Little India, Singapore



Bronte to Bondi with Sheree

A work trip to Sydney is always a perfect opportunity for me to see one of my finest friends, Sheree. She's lived in Oz for two years now and in that time we've met up 4 times - pretty impressive given the geographical divide, don't you think? See my previous blog from the last time we met in Sydney here or the time I visited her in Melbourne here.

We decided, this time around, to head to Bronte beach and take the shoreline walk to Bondi. Thanks to my sunburn ("Rookie!") we decided not to spend too much time on the beach and when we reached Bondi we found a table in the bar/bistro at Icebergs Swim Club.

The view of the saltwater pool on the beachfront is a bit bizarre.

We met another friend from Glasgow, Alex, who lives in Bondi and as the sun set we head back to her apartment for a drink. After meeting Alex's housemates and enjoying a wine we head back to Darling Harbour and commit carbicide.

For the rest of our time together Sheree and I did what we do best - Absolutely nothing.

That time I visited the house featured in Home Alone...

On a recent trip to Chicago we popped out to Winnetka, IL to visit the iconic house from everyone's favourite Christmas movie, Home Alone. It looks like the new owners have built the gate to keep pathetic Kevin fans like me out... "Look what ya did ya little jerk!"

In the movie!
In real life!
