When Flights Get Delayed

When Flights Get Delayed

Sometimes life just doesn’t go your way. Sometimes you find yourself twiddling your thumbs at that airport gate for much longer than first intended. And sometimes you end up sitting in the plane, at the gate, even longer again. While other times you end up missing your connecting flight for one reason or another. When flights get delayed it can be And sometimes it all happens to you at once. *SIGH* This was what happened during my flight to Thailand…

Cuba St Night Market – Wellington, New Zealand

Who doesn’t love a good market? Or how about a night market? So have you heard of Wellington’s Cuba St Night Market? No? Then you need to check it out next time you’re in the windy city! After our delayed flight into Wellington (so long, lost 2 hours), we arrived at our hotel right on time for dinner. I’d heard about these markets from my online research into Wellington, and conveniently they’re on right around the corner from where we…

My April 2017 in Review…

My April 2017 in Review…

I have been appalling lazy with posting from April through to June. But I am determined to get back into the saddle rather than fall off and give up. It’s not as easy to build a habit as you would think after all. Around 21 days to make a habit and only three to break it. And I well and truly broke it. Maybe jumped on it a few times for good measure.

Zombie Dash – On the Run From the Undead

Zombie Dash – On the Run From the Undead

Last night, at the Zombie Dash fun run, I ran away from zombies… And I survived. I’ve always wanted to say that. Zombie Dash hit the Central Coast in Sydney, Australia last night and proved to be a scream for all involved. Yep, I totally just went there! Mt Penang Parkland was the source of the infection and a stunning location for an apocalypse at that.

Lord of the Rings Tours – Why They Should be on Your Bucket List

Lord of the Rings Tours – Why They Should be on Your Bucket List

Even if you haven’t read the epic story, you’ll at least have seen The Lord of the Rings movies. They were visually stunning, winning countless awards. They also helped to firmly cement New Zealand, the newly recognized Middle Earth, on a lot of bucket lists. For fans of both the books and movies, it has become a compulsory pilgrimage. While it’s currently been fourteen years since the last movie hit the silver screen and still the pilgrims demand Lord of the Rings tours. So…

An Evening with Best-Selling Author Candice Fox

An Evening with Best-Selling Author Candice Fox

Another Autumn storm was hitting as I glanced out the window at work, nervously looking at the time. I needed to get going soon if I was going to make it to Ryde Library in time for best-selling author, Candice Fox’s talk. I delayed as long as possible, the rain finally easing as I packed up my things and headed for the car. I’d first heard about Candice Fox from a friend’s rave reviews of her Archer-Bennett series. Intrigued, I’d added…

Off to the Gym: Why You Should Make Weights Your Friends

Off to the Gym: Why You Should Make Weights Your Friends

We’ve all heard the phrase “go heavy or go home”. Weights are intimidating. Just like the meatheads lording over that section of the gym. But they shouldn’t be. If losing weight and improving your body shape is your goal, then you need to make weights your friends. Cardio can only get you so far. When you finish that treadmill run, that’s it. You’re not going to burn any more calories from it. But lifting weights? Your muscles will continue to…
