I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...

Why is it that we always want the opposite of what we have? In winter we dream of basking on white sand beaches while in summer we want to escape the heat and head for cooler climates... I'm taking some time out from blogging to spend a warm summery Christmas with family in Australia (as I dream of Munich's Christmas markets, mulled wine by a fireplace in Switzerland somewhere, walks in the snow...), before returning to Dubai for a warm winter's New Year's Eve, where, as bizarre as it sounds, we could experience a snow-white winter wonderland at Ski Dubai (pictured) if we wanted. But that's a whole other blog and for now family beckons. I'll blog again in early 2008. Happy New Year!

Lara, I hope Australia with family was lovely. Now Australia is someplace that I have always wanted to go. One day, one day....!

That is soo true... that we want the opposite of what we have. In the winter, I often find myself longing to beaches and warmer weather and in the summer I sometimes wish I was in the Alps skiing or spending time at another wintry place.

Felicia, Anne & Maryam - hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & New Year! We had a really lovely time with family in Australia, but gosh it already seems so long ago; we've been working so hard ever since. Thanks for continuing to check in! I'm back blogging now, I hope!

Erica - but why do you think this is? That's what really gets me. I guess it's like anything, isn't it? But travel is the ultimate dream for many - you'd think we'd be happy anywhere we went!
