Working shifts comes with pro’s and con’s like any working pattern. However, when your contract states you must work just two weekend shifts in a calendar month, it appears that the pro’s do in fact outweigh the con’s. Especially when I rostered myself off for a weekend that just so happened to remind the people … More (Sugar + exercise = weekend) + The Mount = a GREAT weekend
A minions handful of weeks ago, the boy and I jumped on to our bargain bonanza flights to Wellington, for a weekend of non-Auckland surroundings.
I’m sure you’re aware the travel trips have subsided over the years, yeah, that’s adulting for you. You’ll also be aware, if I could, I’d be a full time travelling gypsy and jetting around non stop. Thanks to Air New Zealand a wee while back, I snapped up some super cheap flights down to a … More Out with the old, in with the New, Plymouth
With it being two weeks since I returned from the tropical paradise of the Cook Island, and to my eyes, the tan working its way down the 50 Shades of Brown scale (“you’re so tanned Sam”, say my colleagues, but what do they know. I need me my freckles!!), I thought it an ideal time … More Rarotonga: too beautiful for even my word quota.
It’s all about the purchase of cheap flights. That’s the simple truth.

With the Queen having a birthday weekend, giving us a bonus play day, I suggested a night camping under the stars to escape real life. With it being the start of Winter, … More Fit for a Queen…s Birthday.
ROAD TRIIIIIIIIIP! Yip, sure has been a while, but a weekend was on the cards and so was a road trip. A 7.45am Saturday morning pick up: two smiles and two tired faces, four English lasses were en route to Whitianga for the weekend. Toot toot! The aim of the weekend, to spa or not … More A beautiful form of wit
Shut the front door! Yip, you’re right, I’m actually blogging about an ACTUAL travel trip. Yip, KodakKirky filled a satchel, hopped on board a flight and headed away for nine days. HELLO! Whilst most of chums back on home turf are sending me Snapchats of their Summer Holidays, or sitting in pub gardens enjoying a … More Site skiing. Snow joke.
I have a selection of board games up for grabs if you’re the first person to tell me when I last posted an actual real travel post.* I say this, because, well, looking at the name of my blog, it’s kinda stating that it’s a blog to record my adventures experienced whilst travelling. More so … More Mayzen Melbourne – May 2016
Spent two years of my life (over various trips) in New Zealand, and never been to Australia. Everyone asks what Australia is like, I dunno, I live in New Zealand, duh. “You’ve NEVER been to Aus?”, “Nope, NZ, whoooole different country.” Not sure how many times that (brief) conversation has gone down. But, but my … More Sydney, Australia.
