In October, I took Missbunny to my visit my family in Sydney, Australia.
She was over the moon and looked forward to the trip as it would be her longest plane ride so far, and everything in Australia is the other way around to, say, Japan or USA. October should be autumn season for most countries, but in Australia it's springtime.
Missbunny flew on business class the last long flight to Tokyo with Petite Bear-san. Even though this was an 8-hour flight to Sydney, Missbunny had to fly in economy but she's not complaining.
After the excursion, she was famished. Missbunny wanted to try the local specialities and she ordered the Aussie meat pie:
The rest of the journey is spent getting to know my family and basically soaking up the cool, sunny and beautiful weather of Sydney in spring. Check back here another time for Missbunny's Sylvanian travels.
October turned out to be quite a busy period for Missbunny as she travelled to Bali, Tokyo, and Sydney. Her first travel was to the lovely Bali island of Indonesia, and she had a relaxing time there with my friend (pity, it was not me who holidayed in Bali). I thought that Missbunny should take it easy for her first trip.
All photos in Bali are courtesy of SharonT. Thank you SharonT for helping Missbunny build on her travel experience.
Missbunny boarded one of the finest airlines in the world; certainly some people will say that it's Asia's best. Missbunny agreed that it's a fine carrier and her favorite, although she has never flown any other airlines before.
Missbunny didn't really do much in Bali. She just relaxed around the pool, and took a walk amongst the rice-paddy fields.
She got to taste the most popular drink in Indonesia: water by Aqua. Bottled Aquas are served everywhere - from restaurants to hotel rooms. They even have these bottled Aquas in the bathrooms.
The days passed quickly, and before she knew it, it's time to go back home.
Missbunny felt very refreshed in this trip, and can't wait to go to her next destination. She wondered what she will encounter in her subsequent journey.
On to her next trip (so soon! you ask). Missbunny went with another friend of mine to Tokyo. She tagged along this business trip as she always wanted to go to Japan and she decided that she just can't wait for me. The next photos are courtesy of MonicaK.
Missbunny had a Sylvanian travelling partner on this trip with Petite Bear-san. They took the same carrier that Missbunny flew on to Bali. She was sooooo excited that she was on this journey with Petite Bear-san.
Here is Missbunny with Petite Bear-san in the lobby of the Imperial Hotel, Tokyo. The hotel staff were a little astounded as my friend was taking photos of Missbunny and Petite Bear-san in the lobby. Nevermind.
Missbunny saw the shinkansen (bullet train) with her own eyes. She was very lucky to have this experience in Tokyo and thanked Petite Bear-san for bringing her along.
I wanted to take photos of Sylvanian Families in different countries, so I picked a Milk rabbit sister to represent my Sylvanian Families travels.
Originally, the traveller was a Periwinkle rabbit sister (with cupped hands) since she was one of the few second-hand figures that I initially adopted. Then I bought a JP Milk rabbit sister as a replacement, so some of the travel photos will have a scruffy-looking rabbit in them while others will have the newer milk rabbit. See whether you can spot the different rabbits :)
Meet Missbunny, who aspires to be a globetrotter:
Missbunny looked at the world map and thought, "so many places to go and so little time".
Since my daughter was born, I have been traveling less for work, and even less for holidays. How can I fulfill Missbunny's dream of being a world traveller?
I decided that Missbunny can accompany my colleagues (who also happen to be my good friends and love Sylvanian Families) on their travels. Stay tuned for her Sylvanian adventures very soon!
I like to experiment with photography and dabble in crafty things. I started collecting Sylvanian Families in 2009 and hope that someday my little daughter will enjoy playing and collecting Sylvanian Families as much as I do.
