    All I want for Christmas is small, smiley Hannah, in a bright blue sack.

    Hope you’re feeling not-too-horribly travelsick. At least you get to keep in touch and *~*~*~explore the world*~*~*~ and relive your own travel experiences online and through your blog. Thank Christ for the internet, eh?

    [failing that, give me 768346834 months to get my savings restored and let’s blow this joint for greener, travelly-er pastures!!! I’m itching for it]

    hahahhh! That is so cute!

    And those truffles are amazing looking.

    Ho ho ho, YOU’RE wordy? YOU? Then what am I? I’m like an event horizon of prose – once a word or sentence comes near enough to me it will never escape my blog post.

    Your relatives in Hobart sent you chocolate from the Gold Coast? *eyebrow raise* At least half those chocolates are from Mayfield Chocolates which originally started on the Gold Coast and now have a fair few vendors all over the place (Brisbane in particular, seemingly). I know most of their chocolates off-by-heart, my favourite being that oblong one with the orange marbling – JAFFA LATTE! There are a few in that box from some other source – don’t know the business name but I know where to buy them, and they have awesome ones like agave cactus or pomegranate truffle. Oh lord, so good, so gooood.

    I’ve seen that spice cream around the place a fair bit but I’ve never tried it. Is it worth the investment? Or should I just save up my scholarship dollars for, say, an ice cream machine?

    And that Japanese meal… ohh mannn. It looks incredible. I need to go to Japan so badly.

    Is that scaffolding in the middle of the leaning tower? How do they do that? And who has to work up there?

    That photo of four year old Hannah is too cute. You still have the same grin!

  5. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha that pic of you is SO adorable! OK I want a kid like that please! 😀

    And that is a ginormous meal-and Japan isn’t really the place for ginormous meals!

    hmmm I am beginning to think parents give children dolls because the alternative is dragging their mum around with their hair

    I thought the pic of the food was shoes and grapes in the one display and I was ready to be impressed at the eclectic nature of the shop

    As for your scholarship – surely you need to apply for another scholarship for a fact finding chocolate trip – to support your PhD! Hope the post gave your travel bug the food it needed. I was once told that the amount of time you are away on holiday is the amount of time that you take to recover from the holiday – maybe that is your problem.

    oooh I love these pics!
    We were amazed at just how tiny Pisa was – we expected to need to spend at least a whole day there but I think we covered it in a few hours!

    Haha, such a cute pic! Ben’s niece hates the sun too. Whenever she is in the sun she covers her eyes and says “sun no” or “sun go away”! she is two. she’s pretty cool.
    I love travel posts, keep them coming 🙂

    Hehehe, this post is so awesome! Where to begin?! Love it 🙂

  10. Kath Lockett

    Love the last pic!

    Oh and those Tasmanian truffles? At least HALF of them are from Chocolatier, right here in West Heidelberg, Melbourne 🙂

  11. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    Haha, I can’t stop looking at that photo of you! Well, except to go back and look at that meal from Japan again, but then back to you very quickly, honest. PLEASE tell me someone still has that jumper and you can do a then&now photo comparison. \\

    Maybe we could join forces somehow and buy super expensive ice cream in bulk to be able to afford it? Somehow? You could probably just sell baby photos of yourself to nice old ladies though, I’m sure they’d be willing to pay good money for such cuteness (if you photoshop out the doll cruelty)

  12. whisperinggums

    I do indeed still have that jumper…in fact I was wearing it the other day. But, do we have the doll? That is the question.

  13. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I found Pisa to be pretty underwhelming, too.
    But those truffles are NOT! Yum city! Me want!
    Which reminds me, I meant to tell you to tell your housemate to tell her father he should check out Christopher Elbow while he’s in KC. I know I’m no choco-connoisseur , but every C.E. chocolate I’ve tried has been exquisite.

    And oh my gosh I just want to hug and squeeze and snuggle baby-you, AWW!

    Dear Hannah,

    At least I’m tax free.

    Your PhD scholarship

    (I was asked to pass that message along, so I felt obliged!)

  15. penny aka jeroxie

    I’ve been to Pisa on a very hot summer day and burnt my toes… all red and …..ughhh

  16. Anna Johnston

    You were a cutie patootie when you were a little youngun huh 🙂 Mmmm, Tower of Pisa even looks a bit ordinary in that light huh.

  17. Agnes

    Why was the ice cream “Asian” inspired if it was chilli and chocolate?? And did you eat all those truffles in one go? :p
