August Adventures – Happy Birthday Janice

Sunday 19th August

After waking at an unearthly hour of 5:30am, Janice started her day by opening birthday cards from family. She then went back to sleep until 6:30am (much to the relief of her tired room mate!)

Morning tea in bed at 6:30am and then off for a morning walk. A wonderful way to start her birthday.


Breakfast time finally arrived and at the entrance to the restaurant area was the “Happy Birthday” sign which was signed in many different languages by well wishes at the conference.

On Janice’s head is a birthday cake made out of balloons!

The birthday celebration continued into the afternoon with an Aussie arvo tea in Ustron at the Chopin Cafe. The occasion was also in celebration of the recent engagement of Jennifer and Adi from IT’s Timisoara Romanian Team. The desserts were big and beautifully presented.

A few of us found that our eyes were bigger than our stomachs!
