2011 has been such a busy year for us. This year has also been the most time that Patrick and I have lived and worked in the same country, together. Most of the year involved travel – boat, planes, buses, taxis – different countries – different cities – different homes. We’re hoping 2012 sees us travelling and moving about a little less!  
January: We do the 22 hour trip to Taveuni from Suva, Fiji.
February: We have our marriage blessing in Taveuni, Fiji.
March: Work/Holiday to the Cook Islands.
April: We’ve now moved to Nadi, Fiji and this starts the first of many visits from Patrick’s dad!
May: We move to Suva, Fiji. Set up the flat and I decide to give up t-shirts for a year!
June: Luckily I’m in Fiji for my little sister’s 22nd birthday. Sadly, Patrick is in Australia (and I’m in Fiji) for our first wedding anniversary. He sends me all over the city collecting my presents, including a four hour visit to the spa!
 July: In Levuka, Fiji. My first visit to Patrick’s high school.
 August: Suva, Fiji. Enchanted is one of our favourite cafes and I organised Patrick’s birthday dinner there, with friends and family.
September: Canberra, Australia. Finally living under the same roof and working in the same building! Lets keep it that way husband!
 October: Melbourne, Australia. We go to the Alola Australia dinner and finally meet all the wonderful people I’ve been working with.   
November: Fleeting trip to Sydney, Australia.
December: Dili, Timor Leste. I made this dream of mine come true. I couldn’t be happier!

I hope 2011 was a wonderful year for you all, and here’s to an amazing 2012!

Much love,

    Wow, what a year you've had! If I had to be away from my boyfriend for so long (and so sporadically) I'd lose it. Happy New Year! Hopefully the two of you will stay put.
