You have to be in it to win it

One of my favourite things to do is to enter travel competitions. Even if it prize takes a lot of your time and regardless of it being a paid or unpaid trip (as in some prizes include spending money or an allowance if it is a long trip). I apply for sabbaticals, internships. I don’t care. If it has to do with travel and … Read More You have to be in it to win it

Honeymoon days 16-17

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. We had an amazing time doing nothing on Maui. Such a great way to relax after the huge, no time for stopping road trip across Canada. … Read More Honeymoon days 16-17

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

First​ Valentine’s Day in Singapore

Happy Valentines day everyone. TW is away for work so Lola is my Valentine and she is lapping it up. Such a cutie. She won’t dress up for it. That’s fine, we live her just the way she is.

Moving our cat overseas from country NSW to Singapore

I was with her at my parents’ farm until our move to Singapore. TW was commuting between Sydney and the farm.

Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 3 – the finalé)

We learned a lot about me in part 1 and 2 but not a huge amount about Amangiri. Why was that important? I always read reviews and then discard them because I don’t know what kind of person they are. Do they hate life and everything good that has ever happened to them? Are they the kind of people who insist on seeing only … Read More Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 3 – the finalé)

Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 2)

In part 1 we established the fact that:1. Everyone should go to Amangiri 2. I didn’t have many childhood holidays 3. I don’t have a nostalgic association of what a holiday should be4. My dad drove trucks and has a plane I did work on a summer camp – Camp Birch Hill in New Durham, New Hampshire when I was 19. That experience has … Read More Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 2)

Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 1)

Oh, Amangiri, how I miss thee. I have been told many times that I should write my stories down, not just about travel. The things I say in general but I do talk to people about travel a lot. Mine, theirs, a relative’s, someone they used to know. It doesn’t matter who went on the trip, travel is a good topic. Though, I never … Read More Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 1)
