…my ma and faux pa dropped me off, with all 14kgs of my possessions, at Bath Spa Bus Station. It was time for me to board the National Express to the big smoke, ready to head off on my next adventure. I remember getting out of the car pretty quickly, making out to not hold … More Five years ago today…
A few weeks ago the other half and I grabbed our passports and boarded a flight to Brisbane. Hi-5 to me for taking advantage of a great AirNZ sale last year. Yet again. I’ve been to Sydney. It’s alright. I’ve been to Melbourne. It’s bloody fantastic. Now, I’ve been to Brisbane. It happily put Sydney … More BRISTOL to BRISBANE
I’m sure there are a lot of you going on about how you can’t believe January is over and done with already, well yes, aren’t we all, and that much is true.

Another weekend brought on another weekend out of the city that is home, Auckland. Skipping out of work after a last minute fire drill, car pre loaded, we drove straight on to the already stalled motorway, and set off on our five and a half hour drive south.

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.

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. A few months back good old Air New Zealand was having one of its many sales, and I snapped up some cheap as tickets to head down to Wellington for a weekend. That weekend felt like a long time coming, but it arrived … More Weekend in CAPS LOCK.
After two weeks of bed rest, I was as keen as my 50 hour working week boyfriend to get away from it all. 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.
