If you’ve been keeping up with my previous posts you’ll have seen that I recently travelled to Venice for a week. Heres a break down of what I got up to every day with links to some earlier blog posts that include a little bit more information about each activity.
Day One: Parco San Giuliano, boat ride
After spending the evening before travelling and getting settled in my hotel, I decided to take the first day easy and headed on over to San Giuliano Park where I had lunch and sat by the waters edge looking over at Venice. I then took a short boat ride with my friend and one of the locals and explored the bay area a little while.
Day Two: St Marks Square + Parco delle Rimembranze
Since it was my first time in Venice, I thought it’d be good to see the most popular spot…

Exactly a year ago, I arrived in Doha. I was excited & nervous which I think is pretty normal for someone who has just moved to a new city or country. The last year has had its fair share of ups & downs, but overall it has been the best year of my life. I feel like I am in such a good space – I love my job, I love living here, I love my new lifestyle. I also love how even after a year, everything still feels new & like an adventure. I have compiled a list of things that I’ve noticed or encountered over the last year which make me giggle.Most people assume I am Australian.
Really? Could you not have chosen any other nation?
People are surprised that I’m from Africa & I’m white.
“Why are you white?” – Well gee, I honestly don’t know.

So if you’ve been following along for a little while, you know that the Wales portion of our trip started out with some
death threats and divorce declarations adventure. But climbing Crib Goch up Mount Snowden wasn’t the only thing we got up to in Wales. It wasn’t even the main thing… just the deadliest.
Rather, Wales was all about castles. Castles, castles, castles! But before I get to that, I’ll catch you up on my experiences with the Welsh language. As you may recall, I made some effort to learn a little Welsh before our departure. I won’t say I regret it, because I never regret learning the language of a country I’m visiting. Rather, I’ll say I didn’t much need it. I was diolch-ing and bore da-ing my way all over north Wales, but that’s about the extent of it. The husband and…

If I were forced to use just one word to describe our entire UK road trip, it would be this:
That’s right. Sheep. Not castlesor curriesor funny place names or even cycling, though those things did factor heavily into our travels. But starting in the Peak District, it seemed to be all sheep, all the time.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me start by saying that this portion of the trip was largely dedicated to cycling and hiking, so that’s what we did.
After saying goodbye to the husband’s family and departing Newark, we drove to the Peak District, the UK’s first national park. We made a quick stop in the town of Bakewell to gorge on Bakewell pudding and Bakewell tart, checking off two more items on our What to Eat Where list. I wasn’t surprised to find that the husband and…

Ah, family. I was going to start off in a jocular vein, pondering as to whether family is the bedrock of society or the source of all its ills, (probably a bit of both, eh? 😉 ) but the husband sagely surmised that my mother wouldn’t take kindly to my tactless attempt at humor, and the reaction of the husband’s family is a big unknown, so never mind.
Anyway, we were long overdue for a joint visit to the husband’s family in his hometown of Newark-upon-Trent in England, but first we had to get there.
Alighting from the plane at Heathrow, still reeling from the after-effects of a sleeping pill (me) and sub-par, drug-free airplane sleep (the husband), we collected our suitcases and bike box and made our way to the rental car pick-up area, where the agent brightly informed us that she was able to upgrade us from a…
