This is Christmas
Avocado, prawns, and smoked salmon for Christmas brunch
Ham, leeks, and mash
Christmas day pudding, raspberry roulade
Koopa must have sniffed out the cheeseboard
Had a day in Shanghai on my way to Australia – the bullet train wasn’t quite as fast as Japan
Stopped off in Fu He Hui, ranked 76 in the worlds top restaurants. No idea what this is
Some banana ice cream and mixed fruits dessert
Landed in Melbourne, first port of call is Hunky Dory obvs
My view to welcome in 2016
Taking a phone call in paradise
There are many fish in Australia
Had to climb a wee bit to get this view but my word the Whitsundays are amazing
Another boring sunset
I tried to take a video of this turtle but accidentally didn’t press the button and it had left when I found out. Fortunately did get this snap
The highest point in the Whitsundays. 45 minute 5km hike I think.
Last known sighting of me playing live poker
Australia vs India ODI. Australia won after I left at half time because I was bored
Max very much enjoying the prospect of buying a watermelon
This is Gin and OJ I believe, consumed via syringe. Straight into the veins, of course.
The fountain outside the Melbourne Museum
Andy Murray presumably about to lose
First stop in Sydney was a Korean restaurant. Bibimbap + Mandu <3
Bondi Beach, Sydney
Got invited to Noma, couldn’t say no. Was very very good, but Copenhagen was better.
Went on an epic 15km hike with a couple of friends and it was absolutely worth the leeches and dead legs for this view
Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge
I saw “Beethoven Alive” in the Sydney Opera House. I had a nasty bout of what is colloquially known as the shits, ironically during movement number 2.
After Sydney I went to Agonda in India. This is my view of the beach. Every day there were lads playing cricket of football.
Lit a lantern and watched it float away. I can reveal that my wish has not come true.
Just like Kings Cross on a rainy day
Don’t be a pussy, this seems legit
Grabbing the low hanging fruit in Kochin, India.
Chinese fishing nets in Kochin. There is an absolutely incredible amount of litter.
Some cannon, no significance to me but looks cool and good content filler not that anyone is reading this
Went on a boat for a night and ate these bad boys
There was a street parade for what I can only assume was for my arrival. These elephants they’d manage to tame down nicely with several huge footcuffs and no doubt a bit of heavy beating in their youth.
