Watch out London, I’m on my way!16

Posted on November 13, 2008 by ChristieTravel Stories

I found out a few days ago that I have to attend some urgent business meetings in London, so I’m flying out tomorrow night.

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting as frequently as usual and that’s because I’ve been totally snowed under with work. But don’t worry, I’m hoping the 23 hour flight (eek!) will allow me to do a whole lot of writing – I’ve got so many posts backed up it’s unbelievable.

The other great news is that the lovely Niahm from Eat Like A Girl is organising a blogging event at a Brazilian wine tasting evening and I’ll be in town for it! How exciting is that?

I’m really looking forward to catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, checking out fresh produce markets and chowing down at my favourite local eateries. In between that I’ll be frantically attending meetings and working super hard as the corporate frequent flyer that is Christie :)

Well I better finish packing, but before I go, any requests or suggestions? I can be your global eyes, ears and taste buds – just say the word!

Happy eating, Christie
