Once upon a time, Heather and I journeyed to a far off land in search of the worlds highest point. After days of trekking, experiencing a new level of cold and at an altitude where some of us couldn't think straight let alone breath, we discovered more than we ever could have imagined....

China at a Glance...

We have now been home for 3 weeks, the same amount of time that we were away. It's crazy how time flies, no matter if you are away living the world, or home partaking in every day life..

Here is a small glimpse of what we got up to in the mysterious and huge space that is The People's Republic of China...

Our thoughts are with the people of Nepal...

Written by Doug on April 26th, 2015.      0 comments


Once upon a time we visited the most amazing place on earth!! Nepal...
Not only did we fall in love with the landscape, we fell in love with the people.
The Nepalese are the most amazing people, so thoughtful, peaceful, and compassionate.

Coming from Christchurch, we have a relative understanding as to what you are going through.
For that reason and speaking from experience our thoughts and prayers are magnified..

So all the way from New Zealand, we are thinking of you..

Basilica di San Pietro in Vaticano...

Our fourth day in Rome brought us to St Peter's Square, to sit and gaze at the Basilica's beauty as dark filled the sky and the people continued to visit late into the night...

Shooting for the North Star...

Written by Doug on January 4th, 2015.      0 comments


They say aim for the moon and maybe land in the stars,
But if you miss you will be left floating in space,
A feeling not many people experience...

A shooting star travels further than we can imagine,
Just to put on a split second show for us!!!

Make a wish for where and what you like,
But remember to work towards that goal and dream!! Every day!!!

When I asked her name,
and she said Venice,
I knew right then that I wouldn't stand a chance...

Our Thoughts are Yours Sydney..

Written by Doug on December 16th, 2014.      0 comments

With Sydney being so close to New Zealand and with many Kiwi's living over there, including both my brothers, I have had many chances to go visit, especially recently for my brother's wedding... So it is completely startling to hear of today's news...

Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to "The Rainbow City", and we hope that all returns to normal as soon as possible...

Happy!!!

So there is this band that I've been waiting to see since I first heard music, waaaay back when I was born... further ago... even before I was born. When I was a twinkle in my Father's eye... my Father who loves this band more than I do!

After missing out on my only 2 chances, once due to my complete lack of money, at age 10, and again when I respected my mother's advice that once you make plans you never cancel them, especially if it's for something else that has come along that could be better.......
