Queenstown – Part 4

It was my final morning in Queenstown.

We went for a cruise on the lake as that was something Kevin hadn’t done before. It was such a gorgeous day for it and we were able to sit outside and really enjoy it.

The Remarkables

It was such a lovely way to spend my last morning in Queenstown. After the cruise we went back to the room and collected my luggage before heading to the airport. Kevin stayed and had lunch with me, then I went through to Qantas Club and he headed back to the room.

Thankfully I had a window seat for the flight as we once again had stunning views of Queenstown and the surrounding area on the way home.

Hello again Sydney

Queenstown – Part 3

I admit it’s been quite some time since I returned home from Queenstown but I wanted to finish sharing photos of this special trip.

For the last two day it was the weekend so I was able to spend the days with Kevin. On Saturday we drove out to Glenorchy. The views were incredible and we were constantly stopping, getting out of the car, and taking photos.

Now there isn’t too much at Glenorchy but we spent quite a while exploring Mrs Wooly’s General Store. The old (non-minimalist) me could have bought quite a bit here. But I just bought a sloppy joe (don’t have one) and some pies for lunch.

After lunch we had a little wander around and watched the local swans before heading to Dart River Cruises.

for out jet boat tour. This was awesome and so much fun. To be out on the water (on such a gorgeous day) surrounded by majestic mountains, was such a memorable experience.

After the jetboat ride we had a short walk through the forest before one final stop on the bus ride back to Glenorchy.

Isn’t this just picture perfection? No wonder so much of Lord of the Rings was filmed around here.

A Day in my Life – 14th March, 2016

It’s been quite some time since I’ve done a day in my life blog post but I love seeing how my life has changed over the years (though these days it’s not necessarily for the better!!).

Being early March, my day started with catching up on what happened during the Iditarod overnight. It’s due to finish tomorrow night and is getting rather exciting.


Then it’s time to watch the cycling.


Since I was up early this morning I was able to see some of the lovely sunrise, but unfortunately I wasn’t feeling good enough to head out on a walk.


Athena and Kevin have headed up to Sydney for their driving test so I hung out the washing when it was ready.



I also had some breakfast, but I’m a bit out of practice with taking photos for blogging, so forget to get a pic. Athena, however, remembered to send me a pic :-).


After having a shower I worked on a vlog.


Nan & Pop offered to take Athena out for lunch to celebrate getting their Ps, so just after 12pm we headed into Wollongong. I haven’t been down that end of town for a while and was amazed at all the building that is going on.


When we got to the Indian place, it was closed, so Thee’s second choice was Thai.


Yet, again, bad on the photography front, but I did remember to get my meal, which was delicious.



After lunch Thee headed off to meet a friend, and I returned home with Nan & Pop, to two very excited pups.


Didn’t get much done for the remainder of the afternoon, but I did bring in the washing.


And go pick up Christy from school.


Time for the dogs to have their heartworm & flea/tick treatments.


With Athena going out for dinner, I decided to make Nachos for dinner, but it turns out that neither Kevin or I were that hungry and we unable to finish our bowls.


We watched some documentaries – this was “A walk through history” with Tony Robbins.


Then it was time to get the kitchen all clean and tidy and head up to bed to do some reading.
