Of all the places I’ve celebrated my birthday, my birthday three years ago would definitely rate as the most unique. I was in Libya. Not somewhere that I would have ever thought I would be celebrating my birthday. It was a wonderful day and certainly a birthday that I will never forget.
I got to see impressive Greek ruins of L’Atrun and Apollonia on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea which was a brilliant turquoise blue whilst spending the day with new friends on tour. Dinner was at a traditional Libyan restaurant in the town of Al Bayda with my tour leader surprising me with a delicious chocolate cake and being given a present from my friends on the tour group of yummy Libyan chocolates.

2 years ago I celebrated my birthday back in Australia. Atef and I had made the trip back home so that he could met all my friends and family and I spent a lovely day having lunch at the Bendigo Art Gallery with my Mum, Dad, Atef and my Grandma.
Last year my birthday was my first as a mum. A quiet day with Atef and Alia.
