Hello beautiful readers, it’s no longer Christmas Day here and considering I’m so far from home, I had a great day. It started with a 5k run to the beach, which despite being cooler was still pretty busy. It was fascinating seeing people opening presents on the sand with surfers on the waves. Not my usual December 25th!

Thankfully my extended family in Sydney allowed me to stay overnight with them. It was fun watching their two young kids open presents, it reminded me of what it was like to be a kid in the festive season. My favourite Christmas present has to be a Nintendo 64 with Goldeneye… I’ll never forget unwrapping that present… I think in ’97. Ah, 20th century gaming, the nostalgia!

Anyways, I hope all of my readers and followers had a fantastic Christmas, and if it is still Christmas where you are, enjoy it! If you don’t celebrate it, have fun doing whatever you are doing. I also hope you have the best start to the new year, I will aim to blog as much as I have been and post some exciting updates throughout the year. 

What did you all get from Santa? I’m about to find out myself as I have waited to speak to my family in the UK over Skype whilst I unwrap.

Happy holidays and thanks for all the support you guys have shown me!

Sam

  1. Christmas is just finishing up here in American Samoa. I gave myself an online blogging course for Christmas. I can’t wait to see what I can do in 2018! Manuia le Kerisimasi!

    1. Merry Christmas! It’s nice to meet someone from American Samoa 🙂 does this mean that blogging will be a rather big part of your 2018? I hope so 🙂

      1. it is a beautiful city, it was the first capital of Italy from 1860 to 1946, the ancient houses are of Baroque style. Unfortunately now there are few Turinese, but many immigrants of various nationalities. This fact is not lived very well. sorry for my english, I translate with Google. Ciao Sam.

      2. It really depends on how you view the immigration. Would you prefer natives, or prefer that your city was seen as a place to live from those outside? I know Italians in Australia that aren’t for the immigration, and I can assure you a similar feeling is shared in the UK.

      3. I am in favor of immigration, but it is very difficult as in every part of the world, I think. I would like to live with less aggressive, less violent people. I know it’s a dream. Do you live in Australia?

      4. I am also in favour of immigration, I can only imagine what it could be like to live in many nations that people want to leave. There are good arguments both for and against immigration in my opinion, I would love it to be possible and compatible for everyone, however that isn’t going to happen any time soon!
        I am from the UK but I am taking a year out to travel Australia 🙂
