who's the where

Some more of the amazingness of Melbourne. I go back in a couple of weeks and I can't wait, it really is a wicked city. Walking around is a colourful experience with all the alleys filled with some of the best street art in the world.

I'm wearing a madonna vest my sister bought me and a black sarong skirt thing- which doesn't work that well when it's windy and I always end up either flashing or having to go change.
It's hard living out of a suitcase, I am bored of all my clothing, everything is always screwed up-me and the iron are just not friends.

there are no words just smells

So far 2010 has not been my best year at blogging, I have been in Australia since October and so far my 'blogging' (hate that word) has been sporadic at best. I have 2 blogs and I am sad to say that any internet time I have had dedicated to 'blogging' (seriously hate that word) has mostly been spent on my other blog COCONUT TRAVELS - and I am 2 months behind on that too. So please accept my sincere apologies and I hope that I can be a little more consistent with my posting on BLONDE ON BLACK .

I just got back from a magical trip to Fiji. It was absolutely beautiful, the sky was like a dream it had the most beautiful sunsets when the it would turn all kinds of shades of pink, and at sunrise it became a deep orange as the sun came up over the mountains. Each night there was countless stars in the midnight blue sky, and even on the rare occasion in the late afternoon when the usually bright blue sky became overcast it looked like it belonged to story about mythical creatures.

I am now in Sydney for the next 3 weeks so any Sydney-siders have any tips or must-do's please let me know, the Lonely Planet guide book is great but you can't beat inside advice.

Obviously the picture in this post are not from Fiji, the top and bottom photos are from London and the middle one is of the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted from Ganache in Melbourne. This is what I am craving right now, the sweetness tantalising my taste buds, the richness filling my mouth, the velvety texture satisfying my throat and the slightly sticky essence left behind on my lips tempting me for another sip. It's 9:30 am and all I can think of is HOT CHOCOLATE.
