The end of a holiday is often bitter-sweet. I’m both sad to be done travelling the weird and wonderful US, but so happy to be heading home to the comforts (and coffee) of Melbourne. Not to mention my little dog! I’m also one of those people who, although having a great time seeing new sights, feel like I’m missing out on all the action back home. Even the little things, like a day of gorgeous weather, or a casual catch-up with friends. I want to be there too! Hopeless I know.
If you’re also someone who hates missing out on anything – then today’s Friday Roundup is for you. All the week’s news from our specialty blogs, with some great events and giveaways to enjoy. See you soon Australia!
