    D is for Darwin, a small city in the north of Australia, more like a big country town with warm or some may say hot weather, lush mangoes, waterfront, greenery,

    Matchy, I also caught my first fish in a place starting with D, but not Darwin.

    Golders Green - an interesting London suburb I remember getting lost in. I don't remember much about it unfortunately, London was depressing, dreary but elegant.

    O is for Oakleigh, a suburb in south eastern Melbourne. When I lived nearby, Oakleigh was vibrant with the Greek, Italian community in food. Used to get off here to go to Chadstone, a shopping centre that was pretty quiet at the time....or to my CSV compulsory appointments, when I look back now those social workers weren’t the least bit interested in me.

    S is for Soulac Sur Mer, in eastern France...a beautiful seaside village with terracotta houses, sandy white beaches, jazz dances from the 1920’s. Visited here from Pauillac, via the train through some picturesque vineyards and beautiful sunsets in swamps, off the beaten path but worth every minute.

    B is for Byron Bay

    I love the vibe there.
    I remember going to a hairdresser there that was meant to open at 10am, I was there at 11am and they were still closed, sign on the window saying they were meditating. I like how nothing is rigid there, ppl are relaxed, and time seems to flow, rather than march.
