Adelaide: Queen of Cities

3 04 2011

What’s better to do on a cold night than drive up to Windy Point and view Adelaide, the Queen of Cities, in all its night-time glory?

And after that, there’s nothing better than hot waffles and soy icecream from Eggless, or tea in a cute sakura pot or hot apple caramel cake with soy icecream.





Illuminations

29 12 2010

Lights, both at home and further afield in Lobethal.

Christmas lights at one of the houses in Lobethal.

Not actually for Christmas but for New Years, I finally constructed our lanterns from Chiang Mai and set them up around the house.

Lantern from Thailand, tealights from Australia.





Sendai Winter Illuminations

28 12 2009

In December Sendai hosts some beautiful winter illuminations during their ‘Pageant of Starlight’ festival. We caught the Loople Sightseeing bus to the main street with lights and walked down the avenue of lit up trees. It was pretty cold so we stopped off at MOS burger and had some fries to warm up.

Earlier in the day we had lunch at Ohisamaya, a vegan organic cafe near the station.

For dinner we stopped off at Soup Stock Tokyo, a soup/curry shop in Sendai station. We had rice with minestrone – it was a vegan soup although not all of their items are vegan-friendly and they rotate their menu often.
