Chiavari & Lavagna

Weekend break on the Ligurian coast. Quiet (except for the church bells), chilled (except for beach run), nothing bonkers (except for the bonkers amount of rain).

Highlights: Madrid

An unexpected week chillin’ in surely one of the word’s most relaxed capital cities. I don’t know how a week with no agenda, no committments, no expectations went so quickly…
The weather was unbelievably good, the people were brilliantly friendly, it was a perfect week to stroll, drink cafe solo, buy cheap clothes, nap and then hit the cervezas. Muy bueno.

With Kate in town for just 24 hours we went in pursuit of fun and decided to mix it in Shoreditch. We got our fun, plenty of it, and some of the best food I’ve had since being back in the UK.
The crowd was pretty funny – deeply, deeply, archeologically cool, lots of focus on primary colours, and non too interested in our main-stream giggly chat. It seems we don’t talk Hoxton…

Highlights: France

Six perfect days at Lake Annecy with my little giselle.
Doing all our favourite things but attempting them at a gentle, relaxed pace.
Breathing the amazing air, drinking (pore-ously and pot-ably) the delicious water, baking in the gorgeous sunshine and then, unfortunately getting soaked in full on mountain rainfalls.
Et après…
Two days in Paris with lovely Kate, doing, er, not a lot but loving every second.

Highlights: England

The last couple of trips home I have ended up seeing a lot of Sussex, West Sussex. And sure enough on this trip, the same. Some highlights include: a sweet hotel in Brighton, an excellent pub in Seaford, and a really really excellent pub in East Grinsted – I know, who’d a thunk it…?

Highlights: France

A brief flirtation in Paris with all the necessary romantic ingredients: a train station, a sunny walk in the park, plat du jour et le fromage.

A mini tour-de-france with my girls, wandering the countryside, seeking sunflowers, enjoying perfect picnics.

And finally long lazy days and even longer vin rouge evenings at the Chateau with ‘the crew’.

Highlights: San Francisco

A few days spent reaffirming that San Francisco IS my ‘second city’ to Sydney right now. Enjoying the luxury of revisting favourite places and finding new ones.
