First, lots of holidays. We ended up going away at least once every month, and that was awesome. Simon has access to some great baches through his work, and we made good use of them.
These are the tame eels over at Bencarri. You tap the water with a stick and they swim over to say hi. It's creepy, but at the same time, charming.
And here is Collingwood, it's one of my very favourite places. We went here 3 times this year.
