Traveling with bébé

Looking back at these photos, has reminded me how little and young Theodore was when we holidayed in Europe. Polo and I were laughing at the photos and the things we did with him, including: spending an entire day beach hopping on a boat, hiking in the mountains, catching chairlifts with him strapped in a baby carrier, spending days at the beach and visiting restaurants for lunch and dinner. I'm glad we did all these things and it was actually the perfect age - 5 months. Doing those things now, with a 16 month old would be totally different.. I don't think we could do them all / they wouldn't be as enjoyable. Teddy is at the age now, that we wants to explore and run around. 

We're heading to Bali in August for a week. We've found a great villa with our own pool (16 metres long!!) and a lovely tropical garden. It will be a different holiday, maybe not as relaxing as past holidays, but having our own pool will be wonderful. My sister and cousin are also coming, so hopefully they'll be happy to babysit a couple of nights, so Polo can I have some relaxing dinners :)

Shade / Sun

When we visit the beach, I like to find a spot that's got sun and shade. I've got fair skin, so am always careful to cover up and wear lots of suncream. I do manage to get a tan in summer, but it's quite slight and it takes we a while to get there. You'd probably say more sun kissed than tanned :). My best friend Edwina has very fair skin, so she's the perfect beach companion for me. Too bad we currently live on opposite sides of the world as she's my fellow big hat wearing, shade loving sister from another mister. She's got a term that I love, it's called 'lizarding'. It's sun-baking, but all covered up, lying on a towel with a big hat over your face. You soak up the sun, without getting burnt :). We have lizarded together in Croatia, Sardinia, Barcelona, South of France and Sydney. I very much look forward to future lizarding action somewhere in the world in the future with her.

Hope those of you in the Northern Hemisphere are enjoying your summer!

P.s I love how these two pics almost line up perfectly...

Sardinian details

The next few posts will be from our time in Sardinia last year... 
I won't be sharing all the photos I took as some are set to be published. I'll share more details about that down the track.

The above pics were taken in the places we stayed whilst on holiday, they capture some of the details I came across.

Happy weekend friends!

Take me back...

Picture postcards whichever way you look.
We were married in the Alps, at the local town hall. We had a photo outside this tiny church.

Take me back...

Lunch in the Alps

My next few posts are going to be in B&W. You see, I finally had those B&W films developed that I kept mentioning - it took a while. I found a good place in Sydney to develop the film and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. So perhaps I'll shoot some more B&W, I do enjoy it.

We're travelling back in time to August last year. The above photos were taken when we were in the Alps staying with Polo's family.  On this particular day we did a hike and had lunch after, basking in the sun and resting our legs. Gosh, I wish we were going back this summer... Although I waited so long to get these films developed, It's actually really nice looking at these images 10 months on, it brings back wonderful memories.

We're planning a Euro trip next year and I'm already excited.

Spring from our window

As you may have guessed, I finally got some more films developed. There were some shots from a while a go on one of the films. The 
photo above was taken from Teddy's bedroom. It's the most beautiful view in Spring when the Jacaranda trees are in bloom. 
I have to stop myself from taking loads of photos.
