Back Home and A Welcome to Winter With a Touch of Orange


Back home in Tasmania after ten weeks of travelling. We had a wonderful trip ,saw so many amazing places
and enjoyed  new experiences and meet many wonderful people. I hope to share some of these on the blog
as I sort my many photographs, I so enjoyed being the photographer for a change.


Returning home to the crispness of a Tasmanian Winter has been a wonderful excuse to bring out some
of my travel souvenirs. No T Shirts, tea towels or other more conventional items for me, instead I added
to both my hat and glove collections. Both the orange gloves and the little hat I found in small shops in Paris.








I found for me me being away has heightened my sense of what is really important in my life. The people ,
friends and family, that keep me centred and the comfort of familiar surroundings. I also really missed this
little guy . 
I also missed blogging and my blogging friends, due to so many technical problems after the first post it all 
became too difficult , so I put it in the too hard basket and concentrated my energies on the trip.


So good to be back , hope everyone is well , safe and happy.

  10. Sounds like an amazing time. I think we need vacations, time to relax, unwind. I will be going to the NC beaches with hubby and pups soon, and will do just that. I feel the same way as to what is important in life. Love your hat from Paris, and the orange details with your fab coat. It is 90+ degrees here!
    Thanks for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday
