With friends

Munich at Dusk

A beautiful post sums up where we are at the moment, over here, by my friend Sylvia. 

In one week we will be on our flight back home.

Little (Italian) Book Adventure

This month's challenge on The Little Book Adventure is to find new places to read. Since Sienna and I are away almost the entire month, since the 3rd til the 30th, it has been inevitable that we find new places to read along the way! To begin with, at the gate in Melbourne International airport waiting for our first flight, Sienna was reading The Little Prince.

She continued reading The Little Prince on the Paris metro and regional trains, but in Florence we found an English bookshop and she read more than one book sitting in this chair there... She ended up selected Olivia goes to Venice (which she just HAD to have, since we had come to Florence from Venice).

To read about a girl in Paris

I'm not really blogging from over here in Europe, but helping Sienna update her blog every few days. Check it out for some more pics :) After the first day Sienna wasn't as interested in photography, lol, so they are mostly mine after that first blog post about arriving.

And now, we're going out to explore Venice!

Auf Wiedersehen and Au Revoir

"Leaving on a jet plane..." Sienna and I are heading to Paris soon. Ben is taking the boys to Reedy Creek for a few days - dropping us off at the airport on the way - before coming home on Melbourne Cup Day to a new routine for the next 4 weeks.

Sienna has a blog over here, where she'll be writing now and then, hopefully including photos that she takes etc. I'm not sure what I'll be doing, as I'm approaching the time off as a "no expectations" thing. With the exception of looking after Sienna, teaching her and not missing trains and so on ;)

It is very exciting, and very near. The suitcases are in the car, the plane departs just after 11pm. I'll be around... and home again in the evening of the 30th November.
