So this weekend, amidst the torrential rain the east coast was experiencing, we headed to Paris to eat indoors.

God it’s been wet!!!!

Jordan, a fascinating country.
Friendly people, great food, Petra, the Dead Sea, red desserts…

One of the great takeaways from our trip to Jordan in 2018 was the stairs.
Everywhere! Some things never change!

Orange (France)

A beautiful town near Avignon, famous for its beautiful Roman amphitheater.
Those Romans sure were busy!

So this weekend, we went to Greenwich.

Some things have changed… there wasn’t an IGA last time we were here… but I’m pleased to report the Prime Meridian remains.

3 years to the day since we farewelled Tom before he headed off to study and live in Berlin.
We were overdue for a catchup, so we’re back! Hi Tom!

A bit cooler than last time we were here. And fewer restaurants… must be COVID

Beautiful Oxford. We were last here in 2016/17. Home of the University of Oxford, the oldest university in the English speaking world. And close to the more contemporary Macquarie University.

We need to get to Norfolk Island one day 🙂
Oxford’s changing. Unrecognisable to many from previous generations.

They did a good job rebuilding after the war.

Dresden Pl, Raymond Terrace

Bender Parade

Posted: January 31, 2021 in Sydney Streets

2018 we set out to walk all the streets in our family tree.

A few we didn’t manage to cover as the only instances of that street were geographically difficult.

So, this weekend, while we were up Newcastle way for something else, we walked Bender Parade, Kotara.

Keith and Pat Bender, Robyn’s parents. Great people.
