Having come back from holiday and having a couple of weeks of school holiday left, I thought I would compile a list of things to do in Auckland.
I scoured about 4 or 5 different travel websites and read through the many things they suggested to be done in Auckland, many of these things are free, and took the ones I thought would be most important and interesting to do. Continue reading “24 Things To Do In Auckland”→

This is the 13th Photography spotlight, This week’s theme is Mountains/ Volcanoes. Here in Auckland we have a lot of volcanoes (about 40 I think) and they are spread all over the city. I wanted to share some of them with you today. I know not everyone can take pictures of volcanoes so that’s why it’s mountains as well.

On a sunny-ish day, last week, a Monday to be precise. We took a trip up the Sky tower in Auckland to see the view from the top. I have done this a couple of times before in different cities (Sydney and Melbourne) and really enjoy looking at the city from so high up. I wanted to go at sunset so we would get the best of the city in both daylight and darkness but He wasn’t going to wait till that late at night to go. Continue reading “The View From The top”→
While travelling you meet all sorts of wonderful and talented people. One of these is the lovely Dan Vickers. We met while living in a hostel in Australia, i was privileged to hear him play many times in a few different places. He agreed to share a little of his story with me….
So tell us a little about how you started playing music.
I started playing guitar when I was 15. I listened to a lot of rock and metal, and wanted to be a rockstar. I loved playing all the rock riffs on a £20 guitar from a charity shop… And just sort of stuck at it over the years. Its just been fun!
I thought i would start updating what i’ve been reading each month here on my blog with a small review of what i thought of the book.
Previous Reading History
Before 2013 i read. No keeping lists of books i had read, i think maybe i had just signed up to Goodreads. But when i left the UK in 2013 i started tracking what i read in the back of my calendar journal. It started of really scrappily on a piece of paper and then i just wrote down the title and author. I was interested to see the next year how many paperbacks i read compared to kindle books and so it started. I have got more interested in stats and this has encouraged me to read more out of my comfort zone. So, this year, i have been trying to read more non-fiction books.
