I have been a little MIA as of late, Blackbird Goods has been sucking up most of my extra time, But I am back! And thought I would share a few snaps from our trip to Thailand.
We embarked and ended our journey in Bangkok, beautiful, crazy Bangkok. With The Monocle Guide to Bangkok in hand, we were insanely excited to eat and experience all Bangkok had to offer, while of course chucking some work in there. Well it may have been a bit the opposite, there were far too many great things to be found ( that will soon grace the shelves of Blackbird Goods ) and we seemed to run out of luck with establishments, arriving too late or on the wrong day. Note to self, always check before you venture across the city. Nevertheless, Bangkok is an incredible city, always bustling with people, smells, plants and delicious food. And it’s always a bonus when it’s Chinese new year.
Next stop, Krabi and Koh Lanta.
If you ever get the chance to visit Tongariro National Park. Go. Do it. You will in no way regret it.
Last weekend the husband and I had the pleasure of a long weekend in the crisp air. Celebrating six years of marriage, six years of the good, the great, and the heartbreaking. No tv, no work, just us, the fresh air, the mountains, incredible vistas in a dinky wee cabin with a fire place and of course a scruffy wee Frankie. Utter perfection.
Along with the above ( Plus copious amounts of cheese, crackers and wine ) there was a fair bit of picture taking, Here is the first of two installments.
Until next time
Unlike previous summers, we spent most of ours at home. We usually spend the summer in a bit of a mad rush between families and friends, never really feeling like we have had a break. So with this in mind we thought we would stick around, spending our days in a balance of renovations and swimming in the river.
We headed north to visit my parents in the new year, it’s quieter and feels more like home at that time of year. It never really feels like summer until I am swimming in the Northland waters.
And now to get back to ‘normal’ and get stuck into 2015!!
Until next time,
