Well, Hi All!
First of all, let me excuse us for not having posted over the last week or so. We took a short break to Sydney, house- and dog-sitting in Surry Hills for some friends of mine, and the week prior we were madly preparing!
What a trip it has been. Both of us flew down last Thursday, and unfortunately The Academic had to fly back on Monday due to meetings and study/show commitments. I fly back tonight and I am hoping for a smooth, timely flight after the lengthy delays, turbulence and disorganisation of the flight down.
Well, the eating! Woah. I definitely need a break from rich/large portions of food for a while, I'm definitely suffering from food exhaustion. For some reason, for the first time in my life, the idea of eating white carbohydrates has no appeal, and I just want to eat wholesome, nourishing, simple foods, proteins, fruit and vegetables. The Academic will be pleased by this.
I'll be needing a bit of a holiday to recover, as it has been a whirlwind tour. When I've not been eating or walking, I've been doing doggy things. What high maintenance dogs can be! It's a whole other world with social outings, walks and schedules! I do have more of an inner sense of calm, and I've purchased some interesting books and had a good look around while down here.
We'll be back soon with some Sydney-specific eating advice with tips and recommendations, one from each of our perspectives, and in the meantime there will be some chocolate-themed posts, including The Urban Vegan's Raw Chia Pudding and a boozy mexican-inspired iced chocolate... Enjoy!
