Location: London - Wembley, UK

On Sunday night, 5 of us girls headed to Wembley Arena to watch Beyonce perform in concert! I would have to say that it was probably the best concert i have been to, her singing and dancing for over 2 hrs was amazing!! She is definately UNBELIEVABLE, so so so hot too!! I think we are all totally in love with her now!! haha

Location: Merrakech, Atlas mtns & Sahara, Morocco

Hi all!!
Well we have just returned back from an adventure and a half to North Africa! Morocco is amazing, I was quite clueless heading there as i didn't know too much about what we were doing and seeing as a group and what the lifestyle was going to be like there either. In total there was 8 of us, 7 girls and 1 boy (Liam), poor boy!!

We landed in one of the most chaotic places i have ever seen, Merrakech! It was amazing, we were swamped by donkeys, mopeds, horse and carriages and taxis (there forms of transport) as we entered the city centre. I have never seen a place so back in time, it reminded me of a different century! The things that stuck out the most was the dust/pollution, the kids swarming us trying anything they can to get money off us, they dont seem to really go to school, and the thousands of feral skinny cats wandering the streets. We were in Merrakech for 2 nights and we stayed at beautiful riads (renovated houses), headed into the markets and bartered with the confrontational, gross moroccan men for cheaps food and goods. Being in there was an experience in itself as there was snake charmers, monkeys in cages (sad) and basically just crazy things everywhere, we definately had to be on our toes walking through there!

For the other part of the trip we headed in our own van touring through the famous breathtaking atlas mountains, gauges and small farming villages where they have only had electricity for 5 years!!! It definately is hard to comprehend how they live!!

The most memorable of the trip was camping in the Sahara Desert! I definately wasn't expecting that, we treked out on camels for 2 hours into the Sahara with one of the local nomad men (he was even born out there and grew up there with his family). Surrounding our campsite for the night, where we stayed with the locals was huge mountainous sand dunes which we climbed to watch the sunset! That was definately an achievement to reach the top of that!

All in all, this trip was an amazing adventure which i recommend to anyone to see!!! Hope you all enjoy the photos!!

Location: Prague, Czech Republic

For the first weekend in March I headed to Prague for a girls weekend away. There was Renee, Lilly, Moony (Yoonjin) and Anita and I. We left on Friday arriving in Prague at around 10 and headed for our first taste of the Czech food. From that night on we were 'sold' that the food was a must have every meal from then on. The food there is so so cheap and the portion sizes are massive too! By Sunday lunch i was definately feeling the potato and bacon dumplings and the different meat varieties that i indulged in throughout the weekend. Our last meal outing was definately the best and most memorable as we ate at a traditional medievil theme and 'Moonjin' and I ate a Pork knuckle between us!!!! YUUUMMMYYY

The actual city of Prague is really pretty, the street are mostly coblestone and the buildings are old and painted pretty colours. The actual people there are not too friendly as we found out walking through the markets and testing their combs and other items offered for sale!

The nightlife is pretty fun as we started at a cocktail bar having a few dangerous shots and cocktails. From there we headed to now my favourite nightclub - it has 5 or 6 levels each which a different theme! Very Cool!

Prague is definately on the agenda to head back again in Summer!!

Hi Talya,
Well it's News Years Eve, I trust you all have a really great one and even as much excitement for 2008. Look forward to hearing how the New York Chrissy experience was. Had a Chrissy drink or two with Dad, Mum and Brandt - good to see them all and I'm sure was some good Clifford hospitality over Xmas. We were thinking of you and the fun New York would hold.
Luv for now
Happy New Year
Barb XXXX (not thats not beer)

Hi Talya
Thanks for the update at Brighton... a bit different to the beach at Burleigh hey!
Obvious still many places to visit, ales to consume and good times to be had. Make sure you leave a few pubs to take your Dad to on his visit sooooooon...they seem to be really looking forward to their trip. I'm worried he may want to stay..or perhaps he's over that 30 year longing by now!!
I know they will enjoy catching up with you and having a great time.
Take care and regards to Liam.
Luv
Barb
