I went on my first cruise over the weekend and share my thoughts as well as a few photos.
Nicholas doesn’t need a lot of words. Finding cloud ninety-three (part II) is a retelling of how I came to realise he was the love of my life. I could write so much about him, and I know that unlike our previous experiences, our love began and grew mutually, and we didn’t just try our hand at a relationship, but we both fell in love with each other. From thinking the same thing to having a thousand trivial things in common, and understanding each other’s metaphors and having our special things – I wouldn’t want to be with anyone else. The poem Forever sunshine was (one of many poems) written for him.
Nick and I visited Rottnest Island, off the coast of Perth. The only way to get around the island is to drive or ride a bike, so we hired bikes!
A brief recount of our dinner on New Year’s Eve. Nick and I went to a restaurant that I’m all too familiar with!
Everyone is making resolutions, but I don’t like hard-and-fast resolutions or goals. Just somewhere to aim towards, and just staying positive and trying to be a better person. I didn’t set any big goals last year, but I achieved a lot. And 2017 can be the same.
It’s time to say farewell to 2016. I write about my feelings regarding the year, and write out some of the highlights in a monthly format.
Got a few minutes? Good! Then you can watch this little video Nick and I put together of our trip to Europe and Singapore. It’s under four minutes (promise) and it’s set to one song. Nothing too excruciating, and it’s pretty fast-paced as well. 🙂
Yaaaaaay finally my Singapore post is hereeeeee!
I have been to Singapore once before, in 2008, with my family. It was around Christmas time, before Marina Bay Sands was around, and we took time to experience a bit of nightlife… mostly eating. 😛 On this trip, we didn’t go out much at night, but we did the obligatory zoo visit, aquarium visit, and garden visits. And had a lot of good food.
We were only in Milan for a day because we weren’t as keen on exploring it as we were other cities in Italy. We did need to travel to Milan because of its international airport anyway. This is a pretty quick post, but stay tuned for my Singapore post, which should (finally) be around in the next week!
We visited Rome towards the end of June on our trip to Europe. I’m not sure what the Romans actually do in Rome, but we did visit many of the buildings that were a huge part of their lives. I think it’s amazing that the old buildings still stand. There’s nothing really like that in Sydney, which might explain why I find it so interesting.
Compared to other cities we visited, I didn’t leave Rome with the feeling of wanting to really come back. On the flip side, I feel like it actually had the most sights and experiences that I enjoyed. The Colosseum is a must-see, as is Vatican City, but they were not my favourite parts of the trip…
Finally, a post about Florence! Our trip to Florence was only for three nights, and it was three weeks ago, but I still wanted to write about it, of course. There aren’t photos of absolutely everything I’ve described, but I picked out some nice ones. We did visit a lot of museums in Florence, some more interesting than others, but at least we can say we’ve done them all.
I also bought a pair of brogues in Florence, which still have to make their way into a Fashion Friday outfit some time soon. I feel like they are the last shoes I will ever need.
And so, Florence: the city I feel needed just a little more time to fully appreciate.
