Playing Catch-ups! – Part 2

In my continuing effort to catch you up on our hectic lives …

We have finally been back on the motorcycle! This took a little more effort than usual as we had to get her out of winter storage first, then we took her to the beach.

Those spots you see in the background of that shot is the air full of kite surfers. Would you like to know more?

Rottnest and the Quokkas

When I were a wee lass… just a few short years ago… I had a friend named Weapon, who told me stories of the Quokkas on Rottnest Island. I wasn’t going to be in his home town, and not go and see the quokkas. Poor Himself didn’t have a chance.

Other than wanting to go, this side excursion was mostly unplanned. So it was off to the concierge asking him to wield his magic for us! (I love a good concierge! They can do anything!) Would you like to know more?

Perth

Himself and I always wanted to go to Perth. It has been on our wishlist for many years, but we never quite managed to make it while still living in the country. So when I received a message from a friend that she was getting married, and it was in Perth, there was no way I wasn’t going to be there!

Why not travel around the world to see something you’ve never seen before?! We decided on balance that spending a week in Perth would be best. Achieve as much off our “want” list as possible. Would you like to know more?

Orana Animal Park

Himself and I have been trying to fit a trip back to this animal park into our Christchurch schedules for quite a few years now. I had only ever been once and it is one of the things Himself misses. So this trip we were going! Come hell or high water!

Thankfully we didn’t have to contend with either of those things, and we just drove in one day when we had cleared schedule. Would you like to know more?

The Lake District

There are odd, weird things that you miss when you move country. Things that, if you’d never left, you never would have eaten again. You wouldn’t miss them.

For me apparently, the “it” is crumpets with golden syrup. It was cold, I was in England, I regret nothing! Would you like to know more?
