Harold is the NZ Life Education mascot; I thought it was only appropriate to have a photo with him About 3 weeks ago I had my third and final go at donating blood. This year I've tried 3 different times to give the gift that can save lives, but every time I've managed to pass [...]

Photo Friday! Week 43: Mount Cook Peeking

Mount Cook NZ

Nothing but a mate, a Jucy Campa, the same 3 CDs on repeat and the open roads of the South Island. October 2010, a friend and I took a week to explore the Wild West Coast of NZ, and although we didn't get in to Mount Cook, we spotted it peeking through the clouds while [...]

A big heartfelt thank you to those who've supported me in this worthy cause already! And 'a bit' may be something of an understatement... In university, I was notorious for staying up all night to write essays and papers - I perfected and aptly named this, the 'Print and Sprint', as I'd often hand things [...]

  Notice something different? December 2008 If you head south on either of the main highways in Nova Scotia, you'll end up in the little town of Yarmouth (because the both highways quite literally END there).

While on the ground watching others and waiting for our turn to board a little wee plane which we would jump out of shortly thereafter, the anticipation was building to the point of no return.

My mind is always wandering, wondering “where to next?” and “how can I get there?” I've got to have some travel plans in the pipe line to keep me going. Right now it is currently the spring school holidays; two weeks off to recuperate from the whirlwind 11 week term that took me by storm [...]
