Thanks to all my Christmas contributors, you made this festive season extra special!

I love a summer Sunday arvo with a coupla bevvies! Can you get more Aussie than that?

This week’s equation:
Great weather = good light = snow dome photography
I caught up this week. Three shelves to go and the bulk of photography documentation is complete!
This week’s food highlight:
All you can eat mussels at Bungalow 8 on Tuesdays for $26.50!
Nothing like a bit of seafood by the water while the sun sets.

It was nice to be back and settling into the blogging routine without having to consider what time it was in Sydney. One afternoon with coffee in hand, I found myself just gazing over the collection from all over the world and it wasn’t until the cat began to whine for some attention that I realised how long I’d been sitting there.
Time flies when you start to remember travel stories – people met (like the man whose occupation was to teach dancing on cruises), the funny experiences (like getting to an airport a day early in South Africa) and the not so funny ones (like a violent little episode at a tent eatery in Seoul… more on that next time). Then my journey stopped short at this one: there was not a single dome to be found at the 3 shops within the British Museum in London. How odd is that?

I missed a couple of these while I was away, so I’ve rolled it all into one whopper!

One week left and I pack my bags bound for the northern end of the world. And although I am looking forward to this trip with excitement, there has been one thing heavily weighing on my mind: am I going to finally fail this daily blogging after 6 months of success??
So today, with much determination I got down to the details. With itineraries, time zones and diagrams strewn around, I forged my game plan. I am ready. Nervous, but ready.

There’s always a million little things to do before you go on holidays and the work was still pouring in, so it wasn’t a leisurely stroll to the finish line as I had hoped. But I’m here, it’s Sunday and even this dreary weather can’t dampen my spirit!
As a final farewell, Chai just couldn’t help himself. Five sugars for the road!

This week’s word: taxonomy
This week’s flavour: miso paste
This week’s lesson: stick to spirits and no wine and you’ll be fine
This week’s quote: “you know you’re old when at least one part of your body is hurting all the time” – my favourite curmudgeonly Dr Love.

I went without internet for two nights this week and I was so shocked at how much I rely on it. There’s always a notebook permanently stationed on our coffee table, whenever I don’t know something, it’s straight to Wiki or Google and simply finding the whereabouts of this or the opening hours of that is just a quick search away. The amount of time I spend on the internet is probably equivalent to someone else’s tv time. So I was surprised by the withdrawal symptoms. I’m assuming everyone is like this though, right?
