Since everyone down this end of the world is about to kick off into their summer holidays, a couple more links to soundtrack the funtimes ahead.

Holiday Wrap

So I am back.
Not the most exciting feeling to have but its nice to be home after living in a suitcase for 5 weeks.
So our european adventure started in Berlin, 5 days or so of hanging out in `cool berlin’. The weather was a touch average but we managed to find enough stuff to occupy us, half litre beers being 1 of them.
