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.
Snow Pony … best coffee and food! (Melbourne)
Sampling what the locals have to offer.. . (mum’s favourite!)
He helped out getting ready for one the most beautiful weddings I have EVER been to!
Got a kiss from the bride!
Made it up the aisle.
We then stayed with some of the loveliest that got all a bit excited with Derek. Here are the best.
There were trains…
And our endless search for good coffee…
Riding my brothers coat tails.. . or pockets!
In Byron Bay Derek mounted a classic aussie burger, beetroot, egg, bacon, pineapple … and the normal bits. Yum!
Visiting a little church in country Australia…
Taking in the sights…
Checking out the surf…
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!
