48) Pickled Onions

I've been wondering lately if it's ever possible to really know a person. That is to know them inside out, to see the inner corners of their mind, to fill in all the blank spaces and questions in your own mind about them.

47) Queenstown Vs Goliath

We all know the story of David and Goliath right? Personally, when I picture David, I’m picturing a slightly short, slimly built boy shirtless in ripped trousers standing in front of a giant.

34) Mount Kayak

So we have recently made the decision to stay in New Zealand permanently and become actual grown ups at last! That means it's time to make some changes. One of these changes is our apartment, I no longer view it as a temporary stop over, it's now a more permanent home in my mind so... Continue Reading →
