1. What's the last thing you took a photo of?
Above is the last picture I took from our weekend wine tour in the Adelaide Hills. This view reminded me of a the picture I have of myself and friends visiting Neuschwanstein Castle outside of Munich (though the Adelaide Hills are considerably smaller). Perfect weather, great wine and the best company. 
It's days like that I feel very very lucky to enjoy such a lifestyle. A friend of mine recently had something awful happen to her and I am feeling very grateful for the health and happiness of those closest to me, 

2. What's your favourite meal to make at home?
I've become quite good at making a vegetarian phở noodle soup, and tom yum soup. I also love having lots of dishes to choose from, so I'll make a coleslaw, beetroot and lentil salad, pan fried potato and sweet potato and some vegetarian schnitzels. This was a bad question to ask, because I could talk about food for days...

3. Do you play any instruments?
Sadly no, I learned to play piano in primary school and once asked Pete to teach me to play guitar but never cared enough to become skilled at playing either. 

4. Inside or outside?
As much of a bookworm as I am, I love the outdoors. With this gorgeous weather, I need to be outside, exploring my local area, visiting farmers markets, going on wine tours, walking on the beach. I especially miss surfing. 

5. Favourite season and why.
Summer, all the way. Adelaide summers can be so punishing, but I absolutely thrive on it. Going to the beach after work, long hot nights hanging out with friends and drinking beer, cute summer dresses, road trips, tans, iced drinks, salads, Christmas, NYE. 

6. How many hours of sleep did you get last night? Was that enough?
I got my eight hours sleep, though unfortunately woke up with a cold. 

7. Current favourite TV show.
I really dig The Block to get decorating ideas for when I eventually own my own home. I am also working my way through Season 3 of Fringe, and last night watched the first ep of a new Aussie drama called The Code, which has me very interested! 

8. What's one thing on your bucketlist?
Travel, always. I'd also like to write a novel. 

9. Best way to cheer yourself up.
Shopping. Coffee. Sunshine. Reading. 

10. Put your music player on shuffle... what's the first song that plays?
Probably something by Elliphant or Evian Christ 

11. What was the last thing you spent money on?
Dinner with the family. Wine tour. Photobook for my wedding pictures.

  1. Yay! The tag worked! Mwahaha. I miss surfing as well! Maybe we could camp somewhere along the coast and go for a surf while we're there?

    Sorry to hear your friend had something awful happen to her :(
