Land of the Rising Sun

Apologies for the radio silence, I've been literally running to meet deadlines before I fly to Japan tomorrow.

It's been a while since I visited this fascinating country, so I'm really looking forward to reacquainting myself with Tokyo and Kyoto.

See you on the other side.

Yes, I know I've been back a month but I have literally been running since I returned. Deadlines have been coming so thick and fast, my brain is literally leaking out of my ear.

But here is visual evidence that I was indeed in Portugal's second city last month and cruising along the Duoro (and not, as some wag on Instagram suggested, at home in Welly wearing sweatpants, eating takeout and posting travel images ripped from the web).

I'm still writing the stories from this leg of the media trip but in the meantime, here are some visuals of this gorgeous city which is now my BFF.

Rock the Casbah

The first story from my recent Morocco media trip is published in today's Sunday Star Times (here's a link to the online version).

And yes, you're probably going to have that Clash song velcroed to your brain stem for the rest of the day too. You're welcome.

Are women really unhappier than men?

Yes, yes the Portugal pics are coming...but in the meantime, here's a story I did in Saturday's Canvas Magazine, about unhappy women (click here to read).

Visual evidence I was in Morocco

No need to send out a search party, here I am!

Yes it's been more than a week since I got back from the Emirates/On the Go/CroisiEurope media trip to Morocco and Portugal, but as well as battling jet-lag (even though Emirates is kind to journos and put me in Business Class, the time zone changes still mess with your head), I've been literally running from one deadline to the next since I got home.

But here's some of what I did and saw in Morocco...and once I get around to writing the stories, I will publish/link to them here so you can read all about this fabulous trip.

Morocco and Portugal, here I come!

In a few hours I will get on a big silver bird to fly to Auckland and then after a few hours of fannying about at Auckland Airport, will do the first 17 hour leg to Dubai where I'll have a shower (thank you, god of airport lounges) and then a couple of hours later do the 8.5 hour schlep to Casablanca

I'll be doing a seven night tour of Morocco for a story and then flying to Porto for a five night river cruise, also for a story. Thank you Emirates Airlines for taking pity on a poor journalist and bumping me up to business class. I truly heart you.

See you on the other side.
