Home again

We've been home from Asia for a week now. It was the most wonderful trip - we visited a really good mix of places (beaches, mountains, jungle and huge cities) and had the perfect amount of time in each place. It was warm everywhere (a little too hot in some places - 38°c in China!), didn't rain much and we didn't have many travel problems or delays.

My Felt and Discover Me shops are back online and I'm already getting ready for my next market.

Here's a few photos of the highlights of our holiday:

1. Dusky Leaf Monkey on our balcony at Burau Bay
2. The view of the resort from the top of the World's steepest cable car
3. Cocktails on the beach, yes please!
4. A pretty lantern where we had dinner one evening
5. On top of Lasah, the Asiatic Elephant
6. Fish spa time! The weirdest feeling ever...
