A day of Decadence

It started this morning with a gorgeous coffee full of cream – I mean, what were we supposed to do while waiting for the bead shop to open? Rich, hot coffee with sugar and cream.
After the bead trip we heady to Newtown where we wandered window shopping before hitting Sushi train for lunch. I like my sushi, but wow! What a selection and how cool is that concept?

Dessert was Gelato Blue directly next door where the choices were mind boggling.
All items are made on the premises, with real flavour. Like really full on flavour. The baked Apple pie, it was like I had eaten a slice, pastry and all. Pavlova, fruit, after dinner mint, banana pancake… I tried them all before deciding on cappuccino, Argentinian Caramel and American peanut butter brownie.

Then came the beauty treatment and stopping for a well earned coffee break. The best Vienna I’ve had yet.

The day didn’t finish there. For my last night with my brother (and in Australia) we went out for dinner at the local rowing club. Just beautiful. Even with winds and overcast weather the view is still pretty good.

I’m now waiting for washing and finishing the re packing of my bags ready for tomorrow.
The next post will be coming from the US, most likely Arizona. I’m getting super excited now, and it can’t come quick enough. There will be plenty of pictures to share with you, so I hope you hang around a little bit longer.

And if my boss is reading, I have posted two postcards already.

Here’s a look at what we did today.

Checking out the US and Canada..

is it ironic that my first trip outside of Aus is with Virgin..?

The start of a whirlwind trip – I still can’t believe it!

Having a great week!

Travel Tuesday, only just.

It’s half past ten, I’ve been home for half an hour from the meeting that is usually 2 hrs only (it was super productive!!!), I’ve been busy all week and weekend, and nearly toddled off to bed without getting these pictures up and published.
Is been a while since we’ve received any, if you haven’t, or even if you have, please send more!! We Kelly love seeing them in the post.
On our way to the airport this morning hubby and I stopped in and got Kelly’s new batch of postcards on the wall. Which is interesting as most of these are from her herself, that she posted from her long weekend away. And it gives me a chance to snow some of you more of our beautiful state of Tasmania.
I may be quiet for a few days as I have my market meeting this week, at least one, a market to attend, a craft room to clean after the storm that went through, and all the usual family requirements. I do still read your blogs, I am just a few days, a week late, but I will get a round to it (and doing lots of ‘liking’ to share my love :-D)

Travel Tuesday – lots of new arrivals.

It’s been awhile since I have posted a postcard post. Too many posts there? Ah well.
Some have come in from friends of Kelly, and two from friends of me. Or, more to point, readers of mine.

A beautiful card sent from Slovakia. I may just be having a severe blonde moment, but I haven’t idea whose tag line it is. If it yours, please let me know, and I will correct this.

And lucky last. A card from the Professor. An absolutely gorgeous building, with a little humour added in, on the back.

Travel Tuesday – Postcard update

After a bad start to this morning which resulted in me not grabbing my camera I had to use the phone, which doesn’t give me the same visual range. The post cards which arrived care of friends from past holidays, or given to them from friends.

And the wall as it stands now. So many people have contributed and it’s looking fantastic.

We want more! It doesn’t where you are, if you can spare a couple of dollars, and write a small note, Kelly would love it.
