Tag Archives: Down Under

Summery Christmas and tropical holiday

The cicadas are buzzing, cherries are ripening, the rellies are coming and for us the temperature is climbing as well.

In case you’re wondering what Santa gets up to Down Under, Aldi supermarket has a perfect ad so you don’t need to wonder anymore.

How cool is that?

While other parts of the world are freezing, we are sweating in Australia. Of course, its summer here and we have a hot Santa in the waves.

So next time if you feel like some sun, sand and sea, you know where to come for your Christmas vacation.

If you haven’t already, please read my letter to Santa and I hope you can help Santa for me  🙂

I hope preparation for the celebration is going well for you all. We will be having ours on the ship so it will be a very different Christmas for us this year.

In few hours, we will be boarding our ship to start our holiday so see you all next year.

Wishing you all Merry Christmas and A very happy new year!!!
