Night shades of blue

It’s July 3rd, 2017 and while I’m busily painting my sleepout soffits white (what a horrible job), Eva develops a passion for denim and transforms a number of old jeans into pillows with beautiful motives in blue. I even got my own one with my name on! Very cool. :) Just after dinner (pumpkin schnitzel)…


Aurora Australis

Finally! After so many missed opportunities in the past, we ultimately got our own Aurora Australis pictures from our hilltop! Yay! :) Update June 1st, 2017: Our weekly free Tasman Leader newspaper used my picture on their cover page. That was unexpected! :)

Autumn Holidays 2017: White Cliffs and Three Sisters

A wonderful 3-4 hours loop walkway at White Cliffs that can only be done between 2 hours before and 2 hours after low tide. As it was just around the corner (30km) we also went to the Three Sisters and the now head-less elephant rock.

Autumn Holidays 2017: Motueka to Wellington

The mornings are getting colder and the sun rises significantly later than it used to just a few weeks ago. So we decided to head north, to be more specific, to Mt Taranaki on the North Island. The ferry sail from Picton to Wellington was amazing, with perfect weather conditions – again. :)
