Five to go

We’re counting down to our next trip Down Under. On Thursday we depart for South Korea, via Hong Kong and on to the Top End of Australia. We’re making final preparations; printing hotel vouchers, buying sun lotion and setting aside items for family and friends. I’m looking forward to some well earned R&R. Work has been incredibly stressful, with long and exhausting days since our weekend in Milan. I can’t wait to kick back and explore the ancient billabongs of Kakadu.

However, before we pack our bags, there's one final event to host. Garry has invited friends over for a farewell lunch tomorrow. Today we've been preparing food all afternoon; marinating roasts, wrapping asparagus in Parma ham and baking mini pavlovas. The wine is chilling, alongside our salad ingredients and cheeseboard selection. It should be quite an afternoon.
