We visited Grand Palace today. With all the glittering glass and gold. With all the crowds and glory.
Yet still the memory of Angkor Wat remains. Silent and written with stone.
“Sometimes glass glitters more than diamonds because it has more to prove.” ― Terry Pratchett, The Truth.

Well tomorrow we wrap on an Aussie staple.. For the past 26years @sydneyweekender has showcased some of the best restaurants, destinations, adventures businesses and things to do on your weekend...We have offered a platform for businesses and destinations who wouldn't ordinarily get the chance to show what they have to the country...
For me it has been the wildest ride.. I have swum with dolphins, ridden Harley Davidsons, tasted the best food, seen snow for the first time, dressed up in wild costumes and met some of the greatest people..
When it comes to the people I work with... Well they are the most supportive, generous, humble, kind hearted people in the industry...
Thanks to @al_dungey for giving me a chance to step outside my comfort zone.. To Mike for always always encouraging us... @jen_forsyth2001 on every level you are beyond words ❤❤ and to each and every crew member and presenter involved take a bow and be proud of who you are and what you did...
. @sydneyweekender thanks for the memories #travel lifestyle #travelreporter#food#adrenilin#endofanera#thatsawrap#weekend#getaway#sad#lucky
Things are not what they seem, nor are they otherwise.

Getaway I love you. This is not an example of a messy lunch table, but an office who loves each other. Our annual Chrissy catch up is always full of smiles as Bec asks ‘so, where do you wanna go?’ And we wonder how we can still be on air whilst running on the smell of an oily rag? It’s good to be employed! 2020, 29th year on air, here we come!
“Raccolse tutto il dolore e ciò che gli restava della sua forza e dell'orgoglio da tanto tempo sopito e lo pose contro l'agonia del pesce e il pesce si accostò al suo fianco e nuotò con garbo sul fianco sfiorando quasi col rostro il fasciame della barca e si avviò a oltrepassarla, lungo, profondo, largo, argenteo e striato di viola e interminabile nell'acqua.”
- Il vecchio e il mare, E. Hemingway
Grateful for seeing these marvels of Nature, while they are still here. Sad to see how even Australia’s climate change has a huge impact on New Zealand’s Fiordland. Thankful for Real Journeys to take me along and explain what is happening.

A final jump for joy from the glaciers, that’s a wrap from the end of the world, Chilean Patagonia. Did you enjoy the trip? I’ll admit I’d not heard about the Chilean Fjords before coming here and now wonder ‘why isn’t everyone coming here?’ I can’t stop thinking about the bravery of those Magellanic penguins travelling all the way from a Brazil to here, imagine out swimming an Orca. The courage of the sailors discovering these mysterious worlds with their terrifying seas, to source us spices, food and clothing. What about Darwin and his Theory of Evolution; the hardworking locals; don’t ever call a Chilean woman lazy and never say no to a potato! Many of you will know I’m here during ‘an exciting time’ for Chile as they are going through ‘a manifestation’. I won’t get into the politics, apart from the fact this isn’t political, they hate both the left and right. But it won’t help a mother feed her children and tourism dollars certainly will. So, aside from seeing graffiti and 2 quiet, walking, street demonstrations, we were totally safe. I wouldn’t advise you otherwise. We loved every moment. If you’ve made it this far into my long Insta chat, you may like to know that as I wrap 2019 with Getaway, Bec from the office just texted to book me for my first trip in 2020, making it my 24th year sharing the world with you on the Tele. Thankyou for travelling with me and thankyou to the talented Getaway team who make it all possible. To steal a line from Simon Townsend, who created the first show I worked for (initially as the Researcher, finally as the Host) ‘The World Really is Wonderful.’ Count your blessings and go out and enjoy it.

Well Dear Traveller, from the Cup to the Chilean Fjords, are you ready for me to take you on the last Getaway shoot for the year? I’ve swapped the pretty hat for the practical Akubra and way too much luggage (standard). C’mon, gear up, I’ll see you soon in Peru! #9getaway@getaway@scenic_au#travelreporter@mesdemoisellesparis#h &bfashiondistributors
