Happy New Year 2012

It’s been quite a while since my last posting and I do apologise for the delay. It’s just that we were on holidays down under and whle there most amount of time was spent sight-seeing. Well, thats the idea of travelling I suppose :)

We did have a lovely time in both Melbourne and Sydney,the two cities that we visited this time round. Indeed, most of the Aussies we came in contact with were extremely friendly an helpful! We made various trips to the outskirts and nearby towns/cities and the scenery was breathtaking!

My four year old had an amazing time trying to cuddle kangaroos and koalas while my fourteen year old niece enjoyed her fair share of hot chocolates and potato wedges with the quintessential sweet chilli-lime sour cream.

We all stuffed ourselves silly with traditional scones, heavily piled with devonshire cream and thick lashings of jam. Yummzz. Although I must admit we did tire of them by the end of our trip.

All in all, we had a fun trip, visiting wineries and strawberry plantations, going on cruises and admiring the coastline, looking at penguins as they returned home at Phillips Island and ofcourse, shopping!
