A big dream came true for me in May. My family and I moved back to live in London. I lost my heart to this city, and to Europe more generally, a long time ago.
It is wonderful to see the tulips blooming in the Embankment Gardens, listen to the buskers in Covent Garden, and see so many dear friends.
And there are new things to see–the completed Olympic Park, exciting pop-ups on the South Bank, the Shard skyscraper, and the Sky Rail gondola over the Thames at Greenwich.
My little heart has been jumping with joy at each new and old sight.
It has been a stressful month–packing up our home in Australia, traveling across the world, and establishing a new life in the United Kingdom. There has been a lot of pressure to move quickly on this because my daughter is due to start school. I am excited by that prospect as well as feeling a little emotional at the change about to happen in the life of my little family.
But I did find time to fulfill a travel dream of visiting Borneo. There are blog posts coming on climbing jungle-clad mountains, snorkeling in tropical waters, and meeting wildlife up close and personal.
I am already planning adventures for the remainder of the year–fulfilling a travel dream of a multi-day hike in the European Alps and attending my first travel blog conference.
Here are some photos to whet your appetite for my trip to Malaysian Borneo…
