I haven't been writing much AT ALL these days. Life has been busy and blogging has taken a firm seat on the back burner.
But, I am now living back in Sydney, Australia and after spending the weekend with some visiting friends around Bondi, Tamarama, markets and restaurants I was quickly reminded (not that I needed to be) how beautiful and diverse Sydney is.
I can honestly say it feels good to be back, after what seems a life time of travelling. I will be planting my feet here for a while as we now have a baby on the way who is due in August too, so it is very exciting times in our household.

But hey, that is why I love Mexico. Not a rule in sight.
