A “Not” So White Christmas

After our amazing trip to Rome, It was time to get back to London and get stuck into our jobs and save some money for our next adventure. As it approached Christmas, we were hoping to experience our first white christmas, but it wasn’t to be. The weather in London has been unseasonably warm. So our dream of a white christmas will have to wait for another year.

As the year comes to an end, this is a good time to reflect of some of the amazing things Cara and I have experienced in 2011. We have set foot in 7 different countries (including Australia) in the last 12 months. Throughout this time we have seen the sights,  tried some outstanding food of course we have drunk a lot of cocktails. It all began in Osaka, Japan, where the food and the friendly hospitality of the locals blew us away. We couldn’t think of a better way to start our adventure. We then moved on to Kuala Lumpur, and it was my birthday, where plenty of “cocktail research” was done. Next was Abu Dhabi, which has been the biggest culture shock so far. The breath-taking sights of the grand mosque and having dinner in the desert, were 2 of the highlights from our time in the UAE.

It was then time for us to set up our base for our european stint of the trip, So we made our way to London. Our London experience is still happening and so far it’s been amazing. Our short trips to France and Italy, were both jammed pack holidays. We certainly made the most of our time in both places.

Overall, 2011 has been one of the most exciting years of our life's, but we still have so much more to see and do before we make our way back to Australia. 2012 is going to be another exciting year.
