Barre Body

I’ve recently been updating my bucket list and movign things into my complete bucket list post too, and realised, I’ve done some things I’ve wanted, and taken photos and never mentioned it on my blog – that’s like it never happening right? One is Barre BOdy.  A great friend got me a single pass in …

No only children for me

I know some of my regular readers and friends are either only children, or parents to only child families.  This post is my thoughts and rationales, and in no way a judgement I pass on you and your circumstances.  I know that whilst at this juncture it may seem for me to be a choice, …

The lighthouse

Just like I lived in the loft when I started this blog, let’s call place 3 the lighthouse.  I’m not sure what to call place 2 – the 2 bedder?  That’ll work! So the light house, is not, in fact a light house! It is, however, VERY light.  My father suggested my last two homes …

I’m still here

Yep, I’m still alive – as my few infrequent blog readers would know, as I pop in and comment on your blog. I’ve had a few months without internet, so that’s explains the dip in posting.  And I’ve moved house. Here’s hoping to more posts soon…

A new car…

I’ve never owned a car outright, as long time readers might recall from this post. That’s all about to change! I have decided at the ripe old age of 31, that it’s time to buy my very own car.  It due to some frustrations by the limitations of work’s car – I can only drive …

Sarajevo – the place that impacted me the most

Of the four countries, and five cities we visited on our European tour, I will empathically say, Bosnia was the ‘best’.  Best is a tough thing to say when I explain why I found it the most impactful.  This is a city that, IN MY CHILDHOOD, suffered a civil war for 44 months.  People starved, …

Sarajevo, Bosnia – Day 1

We flew from Istanbul to Sarajevo Our flights was “interesting”.  There were a lot of children, and they weren’t particularly well disciplined.  I think we heard ‘Please sit down’ close to 100 times on the PA by the flight attendant.  I gather the children were not English speakers, and the flight attendants were not Turkish …

Hammam (Turkish Spa) Day

Knowing we had an early departure the following morning for our flights, I  let Rory make the most of our dark curtains to sleep in. Til about noon! The pesky air con seeks on a timer so it required putting on again if you wake hot. Anyhow, Bucharest had decidedly non black out curtains and …

Five star LivetoList in Turkey

Heads up – this is a long post, and doesn’t even begin to capture half the photos I want to share! Let’s say five star LivetoList reared her head. The bathroom in our original Istanbul hotel was tiny, which was fine. However, the toliet didn’t flush strongly. There was black mouldy from a shower or toilet …

Turkey photo and day 1

Thanks to Rory’s astute research we needed an electronic visa to enter turkey for about AUD50. I did this prior to leaving Australia and printed it at work before leaving. Sadly I didn’t add it into the ordered sheaf of print outs I had and so didn’t have it at the immigration counter. And English …
