+ this accommodation
+ this beautiful gourmet Island
+ these kinds of markets
+ lots of retail therapy
+ scenic exploration
and meeting the locals
and then coming home on this
In my former life (before children) I was a full time traveller.
(for want of a better title)
I am my HAPPIEST when I am planning, booking, preparing and going on an adventure.
I usually fly back to NZ every year to catch up with the whanau (family) and when I come home I go through a mild depression until I start planning my next trip.
Sometimes it may only be a quick trip to Melbourne, sometimes it's off to the coast for 2 or 3 days, other times it's a weekend on the Murray River or in the Mountains.
But my favourite adventures by far involve an aeroplane journey
and that's not necessarily because I enjoy travelling by air,
in fact the palaver before and after take-off is rather tedious
(especially with 3 children in tow)
it's more about the fact that we are going somewhere OVERSEAS!
Exotic locations are by far my pick,
(think Asia on a shoe-string)
but these days I am happy to go
And the "Apple Isle" has been on my bucket list
for like - EVER!
AND I think it will be rather
Bon Voyage my friends!
I will see you soon
