Five things… we love about Toowoomba

22 Dec

There is no doubt travelling the world opens your eyes, ears and mind to different cultures, experiences, sights, smells and sounds. But our travels have also helped us see a new perspective of the place we call home as we continue to enjoy rediscovering Toowoomba and those typical experiences you wouldn’t get anywhere else but in Australia. Here’s our five things we’ve been loving about being home:

{1. Beautiful blooms… arriving home in the Spring, the Garden City is full of life and colour.}

{2. Stunning sunsets… there is nothing like an  Australian sunset. The sky glows with gold, crimson and purple in what makes a spectacular sight.}

{3. Beautiful buildings and green spaces… The beautiful Empire Theatre and the stunning Japanese Gardens are favourite Toowoomba landmarks for us. It’s not hard to see why.}

Aussie Backyards

{4. Backyards…  big enough to run around with the kids, be silly and have fun.}

Summer Storm

Hail Storm

{5. Summer Storms… after a hot steamy day, the storm clouds form in the distance before slowly rolling in, bringing with them a thunder and lightning show and spectacular photo opportunities. We’re looking forward to more over the Summer months!}

Five things… we love about spring in London

27 Mar

As London slowly warms, off come the outer-outer layers and up come the bulbs in parks and in gardens around the city. Spring is a lovely time to enjoy London, but it also means our time in the UK is coming to an end. We’re soaking up as many of the warm sunrays and experiences as we can around London town during this beautiful season.

{Daffodils can be seen popping up in parks and gardens around the entire city, all as if from nowhere. They really do bring a sunny disposition to the city streets}

{Dusk gets later and later as we delve deeper into spring. The clocks have turned forward and there is sunlight now as we walk out of work in the evenings. It’s so nice to walk home from the tube in the beautiful twilight}

{Outdoor activities become more and more frequent with the warmer weather, especially on Sunday afternoons when the need to drown out thoughts of work the following day become necessary. You can always count on a friendly backyard BBQ – no matter how small – to do the trick}

{It gets extremely exciting when the sun comes out – it means you’re able to shed those outer layers. Sure, you still need a cardy but at least you can feel a weight off your shoulders with that bulky winter jacket gone, just don’t put it out of sight yet as the weather is still unpredictable!}

{The end of March marks the beginning of having only three months left in the UK! Our room is scattered with travel guides as we read up on all the amazing countries we’re set to visit on our travels home. I’m not sure if I should be crying saddness or sprouting happy smiles at the thought of leaving! Maybe this blog will shed some light…}
