I realised recently that I’ve blathered on about Sydney a fair bit but never written about what it is I like to do there. So I’m going to address that today. Without further ado, here are the top 10 activities in Sydney that I’d recommend to a friend. Sidenote: I apologise that a lot of these photos look like they were taken on a potato. That’s because they were. A lot of these photos were taken on my early trip(s) to Sydney, back when we all did touristy activities together and I had an awful camera. Nowadays when I visit I just… View Post

It’s finally here! This year has been particularly full, travel-wise, but the trip we’re about to take is the pinnacle of the lot. Tomorrow, we leave for our grand US trip and I absolutely cannot wait. These last few months have been really hectic at work and I’m so ready for a break. We’re away for two whole weeks, and I can’t remember the last time S and I went on a trip that long, just the two of us. Our itinerary is pretty packed, and we’re going to a lot of places. Here’s what it looks like. 2 1/2 days… View Post

If we went for a coffee, I’d first and foremost apologise for being completely MIA recently. This week’s been a bit mad so I’ve not had time to write any blog posts at all, and I’ve not even managed to reply to all your comments! I’m really very sorry about that, let me tell you what’s been going on… Not only are things still mad at work (only 2 weeks left on my current project! I’m so nearly there!) but all my Australian family are over and I’ve been spending all the time that I can with them. We’ve all been congregating as… View Post

After bringing you my top 6 attractions, I’m here to bring you another 6 sights in New York City that I loved. I loved all these activities too, and I’d recommend them to anyone visiting NYC. The High Line If you’re feeling the need for some greenery inamongst the skyscrapers, make a beeline for the High Line. It’s got plenty of trees, as well as some interesting sculptures and when we were there, we found some food stalls set up in an underpass. You can catch a glimpse of some iconic sights from the walkway: I just love how the foliage contrasts… View Post

I thought I’d just stop by for a quick Incognito lingual braces update because… the gap has gone! It’s no more! Totally closed! Alright, when I last left you I had just had my first tightening and I thought I could see the gap shrinking slightly. Thereafter, things were pretty uneventful. I had grown fairly used to talking with the braces and the first tightening only required a small adjustment to that. I liked the new elastic bands on my upper teeth, which were sort of in an infinity sign formation, because I felt like the brackets rubbed on my tongue less when… View Post
