Pauline (and her oh so much fun daughters Danella and Joanna, and Joanna’s partner Steve), Alys (and her husband Mike), Boomdee, and I had the most amazing time! Its hard to believe that after all the anticipation and planning, we are back home and blogging about it. I urge you to visit the blogs of these remarkable women and read their posts about the Blogger Babes Trip of a Lifetime. In case you are checking in for the first time, we:
- Toured Pauline’s World
- Enjoyed the beauty of the beach
- Rode in a 5 Person Trike
- Toured the University of Otago
- Drove to Wanaka
- Checked out Lake Wanaka
- Hiked Mt Iron
- Took a day trip to Queenstown
- Kayaked on Lake Wanaka
- Tasted New Zealand Wine
- Saw the world famous Wanaka Tree
- Visited historic Arrowtown
All too soon our holiday came to an end, and some of our group journeyed back home. As for me, and for Alys and Mike, further adventures awaited. While Alys and Mike toured more of New Zealand, I prepared to fly off to Australia to begin my solo adventure. Before that though, I enjoyed hiking and jetboating in Queenstown.
Once in Australia, I spent two days touring Melbourne and one fabulous day in Sydney.
The trip was incredible and after a couple years of anticipation and planning, it is hard to believe that the trip is over, and that we are all back home. Of course, being back home means that the world intrudes and the fullness of life gets in the way of blogging, and visiting blogger friends. So while I have so much more to share from the trip, I’m going to take a short break from writing new posts to visit all of you.
I’ll be back soon to share stories and images from The Great Ocean Road and Grampians National Park.
