After getting back from NZ, London was rather a bit chilly, nice crisp zero degrees on some days infact. Hearing that spring has been delayed made me think of sunny Splore. Fortunately we were off to Tenerife for a Norwegian wedding the following week! The urge to compare everything to NZ was overwhelming. However after being in the freezing […]
It was almost time to go back to London. But first, a quick visit to Waiheke Island was in order. Only being a short ferry ride from Auckland, it was the perfect spot to catch the last of the sun and drink some wine. It was the cherry on top on what has been an […]
