Vacation Hangover

Three  months have come and gone since my visit to the land down under yet I'm still nursing a vacation hangover. Kaymee set a Skype date with Joy and I over the weekend and we were talking endlessly again about our short time together in Melbourne, hoping there'd be a repeat. I'm planning to send them postcard photos just to have a little reminder of those lovely days in April.

I was also chatting with Lauren the previous day and while talking, I was looking at our photos taken in Sydney- that day we braved the cold and walked along Bondi Beach. I was too ecstatic to see some surfer dudes but heck no one was out surfing that day. We got tired and hungry after walking so we ordered some fish and chips and deep-fried Mars bar to share. I was just lucky I didn't gain much weight during the 10 days that I was in Oz but man, I did eat a lot.





Sydney sunset is breathtaking as can be seen from the photos below. Both shots were taken somewhere in Circular Quay, the second shot while I was on a cruise after the visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park where I fed kangaroos and pet adorable koalas. If I can just pack one little koala in my bag and take it with me to Taipei, I would have done so. They are just sooo cute. And smelly hehehe.





Now I guess I need to move on and plan some other things in my life. I have no more personal trips for the rest of the year, but we'll be traveling for work in October-November and the schedule is pretty crazy I don't even wanna think about it. I have downloaded some new ebooks (sorry I'm such a cheapskate) and I'm spending time to read again. On days when I feel like my brain is empty (hahaha) and I need to learn something, I bring home issues of Time and The Economist magazines from work and try reading them from cover to cover. Aja aja!

Yes! But sad that we weren't allowed to carry them...

Whoa! Your luggage full of chocolates looked like mine when I came back from Japan! Haha! Ang laki pala ng Koala! Akala ko kasing laki lang sila ng cats! ^_^

Hi Milet! Haha yes all my clothes are in my carry-on bag, the chocolates had eaten up all my luggage space :) Yung ibang koalas baby pa lang kaya mas maliit, I think medyo matanda na yung nilabas nila :)

Hi sis! I want to have a travel hangover, too! I think it's one of the best things. Haha. Like you know, explore a place for days or weeks or even months and go home still longing for it. Yay, these photos of yours make me feel excited with our family trip to SG this month. Will truly enjoy.

Btw, thank you so much for dropping by. I thought no one reads my blog anymore. I do not write as often as before but still love updating my page every once in a while. Just because I love it. Cheers, dear. xoxo

Hi! Found your website via Girltalk. Just wanted to say that I know exactly what you mean about vacation hangovers. >.< It's been over a year since TB and I went to Holy Land with my family and there are nights when we stay up late just talking about it and missing the place. :D
