Rue St Jacques

On our first ever European trip in 2013, Robyn and I flew in to Paris and stayed at an apartment on Rue St Jacques, midway between the Sorbonne and Notre Dame Cathedral.

(Stuart Greene, we will never forget that recommendation!)

We were like school children, giddy with excitement.

Paris didn’t disappoint.

This Jacques at Chatswood didn’t quite measure up, but hey, who can complain about a walk in the Sydney sunshine during a winter COVID lockdown.

(And yes, legal; Chatswood is within our 10km travel bubble.)


A lovely walk this weekend to Buckingham Palace Rd.

Behind Killara golf course, a beautiful tree tunnel leads to a pretty street with some huge blocks.

Belgium Ave in Roseville is just beautiful.

Huge blocks, beautifully presented houses; one of the prettiest streets we’ve walked this year.

And how good that the local shop sells Lindt hot chocolate! When in Belgium…

So this weekend, while on the Gold Coast for a conference, we went to Bali.

We haven’t been since 1996.

It’s changed!

This weekend we took advantage of the bubble and ducked over to New Zealand (St Parramatta).

A lovely weekend in Aotearoa!

Broome is closer to Europe than Sydney, so we took the opportunity to duck over to the continent and visit Lyon 🙂

A lovely walk around Amalfi this afternoon.

Must be getting fitter – didn’t notice the hills at all this time.

Amalfi Drive, Wentworth Point (Rhodes)

Sunday. Went to church.

Beautiful part of France, up near WWI fields.

Easy to see why Romeo found Juliet’s so easily. It’s the only one in the whole street!
