Well - I finally got a bit of organising done and I've put up some pics of my trip to Turkey. Phewf. Lovely trip all round, beauty and wow the all the architecture over time. I don't think I really understand the time frame of everything. I have spared you all from my pictures of architectural detail (you know how I LOVE picture of detail). I tried to get a smattering of everything. We visited Istanbul and the region of Cappadocia. Both were really lovely. One word to sum up Istanbul is chaos!

It seems as if I have many a reason to visit Germany lately - I think the best one is that its so very close! I was in Berlin last week for a Bioplastic Conference, and decided to stay a couple of extra days to see the city! I mean, why not, I can't think of another time I might just happen to be in Berlin, with all this flexible time on my hands. It was a great trip, I spent some time bicycling around, going to museums, and just generally being inspired (I did get a design direction out of it, but I'm not telling what it is yet). What a great city, and I really did love the Curry-wurst with fries (sausage with ketchup and curry powder, and fries - yum!) The architecture is AMAZING - so many different styles and visions all in one place, I felt as if I was walking through a history of design class with Sue Barnwell. Enjoy my photos!

Well, I left the UK once again. This time to go to the wedding of my dear friends Joe and Birgit in Bavaria. It was rather lovely, and I took a few pictures. I've posted some of my favourite ones here - the ones at the end are of Munich. We ended up going to Munich on Sunday as bit of a last minute adventure. We were accompanied by Mica and Wolfgang , and their son James. We had a lovely time!

Another mini-vacation for me... Fun fun. I had a nice long weekend break in Battersea a couple of weeks ago. It was absolutely lovely, I even styled my breakfasts for photoshoots (oh the luxury). I spent my Saturday wandering around, I found a local market and lots of very nice cafes etc. Then in the evening I went to a jazz concert in Battersea park and read a book in the grass. On Sunday I just relaxed. I did go to the Mall - woo hoo, I haven't been to a mall in AGES, it was surreal. They had a Poundland, how exciting. I got some school supplies (mostly tape - I always need tape). And then I went to H&M where they were having a clear-out sale, and I got a lovely t-shirt to go with my pretty red skirt. It was a lovely weekend, and I plan on another weekend like that in a couple of weeks, thank goodness, I think I need the break. I have more pics here if you happen to be interested.

J'adore Paris. Phewf, that was enough French out of me. I went to Paris last weekend. It was wonderful. The views were great, the weather was great, the food was great, and of course the company was great (I met up with Shan and Adam from TO). I just loved it. I took the Eurostar, which was so easy! I think I'm going to have to go more often! You can check out my photos here...

Man, I'm on a roll today... Here are some pics of the trip I took with my parents to York, Edinburgh and Glasgow. For some reason they didn't upload in order, so you'll just have to guess where each one was taken. The trip was amazing - we drank a lot of coffee and saw lots of old stuff - fun was had by all.
So, I went to Romania with Alex in April. We spent a week there. It was a great trip. I've posted some pictures here... I made this album for a friend (Rebecca in Mtl) - so you may not appreciate all of the funny things like the graphics, but I still wanted to share.
