Gerringong

This week we head to Gerringong to visit my parents and spent a bit of time wondering on the grounds of where they live… Quite a bit of prettiness around; this is what I captured 🙂

The Great Travel Adventure: Holland 5

This is our last week in Holland and indeed the last week of my photos from our AMAZING holiday last year. On our visit to Katwijk aan Zee we met up with our friend Anne-Marie, and enjoyed a delicious meal at the aptly named FRIENDS eatery. The following day we met up with another friend, the lovely Patina, in Amsterdam; we walked along the streets of Amsterdam and enjoyed a little snack at a gorgeous little café near the markets. The following photos are from those two places we visited; enjoy them 🙂
