Hey there APJ.

As most of you know I spent a week in Scotland recently.   I have wanted to go my whole life and finally got it together to organise a trip.  Well, we booked  flights and our beyond dear friend Kirk, who has cropped up in my posts over the years did the organising.  We just had to get there.   He would be waiting at the airport with a car.  Our flight was from Munich to Edinburgh, so what better way to start the trip than to sleepover in Munich and go to the Oktoberfest?

Hey there APJ Crew,

WOW! Mongolia, South Korea and home. What a sensational wrap up to nearly six weeks of travel. Jin really outdid himself as Cruise Director, we saw more than I dreamed possible. The whole adventure was planned perfectly, we also had a few very lucky breaks and helpful friends along the way.

We were so busy and there was zero sit time so almost the whole week was blogged from the Asiana Lounge at Seoul Incheon Airport on Friday evening while waiting for my plane. VERY relaxing.

What’s Your Insta Handle?

Hey Crew,

It’s the 5th Tuesday so I’m filling the gap. Val had a fabulous idea. Let’s find out each others INSTAGRAM handle so we can follow each others lives visually. It’s not nearly so intrusive as FB and much more sharing that Twitter. I reckon the idea is good.

What’s Your Insta Handle?

I need to give you fair warning though. My Insta is a jumble of friends, food, fun and finally fragrance. For some reason it’s the place that gets the biggest hodge lodge. So if you’re looking for a page that is frafg only then you will probably want to bypass mine.

Go check it out if you like.

Now tell us yours so we can all follow along.

SOTD 13.8 – 19.8.2018

Hi APJ,

A SOTD (Scent Of The Day) thread is a really good conversation generator. The idea is you’ll chime in through the week with whatever scent you are wearing. You don’t need to be super knowledgable, have high faluting tastes or be a published author to comment. Just tell us what fragrance you’re wearing, smelling, buying etc. and how it makes you feel and/or anything else about it that tickles your fancy.

You can also comment on everyone else choices too. It’s great to tell someone how much you love their choice, ask for more info about it, the house or perfumer. There’s someone here from around the world 24/7 and perfume people love to chat.
