Hey friends, I just wanted to check in and let yinz know that I made it to Sydney alright - I've been here for a week and I had a really uneventful trip over. Everything went smoothly, I sat near friendly, chatty people on each flight, and I was in New Zealand for the first time! I can't tell you how happy I am to be back in Australia - its home to me now, really. I just feel so much better here, and I'm already having a pretty good time, just chilling by our pool or heading to the shops. Anyway, sorry I haven't gotten back to the blog sooner, but between jetlag, a sinus infection and a minor technical problem, it was a little bit of a struggle, but we're back on track and I'm working on posts again!
To keep this post from being entirely pointless, I wanted to share one of my personal packing hacks that I haven't really seen anyone else mention - I'm sure I'm not the inventor of this brilliant little idea, but it popped into my head a couple of years ago and figured it was worth sharing if any of you travel often and hate getting your necklaces tangled. What is this little trick? Simply grab a foam hair roller and wrap your dainty little necklaces around them, and snap them shut to secure. I've been using this technique for about three years now - and be it a two day pop across Pennsylvania, or a months long journey to the other side of the world, I've never had a single necklace tangle or break.
