I have been travelling in Italy for almost two weeks, drinking cappuccinos and living the good life.  Sadly, my computer has not fared so well.  I hope to be able to start regular blog posts soon.  For now, please enjoy a few photos from Florence, city of my dreams.

My brother Simon and I loved walking through the narrow streets.  We could not believe our eyes when we turned a corner and saw the Duomo for the first time.

If you don’t hear from me soon, it will be because I’ve permanently relocated to Florence.  In addition to the coolest building ever, it is home to amazing art and the wonderful Boboli gardens.


Hug This Post

Hello friends!

Today’s post is for all the snuggle-lovers out there.  You might be aware that Australia is home to some of the most dangerous animals in the world.  Of the ten most horrible (or wonderful, if you like deadly animals) snakes in the world, eight happily reside in OZ.  But Australia is also home to animals that look like perfect cuddle buddies.  Look at all of the sleepy koalas!

And here are some more precious animals!

Oh my goodness!  Is that a video of a baby koala snuggling with its mother?

Note: I am aware that koalas are NOT actually good for hugging.  A girl can dream.
