Some overwhelming typography, but itdoesn't make these words any less worthwhile!
Love Ira Glass. Close the gap.

|This couple asked for a poem about their 10 years of marriage.|
|I actually really really like it.|
|The private beach area at Fontainebleau - we didn't see Puff Daddy, but this view was enough for me. I couldn't get enough of the water, so clear and blue.|
|Shopping in the up and coming Design District - some very cool shop fronts on a wide street.|
|Spicy fries! This is the beginning of one of my most favourite afternoons there, sitting in the sun at Southstreet with a cocktail jug and Southern style fried chicken still to come.|
|Outside the Wynwood Walls, the Wynwood warehouse district was the most sincere neighborhood I came across in Miami - think a strong Cuban community, open air bars and an impressive span of street art.|
|The Empire State Building from the Top of the Rock.|
|Where it's always daytime in Italy.|
|China Lane - the delicious, younger CBD sister of China Doll which C met me for lunch at - yes, it's in that birdcage alley, but the artwork actually adds to the ambiance. Order the shrimp San Choy Bau.|
|A most delightful belated birthday dinner with my traditional duo at Mejico, right next door to Jamie's Italian. They make the guacamole for you fresh on the spot (I'm talkin' someone will actually cut and scoop and mash that avocado in front of you and ask you if you want pistachos in with it too - say yes!)|
|Bizarrely this looks like some kind of creepy RSL but it's in fact The Rook - the perfect, hidden rooftop bar in the city in that it's actually indoors (hard to explain, but the roof is see through in parts). It's annoyingly owned by the Cargo crew, but you have to give props for when an empire gets it right - and this was loads of fun!|
|My most favourite new place of all - Monopole, which was conveniently stumbling distance from home. C managed to get us late reservations on a Saturday, and we were seated even later, but they entirely made up for it with some of the best service I've had in Sydney - delicious canapes coming out to us with their apologies for the wait, and the best wine recommendations. Love!|
|Finally, while not that new at all I really wanted to go to The Apollo as I still hadn't tried it. I'd heard mixed reviews, but I really loved it! C was on a health kick, so he didn't let me order the baked cheese (*shakes fist*) but the sardines, octopus and salads were no less enjoyable, and super flavoursome.|
|Hiking up Cradle Mountain, the view back onto the incredible Dove Lake - incredible even in the overcast weather.|
|I was really fascinated by this black moss that I saw everywhere - I feel like there were so many plants I hadn't seen before there, it was amazing!|
|Yeah that's right - my most favourite Australian animal in the wild! He was just foraging around, looking for snack I presume. The sad part is though that he was probably blind as he was out during the day (wombats are nocturnal), or maybe he was just up and about for a midnight snack - who knows.|
|Ploughman's lunch - aka my fantasy.|
|Popping into some beautiful vineyards on drive back to the airport. This was Goaty Hill who see their wines get served up at Toko. Took home a couple of delicious bottles of Pino Gris in our suitcases.|
