Hello world, it's me, I'm still here!

Oops, where does the time go? Last time I wrote, I was relaxing on the beach in Greece without a care in the world. Now, I'm sitting at my desk in Melbourne, the rain pattering on the window beside me and deadlines piling up alarmingly all around, with mediteranean beaches a long-gone dream. In between then and now there's been 39 degree days in Athens, a final weekend in Paris, afternoon tea in London, mini-breaks in the english countryside, and an excruciating 22 hour flight which landed me back in this strange country sometimes referred to as home.

I'm still getting used to the idea of not living in Paris anymore (I wont say it doesn't hurt), but there are upsides to being back in Australia - notably not having to pre-plan scripts before attempting any kind of social interaction. (Everyone here speaks english! What a revelation!) I do miss my french friends though, and strolling down the Boulevard Saint-Germain, and catching glimpses of the Seine every day. Actually, don't get me started...

Paris, tu me manques.

P.S. I took this polaroid in Santorini - I think it's completely impossible to take a photo of that place that isn't beautiful. More to come!
