Back in the (blogging) saddle!

Wow - it's well time I got back into the blogging saddle.  We're back in NZ after our month away and I guess we're gradually getting back to 'normality'.  To be honest, at times it felt more like a tour of duty than a holiday but really, it was wonderful to meet up with so many of those nearest and dearest to us.

Here's a small selection of photos that capture some of our experiences in Hong Kong, Ireland, Copenhagen and San Francisco.
View from Hutong restaurant, 1 Peking Road, Kowloon
Looking at cattle in Co. Mayo, Ireland
LOTS of bikes in Copenhagen
Elephant parade on the streets of Copenhagen
Cycling through Yosemite National Park in California
We stayed in a little gem of a hotel in Kowloon called the Luxe Manor where the design was incredibly cool (and the rates not too excessive!).

One of my favourite design features in our room was this cute bedside lamp:


Isn't it sweet?

Another design discovery for me on this trip was the Copenhagen department store Illums Bollighus.  This shop is four floors full of interior delights, many of which are, as you might expect, Danish designs.  Definitely worth a browse through their website.  I would spend sooo much money here if I lived in Copenhagen...
