Auckland, Books, Journal, Travel


The thing i miss most when travelling is that neat line of books upon a shelf, books i am waiting to read, ones i love and my current reading. I seem to be a book hoarder. I can find a pile of books anywhere i go. Recently i have moved from a hostel back into a shared house. Up until now my to be read (TBR) pile has been getting in the way, taking up space on top of the chest of drawers in our room.

In the way TBR books

Flicking through a magazine at work i noticed super cheap, small book cases we can use as bedside tables from Warehouse. I headed over after work and got us two.

A home for a brew, my books and journal

Now my books (and my morning/evening cuppa) have a home.

Escape Masters


Today we spent an hour locked in a room trying to escape before the zombies got in and attacked us.
No I haven’t gone mad. Honest.
We entered into the world of escape masters, a new group activity to complete with your friends. All you have to do is find and solve the problems in a locked room in 50 minutes, we did it in 42. There is a range of scenarios (aliens, zombies and gangster attacks to name a few) to try out at 4 difficulty levels easy, medium, hard and extra hard. You get three chances to get help from your support staff member, we only needed one clue.

If you enjoy puzzles and ever watched crystal maze you’ll enjoy becoming an escape master. We did!!! A great hour spent on a Sunday afternoon at a reasonable price, well worth it!
