Yum cha has always been a favourite of mine so when we decided to spend Sunday at Darling Harbour I suggested we start off our explorations with a lazy lunch in China Town.

We had a good meal nevertheless and signed off with my favourite….mango pancakes.

Giving up control doesn’t come easy to me…but it is something I have tried to do recently…and am even beginning to enjoy not having to be responsible for everything
Being spontaneous adds an extra layer of uncertainty and excitement because the unknown can often lead you down roads that are undiscovered…! I love having an element of spontaneity when travelling but today…I let go…and let my camera do the talking…here’s what I shot..
