I’m not usually a fan of cold weather – I find myself constantly repeating the phrase ‘it’s freezing’ during the winter months. It’s quite chilly already here on the Gold Coast, and this year I’ve decided to embrace the cold and find lots of reasons to enjoy the cold. Advertisements

I’m always trying to find exciting and educational activities to get our whole family involved with. It can be a little tiring, and I think every now and then it can be healthy for the kids to be involved in activities designed just for them – and this allows the big kids to do what they want too! (In my case, this means absolutely nothing, especially if I’m on holiday!)
It’s Friday! I’m sure you’ve noticed – everyone (including you) is in frivolous spirits, excited about the end of the work week and ready to welcome two days of freedom with wide open arms. Today, I’ve got a special Friday treat for you. They say a picture is worth a thousand words – so, in fact, this is going to be a very long blog post. Behold! A photographic journey around New Zealand – 8 stunning photos that I just […]
There are 4 popular ski fields within driving distance from Queenstown and Wanaka. I have mentioned 2 of these in my previous blogs “The Remarkables” and “Coronet Peak” these are the ones closest to Queenstown. The next two I would like to write about are closest to Wanaka and our WorldMark South Pacific Club Resort. These are Cardrona and Treble Cone.
