Hey guys, I know it's been a while since I've written, but without a digital camera it's been pretty hard documenting my travels. Or at least I keep telling myself that as a poor excuse for the lack of posts. Since the first photos of Stockholm everything has been taken on my mobile phone, or on various Lomo cameras waiting to be developed.

So what's been happening?

  • Went to Moscow with my mate Andrew, who I met on the Toronto layover. Was the first time I took pictures with the Holga, and the results are bizarre to say the least...

  • Had 2 layovers to Johannesburg, and fully intended to visit the lion park. Unfortunately on both trips it was raining, so no hugging the cubs this time. Spent the layover gorging on snails, biltong, borweors and the most amazing steaks from The Butcher Shop and The Bull Run. And just chilling in Nelson Mandela Square...

  • Getting into a decorating frenzy with my new apartment. Since coming back from Stockholm I've been personalising the place week by week. Flights to Houston and New York haven't helped the credit card at all, my most 'ridiculous' purchase so far (well considering how cheap a regular one is from Carrefour) was a shower curtain from Anthropologie at $98 USD. If my dad found out he's have a heart attack... it's so pretty though...

  • Have applied for the Dubai Royal Airwing for the second year in a row. Hoping to score an interview, as it'll be a step up from what I'm doing now, plus it'll give me a chance to fly with them with my current employer's support.
  • Currently have a busted right tricep muscle, which was done during a gym class. I could feel it give way whilst doing some bench dips, and it's a right pain in the arse. I'm now limited to doing the R1 Duty Free position as I can't lift any containers in the galley.

  • Since the last time I posted I've also managed to catch up with Ben and Clauderic who have now got me addicted to choquettes from Kayer's.
  • We had a new uniform launch at our airline! And surprise, surprise, I no longer fit into it :-( I was able to wear it before most of the main fleet during a business promotion in Sydney for the Autumn Racing Carnival at Randwick, and it fit perfectly, but alas I have had one too many lobster meals from First class, so now the month of July I'm not permitted to have a hot meal until I can fit again. The blouse is my biggest concern. It looks like I've been to Yanhee hospital in BKK and had a boob job.

So that's pretty much it. Aside from the above I've just been spending my spare time ice skating and cooking up some meals at home for work. Also have no exotic trips planned, just 3 turns and a Perth layover. Lucky me :-)
