) home in Leeds ;-)

Rob and Anna are flying home to Melbourne (after 2.5 years in London!!)

Victoria is flying to her current base in London and is super pleased with her increased knowledge of orienteering :-)

Hanny is off to Finland to soak up the sun for a week or so

Shannon is going home to Canberra

Wendy and Lance are spending 3 days in Budapest then on to further european adventures - lucky!!

Thanks for reading our blog and cheering us on from home, we have had a great time over here in Miskolc, Hungary!!!!!
