Happy Lunar New Year!
There were installations all around the city, particularly the harbour in celebration of the lunar new year. Including this swirl of flying pigs right beside the cruise sh...
Gingerbread cookies. It's Christmas so it's time to get out the cookie cutters and bake some scrumptious cookies. These were tasty, gingery (but not too gingery) and sweet. Hard to resist!
Delicious brekky at Seven Seeds before a day at Melbourne University for a developer conference. This was nearby (albeit a bit hidden amongst the construction nearby). Granola and fruit, super heal...
Lovely flowers from my colleagues on the last day of work.

Nothing like a bonfire for roasting marshmallows

Even more bikes!
Location: Oxford Station, Oxford, England
Could barely believe it when I saw this outside Oxford Station, so many bikes! To be honest it reminded me of Asia where bikes are a more common form of transport. I knew Oxford was a very bike fri...
Location: Keswick, Lake District, England
This was a beautiful little town next to a lake and surrounded by fields. There were sheep roaming these fields and we could get quite close to them. These three obligingly stopped to pose for my p...
Location: Lake District, England
I think this was Bassenthwaite Lake, which is the largest body of water in the lake district (and the only one actually called 'lake', all the others are called 'water'). Being a very green and wat...
Like the gondolas, one person pokes a stick along the river bed to push a boat along. Students and tourists were punting along the river which winds through Oxford, which looked quite fun. I had be...
On the march
Location: London, England
The troops were out both for the changing of the guards and later on, practicing for the trooping of the colour. It was amazing seeing them up close practicing their formations and being a warm sum...
Location: The Globe Theatre, London, England
Twelfth Night was showing. I'd never read/seen this play so it was a new experience. Actually I probably hadn't seen a stage play since school either. To be honest I pretty much hated Shakespeare i...
Location: Near Victoria Station, London, England
Cannot for the life of me remember what the restaurant was called but I was hankering for a sandwich and this is what came out! Perfect! The chips were crispy and the fried chicken burger was delis...
Vegetarian food that's filling
Location: Graze on Grassmarket, Edinburgh
A tiny little place that packs a punch. Discovered this beauty just wandering around on my first afternoon in Edinburgh. I was too late but came back for lunch the next day. It's vegetarian (vegan ...
Picture perfect sunset
Location: Killarney, Ireland
The prefect end to an otherwise cold, wet and windy day. This was the day we drove around the Ring of Kerry, taking in the south-west corner of Ireland. Although the weather was frankly terrible, I...
Searching for the Loch Ness Monster
Location: Fort Augustus Locks, Scotland
A view of the locks (part of the Caledonian Canal) which is a passage in Loch Ness that allow ships to travel between the east and west. It was interesting watching the ships pass through this and ...
Location: Random places in Sydney
These bikes randomly started appearing at Prince Alfred Park in the city one day and it turns out they were from two separate bike hire startups. The bikes can be hired through an app which tracks ...
It wouldn't be a trip to the Scottish highlands without spotting a highland coo (cow). We were lucky enough to drive past a small herd of them in a paddock and swung back around to stop by and say ...
