It has been very strange to be away from computers and keyboards for the past few days, and I am feeling somewhat like a recovering addict. However, if I don't give you an update you're sure not to forgive me. At present I am touring around Houston town, taking in all the sites, which for me means lots of design, architecture and of course, all the shopping a girl could want. That last bit is a little bitter sweet as our Australian dollar is currently experiencing what I believe to be the greatest drop in its history. Oh well, I still can't miss this opportunity, so onwards ho.

Oddly enough, my photo taking has been few and far between. I've been collecting experiences in a more cerebral way, and keeping a journal as I go. This is proving to be a very thought provoking excercise and giving me some excellent material for future posts. So alas, I probably won't have much in the way of photos until my return, as I also came away sans laptop to avoid the trap of staying online rather than just getting out there.
I spent yesterday in The Heights of Houston, and area of concentrated vintage and collectable shopping. Although much of the vintage was more of a 1970's or second hand nature, (you know my definition of vintage) I did find some absolute gems amongst this. There will be complete reviews forthcoming on my return, as you'll be delighted to discover that some of these stores even sell online! But, after many many shopping hours, and a girlfriend with the patience of a Saint (and a gameboy to keep her entertained) I have a haul of biblical proportions to bring home and lots of photos to take for you.
Sadly, this will have to be a short post, as I am on borrowed technology with which I am not all too familiar (Mac?) and there is much relaxing and living to do. So until next time, I'll keep on writing it all in my little book, and creating a wonderous world with which to present you on my return.
