Derek Travels

On my little/epic journey to Australia I realised, on my way,that I had forgotten my little travelling companion. I searched all of the toy stores in Kuala Lumpur airport, two, to find a suitable replacement but to no avail. Speaking no chinese or malay I had to mime ‘dinosaur’. Hot.

On my arrival to one of the best cities in the world, Melbourne, I sheepishly asked one of the best ladies in the world, Julia, if we could stop by a toy store to get my hands on a little dinosaur. Turns out in the room I was staying was a lovely little orange dinosaur that was left there ‘accidentally’ or even providentially.We embarked on a little instagram adventure #derektravels.

So here documented in just a few of the pictures are Derek’s Travels. 

Derek and I share a passion for good food. . .

Homemade chutney and cheese on sour dough bread with torn chicken, rocket and dressing.

It was just a little bit of fun but was nice to have a little dino face to associate my 2012 trip with!

Derek, thanks for the laughs!
