Gained a bit of weight on this trup...

No not me (although that is a distinct possibility with the amount of wonderfully delicious food and drink I've been scarfing down - including one final banana smoothie at the airport (thanks K for the idea)).

My baggage. It kept growing like topsy. Luckily I stumbled across a beautiful vintage suitcase at the Strathmore op shop for a whopping $3. It's now very very full. As is my original suitcase. And my emergency bag I always bring just in case. I'm starting to think I might have to join Apron Thrift Girl's
$99 Thrift Challenge after all.

But what do you expect when you manage to squeeze in 30 second hand, op and junque shops in 6 days? The Shopping Sherpa has been a busy wee bee and has hatched some wild and crazy plans which may be shared if and when they come to fruition.

Meanwhile, if you happen to be at Sydney airport international arrivals baggage carousel area late this afternoon and spot a passing parade of buzz bars, milk bottle lollies, chocolate fish and mysterious parcels wrapped in bubblewrap on the conveyor belt - don't panic, you've not stumbled into some modern day version of
Bruce Forsyth's Generation Game, it's just the catches and luggage straps on my vintage suitcase didn't hold up.

Pictures soon, I promise (assuming my 40 kilos of luggage doesn't ground the Sydney - Canberra leg of my journey!)
