Well for those of you who have been hanging out for your daily dose from the Birdcage…..(hopefully there are a couple!!) then I can now say, all for a little bit of jet lag ( so please excuse any typo’s) the bird is back!!!

Where have I been?? Well I have a little confession to make, there are some who are addicted to fine handbags and the latest fashions, others who are addicted to coffee or “Seinfeld”.  Well my name is Emma and I am addicted to “Travel”!!

It is not to say that I am not into fashion, to the contrary I love clothes shopping, but if someone where to give me choice of a Hermes Handbag or a trip to  new part of the globe…. well I am afraid I would have to pull out my battered old case and get on that plane!! Unfortunately this was not a choice in this particular instance, and I rather think that when the credit card bills start rolling in the Hermes bag may have been the cheaper option, but the beauty of travel (this is where I get all philosophical) is that so much more comes from it influences, styles, trends, cultures and experiences that you can hold forever! …. Ultimately the best thing is that I can re live it all through my blog… yay! So my friends… for the next few weeks I will be inflicting you with my travels (Birdcage style) to London, Devon, Sicily, Sardina and Rome…..  Here is a little taster…..

one caveat I will put in is that a few of my jeans are a little tight around the waist  – so there will be a little bit on the food indulgence too – well I was in Italy!!!

 oh….and OK when in Rome one must do what the Romans do…so whilst I did visit the Pope…. although he was a little tied up…. and I did venture into the world of the Gladiator….. it would have been a little rude not to do a “ickle” bit of shopping now would it not!!!

Good to be back….. On with the colourful journey!!!

P.S Hermes… any bags you happen to not want will be greatly accepted…..

    Welcome back! Sounds like you had a fantastic time – can’t wait to hear more about it. And those pics are gorgeous – the two of Sicily and Sardinia could be postcards. Looking forward to the next instalments! 🙂

      Thank you Sparks! I certainly did have a fab time and it is V depressing being back in the cold and rain!! I certainly wish I could still be back in Sicily and Sardinia swimming in that crystal clear sea!!! 🙂

    Hey BCD! I want to be IN the Costa Smerelda, Sardinia image. How gorgeous is that? And, what do you mean the Pope was a little tied up? Is there something you’re not telling us…?

    We missed you! So glad you’re back in blog-land. PHEW! 🙂

      I took the Pope Cake and everything but he was a little busy doing Pope stuff!!!

      Every time I look at that Sardinian Picture I want to be back there, especially given the weather we are having in Sydney…. I am sure someone told me that Sydney was hot and sunny all year round… which is why I left Blighty!!! 🙂 Good to be back to though!!
