Thanks to all who have been following my travel blog so far. It’s a great way for me to keep track of where I’ve been and of course to share this with you.
So I will be heading off again later this week and starting to post shortly thereafter. I want to make sure that I share things you are interested in as well as the things I’m interested in. So this is a request for your input on what you would like me to include in my posts. Could be where to eat, stay or experiences or anything really – up to you. I will try and respond to your feedback, noting I do want to keep the posts short and snappy – as I know you are all busy people.
I certainly got lots of ideas on books to read when I asked for them so am hoping for the same on this topic. Look forward to hearing from you.
And before I leave Melbourne here are two very different pieces of art I saw recently. On the left, a giant piece of street art I saw recently in Melbourne – and to princesses everywhere,
don’t we all feel like this sometimes(?) and on the right a sculpture of the Moir Sisters by Linda Marrinon that I saw at the MCA in Sydney which I just fell in love with.
As promised the Hockney and Bulgari sections of my epic three hour visit to the NGV and enjoying the sunshine with my mates – so nice to finally have some time to enjoy their company:)
Bulgari glitters. If it’s good enough for Elizabeth Taylor, it’s good enough for me.
Hockney and his iPad has enabled him to churn out thousands of great paintings. Maybe I should give it a try?
In both cases below it was the boys who took the selfies. I thought I should point that out in case anyone noticed the drop in photographic standards?
With Marjory and Jeremy at the tennis: With Susanna and Alistair and wine.
Can I get all this into one suitcase and will 6 (thanks for the guidance Tania) pairs of shoes keep me going over 6 weeks? The range of temperatures of places I’m visiting is -1 to plus 31 degrees – good thing I have lived in Melbourne for so long and understand the beauty of layering. And in case you were wondering the Teddy Bear is reviewing the process but is staying behind – honest!
This is my first go at setting up a blog to share my observations on life after work, my forthcoming travels and anything else that I think is worth sharing.
On my first day after 9 years at ANZ I of course had to clear out my closet – as a colleague pointed out “Type A” personality or what? The photo shows the before and after. So nice to move away from “Melbourne black” for a while. Still keep waking up at 6am though with or without an alarm clock.
