Of course it was all about this bundle of fun.
Our youngest daughter is spreading her wings and spending a year in Australia.
Well, we did not need much of an excuse to think a year without seeing her was too long.
So the answer was to follow in her footsteps!
Without a backpack I might add.
Now her footsteps make a lovely route to follow but the chance to see some special places in the world was too good to miss.
It is impossible to choose favourite pictures as we loved so much but, it is also impossible,to not share a few with you.
The light show at night was amazing!
Buildings reaching to the sky.
What a treat to spend time in a city.
Such a change from our life in sleepy villages here and in Spain!
Now of course like the film "Sliding Doors" whilst all this sightseeing was going on the chance to spend time with all things Crafty was too good to miss.
The Bead Market in one of the oldest parts of the city was amazing.
Loved the button shop too!
And of course it would be rude to walk past the ribbon shop.
The "Sporty One" was incredibly patient as I walked around like a child in a sweet shop!
His turn later!
Luckily I kept a travel log so we shall be able to reminisce at our leisure!
Now I could spend all day blogging about the rest of our trip but I really have got to get all the debris to deal with.
So I will put our adventures in New Zealand on soon.
