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.
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.
With Winter now fully settled in and setting up camp for the forseez, plus with Fiji being something that feels like it belongs in a history book because it was so long ago (I’ve been back from that paradise over eight and a half weeks now. See, history books, no exaggeration!), I was pleased when my … More Weight probably gained, but possibly a film contract too. Speak to my people…
It’s been five weeks since I returned from the beautiful paradise that was, Fiji! Lemme tell you, it didn’t take long to feel like I hadn’t been away at all, and now feels forever and a day ago. With my next good stint of a holibob being six months away (Sydney), I thought it best … More Bula! B’bye! Back!
Another public holiday is upon us, this time celebrating the good work of those decent forces troops, ANZACaceries. So, another public holiday means Sambo gets another weekend mini break. But, I didn’t decide on going anywhere new, that my peepers hadn’t seen before, no, not this time, I went back to the beautiful Mount Maunganui. … More You there, rain, you will not wash away our memory making. But okay, I’ll take the trench foot.
