Granville Markets & Shopping

Sunday 14th January Today I fell in love with Vancouver that little bit more. When I walked outside, there was sunshine! I couldn’t believe it. This whole time I’ve been here the sky has been grey and gloomy with low cloud hanging around and a continuous drizzle. On Sunday I had signed up for one…

Gastown & Capilano Suspension Bridge

Life Update, WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

Short answer to that heading, I’ve been nowhere! With my major absence on the blogging front and lack of activity on here you’d think I was off on some big amazing trip meeting so many new people that I didn’t have any time to log on and tell you all about it! I’ve actually been…

Rarotonga Day 1

We arrived in Rarotonga last night on a very late flight from Auckland. We left around 7:45pm and after a 4 and a half hour flight, eventually landed in Rarotonga around 12.30am. We where a bit late as the pilot announced there was a lot of rain so we had to circle above the airport…
