Australia – 1 year ago today

Turning back time to this time last year.... Have to say that sitting in an office in the middle of London doesn't quite compare to driving on a boat in Noosa Heads, Queensland. I will let you guys decide which you think is better. 🙂 Have a good weekend!!

London – Toast Rack, Wandsworth

Toast Rack is one of my favourite breakfast place in London, it is an artisan bakery, coffee shop and cafĂ© right next to Wandsworth Common.  It is slightly off the main strip of coffee shops and retailers, which makes it an even better find.

Ever since that night, people go out on …

I love its thin brick buildings, surrounded by often rainy skyline, an interesting history, and the people seem to have a very easy going …
