Stunning arrival in Queenstown, NZ

Kevin had yet another work trip to Queenstown and this time I was lucky enough to be able to accompany him. I had originally planned to go for the whole two weeks but when we realized Christy would be picking up her puppy on the middle weekend, I decided to only stay for one week.

It was my first time flying Jetstar and besides the long line to check in, it really wasn’t too bad. The seats did seem a little squashier compared to Qantas but it was only a 2.5 hour flight (and I had an empty seat beside me.

I had preordered a SumoSalad and it was delicious (sorry I can’t work out how to rotate the picture).

As you can see the flight into Queenstown, over the mountains, was stunning. And Kevin says it’s even better in Winter they are covered in snow. In customs (which took some time as they were x-raying every bag) I recognised some of the people from Border Security NZ. We then pickup our rental car and headed for our hotel.

The Mi-Pod Hotel is very modern and would suit most people. However, we do prefer an apartment with a kitchen and room to spread out (especially on a trip like this where I will be spending a fair amount of time in the room).

If you watch the vlog you will just how small the room is (great for sleeping in but not much else).

Anyway, we got settled (can’t unpack as there is no wardrobe or drawer unit) and watched some Netflix (currently watching Designated Survivor).

Is anyone out there…..

Hello. Yes, it has been some time since I did a regular post here – a couple of years I believe. In case you aren’t following my YouTube channel or Instagram account I thought I’d do a bit of an update for you before I endeavour to get back on the blogging bandwagon.

As you can see the family has grown somewhat. Christy is 17.5, now driving and has started at TAFE doing a Territory Preparation Course.

Athena will be 20 next week, has an (in training) service dog, Koda, and is starting University this week. They have also recently gotten engaged to the lovely Ellie (though the wedding isn’t being planned for a few years yet).

My life is still spent dealing with fibromyalgia and adjusting to life without kids in regular 9-3 schooling. Kevin is a working for a company (having sold his about 18months ago). And we are still travelling, both in Australia in our motorhome, and overseas.

I feel like I have a lot to catch you up on but I’ll leave it here for now. If you have any questions or want to know about anything in particular, please let me know and I’ll write more about it.

And do please let me know if you have read this.

Until next time….
