I'm Leavin' On a Jet Plane - And a Blog Hiatus

You know that holiday I've been banging on about forever?  Well, in six days time I'll be sitting in the airport, equal parts stressed and excited, waiting to board my flight to Hong Kong.  From Hong Kong I'll fly onto Sydney, arriving about 9pm local time on December 23rd and then spending at least 30 minutes in a hot shower before laying down for the first time in more than 24 hours.

Early Christmas Eve we fly to Tassie, where I will spend Christmas with my family for the first time in six years!  

We'll also be visiting Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef and Melbourne for a few days, and then flying back to Tassie for my middle brother's wedding before making the trek back to Europe.  

25 days, 10 flights, 4 hotels, and more than 56 hours sitting and letting someone else do the driving (errr, flying) is going to be intense, crazy busy or completely offline, so I had to make a decision on what to do with the blog.  I played with the idea of just scheduling enough posts to make it through a month, and I probably could have done it, but it doesn't feel like the right thing to do for me.

So I've decided to take a hiatus - a proper, long, scheduled hiatus, so that I can enjoy my vacation, not worry about replying to things when I should be spending time with my family and boyfriend and enjoying my holiday, and also hopefully coming back refreshed and ready to get back into the swing of things.

Therefore, this is my last post for 2013.  I hope everyone has a fantastic, safe, happy Christmas and New Years, and I'll see you all when I'm back on January 19th!!

  2. Have a wonderful and safe trip my dear! Enjoy the long overdue family time, read a lot (on long trips I don't question that you'll do just that), take a lot of pictures and keep me posted how Mr. Potatoe is coping with Christmas in the summer (still, that's just weird - I think you should celebrate it in July on the southern hemisphere). We will all miss you but you so deserved a full time offline vacation.
