Leica- Gemany/Vienna

Germany 2012

So this is my first roll of film developed from one of my favourite new cameras, my Leica M6. It has taken me a while to get used to this camera, with its separate lens/viewfinder and getting used to using a light meter is has been a challenge. This was a cheap roll of film but picks up some serious colour. These photos were taken throughout Germany and Vienna in November of last year. I really miss Autumn, especially now we are living in an area of Australia that has no real change in seasons.

Off to a great start....


Well we didn't plan on taking a little pause on the blog, but life happens and so did the break. This month has been a roller coaster for Morgan and I. We moved into our new place, after 13 months of living with others and in hotels and hostels, and settled into life in a new city. It has be so lovely to have our own space again and to start afresh. We have both been so excited to have a kitchen and have been loving having guests over so we can create lots of treats to eat. Its incredible the simple things you miss when you don't have your own home. We have been blown away by the kindness of our family and friends and are so refreshed to have these people back in our lives again.
Its funny to think that at times this move coming back to Australia seems crazier and more challenging that what we did packing up and heading to Europe. We really didn't know what we were going to do getting back here until we got the lease approved to move into our apartment. Morgan has picked up a great job with great hours and I am still on the hunt, but things have been falling into place that we have no doubt we are where we are meant to be.
In terms of this blog, we want to keep going. This was never a travel blog, but as we began moving around all the time, the blog followed in that direction too. We don't really know what our lives are going to look like this year, but I am sure that no matter what happens the blog will follow along for the ride.
Thank you so much to everyone who has been reading. As always it is a real privilege to have people read along and interact and share the journey with us.
We will be back soon with much more.

Heading East


We are off again and starting the next stage of our year. Its pretty hard to stay still in Europe, with so many exciting and interesting places in such a close proximity, so we aren't. Today we head to Prague and begin a 2 month train trip through Eastern Europe. We will be heading through Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, and ending in Turkey. Above is a little map of our travels from when we left Paris in mid September, to the end of December. Not yet sure what we will do next year, but Turkey seems to be a lovely place to escape for winter.

Well as our time here in Oslo comes to an end we look back with such joy at our time here. Honourable mention to our super host Adeline for a saweet week. Not only did she house us in her awesome apartment, but being a certified tour guide and knower of all things coffee and fun, made for some rad times. Boating, tram-ing, busing and walking around this beautiful city streets, museums and coffee shops has left our hearts filled with joy and our wallets emptier than when we came. This is a place we would come back to with PLEASURE...

Oslo: island hopping


Oslo has a great public transport system which even includes ferries. Kim and I were stuck as to what to do one afternoon so decided, let's go explore. We jumped off on the first island that took our fancy and explored the old houses, pine forests and calm seaside.

Edinburgh, Scotland


Today we leave Edinburgh and our way to the other side of Scotland to visit and old friend of Kim's, before we go into Glasgow. We had some beautiful weather and the typical downpours, but this historic city has moistened our taste-buds for more of Scotland. Our trip highlights, lots of lovely little museums and galleries, a great airbnb apartment, a interesting guided tour through the city and a nice cup of coffee.

Orleans, France

In January, when we first arrived in France, we took the time to travel around and visit Morgan's aunties and uncle. As we were heading up towards Paris again, we decided we would pop back in and spend a couple of days with them again while we were in the area.
We had a great couple of days in Orleans, just relaxing and spending time with the cousins. Now we are in Lardy and have really enjoyed sharing stories of our year so far and eating great food. Yesterday we went to a park we visited last time we here. As a special thing for summer they had row boats available to take out on the creek for free. It was a fun little afternoon, and great time spent with family.
Tomorrow we head to Paris, for 5 days, then jump on our first plane in a while and visit Scotland.

Dijon is such a lovely little city. Untouched during the French revolution, it has a mismatch of buildings from almost every era. Filled with churches, multi coloured roofs and if you try really hard, the smell of mustard. We were so blessed to have stayed with a couchsurfing host in the very center of town. He was such a super, kind guy, with plenty of amazing travel stories. This could be one of my favourite towns in France, made so much better by the amazing hospitality of our new friend.

We have had a lovely 4 days in Lyon. We were very fortunate to be able to stay at a friend of a friend's cousins apartment in the best area of town, while they are off travelling. We spent our days walking up and down the cobbled streets, exploring the parks, enjoying the views from the top of the hills and eating great meals. When we arrived on Monday night we got see Bon Iver play an incredible show in and old Roman amphitheater. It was amazing. Today we are heading north again, and off to Dijon for a couple of days.
