Thanks to the help of good friend & amazing photographer Rob Palmer, we had a fun photo shoot the other day and well, lets just say we are all very much looking forward to some Swedish sun and maybe even British if we are lucky ! Hoppo reckons I'm looking so white he needs to wear sunglasses just to look at me. Thanks Hop ! Not even the saturation bevel in photoshop could tan our skin a little. On the up side, at least we should blend right in once we arrive in London on the 4th of July :)
One thing I'm looking forward to when sight seeing in the UK is Buckingham Palace. Why you ask? Well there's a couple of reasons. One is because I'm named after Prince Andrew. My mother is quite a fan of the royal family and thought I was destined to be a prince. (yeah right mum) The other is a little more special, and it has a lot to do with the photo below.
This photo is the only real memory i have of my grandfather Thomas Kenneth Morrison. He was Rear Admiral of the Royal Australian Navy and received the CBE (Commander of the Military Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) by Queen Elizabeth when she came to Australia in 1963. He was given the CBE in recognition of his long and distinguished service.
I was only 4 years old when he passed away so unfortunately I never really got to know him as well as I'd liked, but my mum has told me some pretty cool stories and I'm very honoured to be in his bloodline.
In other news, we are stoked to have teamed up with the crew from Travelsim. These guys offer great call rates and an excellent service. which is awesome news for Maxi ! This means his mum can call him any time she thinks her pride and joy is getting up to mischief. It also means we will be able to stay in close contact with the gang at Owl Marketing as we start to lock in more dates for the UK leg.
Thanks for coming back and I hope to see you all soon :)
