Capital times with 500 humans

An apple a day

Well, I feel it's official now with itineraries in hand and flight details confirmed.  The bags are packed and we're leaving the Apple Isle tomorrow for a capital adventure as part of The Human Brochure campaign.

A super fun weekend in Canberra kicking off with a cocktail party at the War Memorial, other activities include a concert at the botanical gardens, seeing cheetahs at the National Zoo and dinner at the dinosaur museum. Phew! My part of the deal is to share all this fun stuff on twitter, facebook and instagram.

I grew up in Canberra, and I'm looking forward to taking my peeps to some of my favourite childhood haunts like Cockington Green. I wonder if the dog weeing on the leg of a cricket fielder is still there?   I loved that as a kid, and I'm sure my children will too.

Family fun aside, I'm also excited to finally meet one of my blogging friends in IRL! Lexi was  one of the first people to comment on my blog. Ever. And I'm super excited about meeting Tiny too and maybe picking up a few fashion tips.

It goes without saying I'm stoked to be part of such an innovative marketing campaign.  Finally all that time I've wasted invested in social media has started to pay off.

I'll be tweeting from here and there will be pretty pictures here if you want to follow along. Or search #humanbrochure to see what the other 496 humans are up to.

  2. Oh yay! I'm going too (in the food stream, but we'll all be at the War Memorial together on Friday night). I love Canberra & cannot wait to see what hidden gems they have to show us.

  6. Sounds fantastic, you lucky duck! My old stomping ground too :-) I went to Uni in Canberra and also spent every single weekend of my childhood at our farm in Braidwood.

    So cool you will meet Lexi - love it when bloggers catch up :-)

    Have a great trip!

  7. We just visited Cockington Green last week. Though my memory as a four year old is vague, it still seems very much like I remembered. And just as fun :) Can't recall the cricketer..but then again I was chasing after a toddler most of the time. Have fun!
