Love Letter from... Gippsland

Gippsland countryside at dusk

Hullo again, dear readers! I had the best intentions to post more frequently about the adventures I've been having in Australia, as suggested in my last post. As it turns out though, I've been opting to stay away from the computer more often than not. I've been missing posting and missing reading my fellow blogger's posts but there's just so much to see and do here so I just haven't been getting around to it. I know that you will all forgive me if I continue to be rather absent for the time being...

I thought I'd share just a few pictures with you though, of where I am in the world. I'm in Gippsland, which is the south-east corner of Australia, east of Melbourne. It is truly beautiful countryside - I just can't get enough of drinking it all in. Photographs do not do it justice! I've also been having fun seeing some of the humble but pretty historic buildings around the place. I do have so much to share, but so little time to share it in! Not to mention the fact that the internet connection where I am is rather slow, so uploading all the pretty pictures to illustrate my posts would take an absolute age...

So, if you don't hear from me for a while, please forgive me! And rest assured, I will return some day soon.

Love Letter from... Australia!

Dear readers! I have been absent from Blogland for weeks! I am now on holiday in Australia and, you may not be surprised to hear, have had little opportunity or patience for sitting at a computer. You may, however, be surprised to hear that I have been without my own camera since leaving England and have been reliant on friends for loans of cameras when I have been out and about, but that has limited my chances for going wild with photographing. Which is a shame because Sydney has so many lovely buildings! A giddy richness of early twentieth-century offerings, in particular...

I have now departed Sydney for the time being (though I will return there before going back to England) and am in the countryside of the state of Victoria. I have also now acquired a camera to use as and when I will. So, expect something more hopefully sometime at a point in the not-too-distant future.
