Contacting travellers – ie us – while they are travelling.

KR, I am looking at you. We can tell if you have it because on the app it will have your name. The app pulls details from … Read More Contacting travellers – ie us – while they are travelling.

We spend 2 relaxing nights at Hotel Wailea. Our final night we had the most amazing dinner. This was going to be the last real night of our honeymoon as we have to start our journey home tomorrow.

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

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

Destination wedding, where should we go?

The biggest argument for not having the wedding of your dreams or not having it in the location your heart desires, isn’t budget, it is people pleasing. Budget is a huge factor in what you do decide, be it your money or someone else’s. In most cases it is hard earned cash and should be spent wisely, there is no doubt about that but … Read More Destination wedding, where should we go?

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
