There’s nothing I enjoy quite as much as roadtripping somewhere new, especially when the location feels authentic. Some of the areas around Lake Tahoe have a great vintage Americana vibe, crossed with a swiss alpine village feel.

I am a total sucker for anything with a hint of vintage. There’s nothing quite as charming as a sense of history (imagined or real!). There’s beauty in the handmade and handcrafted, simply because it is unique.

It’s really such an amazing place. On one hand I feel like I’m swimming at a European Riviera, then I see the giant Redwoods and the snow capped mountains. Then I look to the side and realise that I’m swimming with a duck.

Celebrating Chinese New Year

As I have Chinese New Year on the brain, I had a quick look through my photo collection for CNY themed shots. (Forgive me if that banner doesn’t say anything about CNY, I can’t read it. But the colours and details are amazing!)

I particularly loved seeing people bringing home their CNY trees on the back of their bicycles.

Because I can be an old grumpy Nanna, I did not care much for people in Hanoi letting off fireworks whilst riding around on their motorbikes. They made me one very edgy pedestrian! Kids these days! Sheesh.
