Resilience wears a gold bikini – Weekly Photo Challenge

Happy New Year greetings to one and all! This week’s photo challenge is all about being resilient and Ben asks us to share a photo of something that has endured. This week, share a photo of something that says “resilient” to you. It could be a local landmark that has survived through the decades (or centuries), or a portrait of a…

Anticipating anticipation – Weekly Photo Challenge

Is it possible to anticipate anticipation?  I like to think so. With summer holidays upon us and family members from near and afar preparing to gather, I am anticipating the anticipation of us all being together again for the first time in over a year. I love spending time with my family 🙂  My three grown up girls make me…

Wonderlusting around the world

My blogging buddy Miriam has compiled this list of places around the world to visit featuring posts from fellow travel bloggers. I’m thrilled to have my recent New Zealand cycling trip included in her post. Have a read and maybe add some of these places to your list of ‘must see’ travel destinations!

Out an' About

I need another lifetime to travel to all the places I want to see. To experience even a fraction of the wonders in the world.

Though I’ve traveled widely I’ve yet to see even half of my own country (hopefully that will be rectified next year) yet still the allure of overseas cultures and countries is strong.

Recently I was asked by fellow adventurer from A Wandering Memory what my top destinations I’d love to visit are. So here they are, together with the bloggers who inspire and bring these places alive for me.

Sit back, grab a cuppa and prepare to be transported around the world.

1. Rocky Mountain High

Call me Heidi reincarnated but since I was a little girl I’ve loved the mountains. The spectacular vistas of Canada have always held enormous appeal particularly  when I read the adventures of my Canadian bloggers.

Vanish, invisible mending – a poem I found

While cycling in New Zealand recently I found this poem in a delightful little book about the local area. Reading through it, I found it really hit a chord with me.  The book was one of many available for visitors to flick though in one of the guest houses (Tiger Hill Lodge) we stayed in, probably to help showcase the…

Relax and unwind – Weekly Photo Challenge

This sunset! Relax is the prompt for this week’s photo challenge.  As Hakan B says: Life can be stressful. Work commitments, family trouble, financial obligations: the list goes on. And sometimes, it can all get a little too overwhelming. That’s why it’s so important to make time to just relax. Whether through meditation, a quiet walk, a day at the beach,…
