The Plan

Well, after many attempts to be clever and post a copy of a map showing where we're going, I have decided it may just be easier to send you here to have a look instead.

3, 4, 5 ...

Maybe the photo size will be better this time ...

Testing 1, 2 ...

Just a test post to see if the ap Blogger+ can do more for me than BlogPlus. If this ends up published then I suppose the answer is yes!

This little piggie ...

... was wandering around Queenstown!

it was very difficult to get a good photo of him, he ran too fast!

Apparently he belonged to a couple who were traveling around in an old campervan with him.

Spring in Winter and now Winter in Spring

After loving us with beautiful, springy, sunny days through winter the weather has now decided to give us rainy and cold with a chance of hail and thunderstorms in spring! That, my friends, is Melbourne at its finest!

This on the other hand is another photo of one of our pets sleeping in a strange place ...

Building the deck was obviously hard work!
Trust me, it's much nicer to look at than the grey dreariness outside.

ummm ...

I guess it's a good excuse not to do the ironing

Broome, WA

Sorting through our old holiday photos has been quite a trip down memory lane for me. I can't decide whether to keep posting the New Zealand photos in order or not so instead I give you Broome. A different year, a different country and very different weather! (thanks to Kate at Foxs Lane for reminding me how much I enjoyed this holiday)

I'm leaving on a jet plane ...

... don't know when I'll be back again.

Actually, I do know when I'll be back again but not knowing sounds so much more fun.

Three weeks from now The Sparky and I will be in the sky somewhere between Melbourne and Doha on our way to Zurich. Three weeks after that we'll be home again, but I don't want to think about that right now, it feels a little too much like wishing my life away.

As I now have travel on the brain (and in recognition of the fact that this blog was originally only set up so that I could share photos from the upcoming holiday with family and friends) I will be sifting through old holiday photos, practicing editing them on the iPad and sharing them here.

Our first stop on the upcoming holinday is Zurich, Switzerland so it seems appropriate to start this trip down memory lane with photos from another cold, green country - New Zealand.
