April Fools day, 5 years ago

Today, April 1st 2019, marks 5 years. Let me take you back April 1 2014. My 30th birthday being April 12, we had organised my engagement ring to be made. The deadline being before the 12th so that TW could give it to me on or before my 30th. My phone rang, it was my mum. I answer, she says “I can’t do this” … Read More April Fools day, 5 years ago

Honeymoon days 13-15 Hotel Wailea Maui

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. When we first stayed we thought the hotel was more than lovely. There this intangible peace and tranquility about the place. Oh, and those rooms, we adored the rooms. Large, … Read More Honeymoon days 13-15 Hotel Wailea Maui

Singapore – Day 6

Back to our usual, gym then breakfast, only today it was a little later than usual. It was ok though because rather than having to get to the office TW (and I) had an appointment at the employment pass office to get our Visa more properly sorted. Mine is just a LTVP – so I have no working rights – TW has the right … Read More Singapore – Day 6

Singapore – Day 3

Today was about starting the house search.  Gym, breakfast and then off to meet an agent at a shop house conversion in Chinatown. It is on the MRT to TW’s office and the unit was only a very short walk to the station plus it was right in Chinatown with everything you could want to eat at a budget friendly price. The issue with … Read More Singapore – Day 3

Singapore – Day 2

Day two was not nearly as full on or interesting as day one. We were meant to be house hunting but the agent and TW got off on the wrong foot during a phone call Yesterday (day 1) so it got cancelled which left our plans unexpectedly open. Today I found someone else, she seems nice and throughout the day I made plans for … Read More Singapore – Day 2

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 days 9.5 – 11

I am excited to talk about Bora Bora, TW has some photos and video he really wants to share and I think there is a lot of expectation but not a whole lot of people know someone who has been so there isn’t much first-hand information on it. Well we, don’t always go to tropical destinations. In fact, we have a lot of different … Read More Honeymoon days 9.5 – 11

Tikehau days 2 through to 6

So here we are, just a couple of days in to our trip and sunburnt, relaxed and time is almost irrelevant. It would be compeltely irrelevant if meal times weren’t so specific. (to catch up on our previous days check here Sydney to Tahiti to Tikehau and here Tikehau day 1 and 2) The sun and time is different on Tikehau. It is daylight and … Read More Tikehau days 2 through to 6

Tikehau day 1 and 2

We arrived on Tikehau island right on lunch time. We plan to head to lunch as soon as we have everything settled in our room. It looks like there will be a storm blowing through. The view is great. The sun is out, sky is blue, water is every shade of blue, we can see clearly in to the water and saw a shark … Read More Tikehau day 1 and 2
