THURSDAY 16th TOPPINGS: of passionfruit pulp, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds and roasted pecans added a touch of decadence to a dessert of layers of cinnamon coconut cake, espresso jelly, kheer and ice cream. It’s not often we have such concoctions and I did wish I could have served it in the Deco Parfait glasses I have at home in Oz instead of these everyday water ones but there were no complaints about the taste #littlemomentsapp#FMS_toppings#dessert#toppings#cambodia#keptomaniac#kep#lifeintheslowlane#gratitude
Contrary to what I might like and what you might believe, I don't actually enjoy wine *every* night.
But I know I will tonight and that makes me happy.
A bunch of mamas are coming over to hang out, sip wine and talk essential oils and I can't wait!
I just had a great interview with Bob the Brewer at Hilton Head Brewing Company. They even stir the mash with an Oar. How’s that for locally themed brewing? They were also the first brewery to open in South Carolina after prohibition. How many years did it take for South Carolina to license a brewery after prohibition? #LifeInTheSlowLane . @linksandlibations @hhbrewingco #beer#craftbeer#breweries#hiltonhead
Surprisingly, for the son of a hardcore bookworm, Alexander has always been a very reluctant reader. It's not his fault, he has battled a serious visual impairment only to find he has dyslexic tendencies. This was my latest attempt to get him switched on to reading, my favourite childhood comic. I can't tell you how happy I am to see that it's working! Thank you Beano!
WEDNESDAY 15th ANIMAL: Almost every Khmer family in this area seems to keep at least a few of these cows. They are by far the animal most commonly sighted in these parts. They are somehow an asset although they are not milked and not raised for meat. Many locals hand feed them or spend part of their day walking them to and from roadside spots including the median strip, where they can graze #cambodia#kep#littlemomentsapp#FMS_animal#cowsofcambodia#cows#lifeintheslowlane#gratutude
I’m heartbroken to say this was taken on the very last leg of my bikepacking trip around bonnie Scotland. I cycled from Sligachen this day, down to Armadale and took the ferry to Mallaig...(where I saw DOLPHINS for the first time ever 🐬💘!!)..and then almost took a ferry to Inverie on the Knoydart Peninsula but as the weather was crap and I was tired, thought I’d be better off saving that adventure for another time 💔..so onwards I went, down along the old coast road to a lovely little campsite owned by a lady who makes cakes and has a little pony for a lawnmower ☺️. It was actually full by the time I arrived but she must have taken pity on an exhausted and dishevelled looking me, and let me squeeze in next to some caravans 🙏🏻. Then, of course, I dragged my carcass to the pub and had a beer, which had never tasted so damn good before🤤 before heading back and hitting the hay! The next day I caught the train back to my van (thank god it was still there with all four wheels) and I reluctantly drove home, sad my trip had finished but happy to have learnt and experienced so much (like never underestimate the scottish midge and Rannoch Moor 🤦🏼♀️😂!). So thank you once again Scotland, it’s been emosh!
Hideaway bay definitely lives up to its name. I had this entire beach to myself for at least an hour until a pleasant young photographer arrived and out did me with his skills. Anyway how bloody beautiful is this 🌴#whitsundays#hideawaybeach#exploretnq#travelandlife
hi sorry we have been mia 🌙 it’s been a little crazy. did i tell you guys we are moving in six days? which means the tiny house has to basically be done in six days...? yeah it’s been a little chaotic to say the least lol but last night we took a break and went to witness and celebrate two of our dearest friends as they promised to live side by side forever 💌 it was magical and beautiful and just what we needed
so here’s to the next six days where we work our little booties off to finish our dream house 🏡
Most people probably didn’t expect this when we said we were “downsizing” - we sure didn’t! We sold both of our cars on Friday and found this little nugget over the weekend. It’s even equipped with a towing package. Can’t wait to see it rolling behind ol Melody! 🤓 Maybe we’re crazy but our hearts say we’re on the right track. Three steps closer to living the dream!!! 🚌💨🎶 @mercedesbenz @smartcarusa
I have just spent the last 48hours with this amazing girl. I met Maite randomly as I was walking past a backpackers and she was booking a cruise to Whitehaven beach. I didn’t go in with any expectations to book a cruise that day but I saw her and she was also travelling solo, so it made sense that we should become friends and go on the cruise together. We haven’t stopped talking and laughing since the moment we met. Sometimes people come into your life at the exact right time to remind you to keep going down that path you’re on. Thank you sister for making me smile and adding yet another friend to my every growing list. Love you 💚 #cruisewhitsundays @maitesampablo
