Happy New Year! Slightly belated I know, but have some pictures from England where I spent most of December/January:
I had a fantastic time in Brisbane for my birthday weekend last month! There was so much on – a food market, flyovers and fireworks on the river… all that just for me 😉
I ate sooo much at the Eat Street markets. We couldn’t decide on just one thing for dinner so we each chose something from a different stall and ended up sharing about four or five different dishes!
We kept getting buzzed by this SUPER loud plane when we were walking round South Bank. We eventually realised it was doing rehearsals for Riverfire the next night.
This was only meant to be in three parts, but Christchurch wanted a post all to itself, so, bonus part?
Said goodbye to the camper van and took a taxi into Christchurch. Dumped our stuff at the hotel (which has a tram line running through it!), then went for a walk around the city.
So mum decided that she wanted to go to New Zealand. She planned out a nice, small, cheap trip in a campervan around the South Island.
Then I decided I had to go to Hobbiton. Which is in the North Island. And so began our epic journey across two islands, on a quest to see as much of New Zealand as we could in three weeks, and possibly destroy a ring in the process.
