We're taking a little break from the chilly rain and escaping to the southern shores of Victoria to celebrate Christmas with our Aussie friends by surfing on the beach and trekking the verdant tree-fern filled forests by the Great Ocean Road. I can almost smell the eucalyptus and tea trees already... and feel the salty surf against my cheeks. A couple of captivating gardens are on the agenda, to be shared with you in January. Smultronställe, which literally translates "a good spot for finding wild strawberries", is a Swedish word for describing the most special places in ones life, and today, we are heading off to one of ours, far away in Australia.
With luggage ready by the entrance and a taxi waiting to take us to the airport, I wish you all a peaceful holiday season whatever and where ever you are celebrating. All the best for the coming new year, and I'll be back in January 2011!*
