Drowning

Drowning. Many people say they would like a peaceful death. So they think that drowning would be the best way to go. I heard TW’s mum say it once and he said he doubted that was any kind of peaceful. I suggested that the way my Great Grandma passed, at night in her sleep, next to her husband, from liver failure, was probably more … Read More Drowning

MAUI!! Hotel Wailea. Finally! We are back. So excited. Our first trip to Maui, back in 2009, we stayed at¬†Hotel Wailea¬†and loved it so for our honeymoon we knew we had to go back.

Where we have been.

Everyone has their own travel bucket list. We are checking as many off as we can. Everywhere and anywhere is on our list, so we don’t keep a list of places to go just places we have already been.

Honeymoon days 11 to 13

Waking up in Quebec was a great feeling. We could take our time with everything today. Our road trip is now basically over and it has been the first time since we left Vancouver that we really could just relax. We didn’t want to see much more than the old town itself and we saw almost all of it last night while deciding where … Read More Honeymoon days 11 to 13

Honeymoon: 48-72 Hours

For dinner, while TW still wasn’t feeling well we were trying to find simple foods. Knowing Shore Fyre was no longer the go to for us. I googled: “steak rice salad Oahu” and sure enough 2 minutes from our hotel was a place called The Steak Shack. This sounded enough like blazing steak to coax TW away from the safety of the hotel and … Read More Honeymoon: 48-72 Hours

Honeymoon: 24-48 hours

The day we landed was a very very long day. I had a lunch and site inspection booked for The Modern Hotel. TW was invited to the lunch and I thought he might actually enjoy snooping around the hotel. I get a lot of flak for being a snoop but his is almost as bad as me, maybe worse, rather than snoop himself he … Read More Honeymoon: 24-48 hours

Honeymoon first 24 hours

It isn’t every day you go on your honeymoon and while I have been accused of having too many holidays (in general and also to fancy/luxury places) that I will have spoiled expectations of my honeymoon and the pressure will be on to outdo a “normal” holiday for us. Well, I had been ill and reassessed my life and direction so I embarked on … Read More Honeymoon first 24 hours
