Exciting news

Hi everyone, I hope you’d be as excited as I am: le blog is back!

I know it’s been a while since the last post, but I can promise you that none of that time has gone to waste. I have travelled far and away, and I have piled up photos and memories from my wanderings to make sure you can see what I have seen and get inspired to travel yourselves.

Life in Colour

Luckily enough, my (fashion) free will is not limited by compulsory formal attire during weekdays. I work in a holiday company which operates a smart-casual dress policy and I am often in the mood for brightening up the office.

Finally, on the first day of Autumn I decided to go for a flowery dress to see Summer off properly!

Za-za-Zoo and Rock around the clock

On a sunny Saturday morning my three girlfriends and I went on a trip to the zoo. It was something I wanted to tick off my list of things to do before going back to the UK, so my girlfriends had to oblige, albeit they arrived an hour late.

After our small flock had finally gathered, we continued our trip down memory lane.

The marmoset monkeys were ignoring us, so naturally, one of my *completely sane* friends decided to attract their attention by making loud and very weird monkey sounds in close proximity to the fence of their cage, eventually scaring off all the little kids who were innocently enjoying themselves.

The monkeys scared us in turn when all of a sudden they went from being completely oblivious of our existence to rushing towards the fence and communicating back.

Our next encounter was much friendlier. Dessi, a female brown bear, was waving at the onlookers.

However, only later did we realise, that Dessi was only putting up an act to distract us all while the male bear was trying to make a run for it. Not an altogether pleasant thought…

We moved on to the more relaxed grazers.

When we were ready for some more excitement we swung by the big cat section of the park…

… but it turned out they weren’t in the mood to entertain us much more than the herbivores.

So we monkeyed around some more and made our way back to the city.

We went to our favourite rock club where we had a few Bloody Marys and some unexpected shots (compliments from the bar).

It was a great day to end summer on. I waved goodbye to my hometown and started packing for my new home-to-be.

Christening Craze

I’m a happy girl with LOADS of nephews and nieces.

Honestly, I was happy with my numerous cousins, but when they all started their own families, I was delighted to discover the joys of being an auntie to their criminally cute offspring.

I came home last week after I’d been away in the UK for seven months. One of the said cousins called to invite me to my second youngest nephew’s Christening and Birthday party.

Naturally, I had to get presents for all my nephews and nieces as I hadn’t seen them for so long. I’m not complaining or anything, I’d have a shopping spree any day, regardless of whether I’m treating myself, or picking something special for my loved ones.

Gifts

For the small ones…

There was a lot of posing, goofing around, and picture taking:

Then we grabbed our things (so to speak) and made our way to the restaurant…

…where we mostly continued to goof around, but we also had some great food.

In the end, we were all left with some sweet mints, and some even sweeter memories.
