Home Sweet Home: Sydney16

I’m baaaaack!

There’s nothing like flying home after a long trip and soaring over the spectacular site of a sparkling Sydney Harbour in Summer-time.

The Harbour Bridge winks, the Opera House smiles and the water shimmers so bright it brings a tear to the eye.

Please forgive my sentimentality, but 6 months away from this beautiful city is much too long. International readers, if you have not yet taken the long trip Down Under, I urge you to do it. I promise to give you a private guided tour.

Dillon and I visited a whopping 10 countries and 26 cities in our never-to-be-forgotten world tour. We took almost 5000 photos (yes, a lot of them were food-related) and only a fraction of them have appeared on this blog (don’t worry, that’s soon to be rectified).

Right now, though, I’m off to find myself some in-season mangoes, cherries and lychees. Speak to you soon.
