Long overdue post

I’m  long overdue with a blog post. We’ve just returned from a fantastic day skiing on the Remarkable mountains. Here’s a quick pic from a viewpoint that we could see our house from.  I’m back up tomorrow for an ice climbing course. Its all great here.  I’ve even had a few days where I’ve went […]

Our view today

We had a great cruise on the lake today after a big skiing day yesterday. Turned out it was a private cruise as noone else booked….which was great as we went to the far side of the lake. Its such a great day I wish it didn’t have to get dark!

Queenstown …..we’re going to like it. Winter hasn’t even […]

"I'm Not Going Home"

Call it easily pleased…or is it just the false pretence of seeing me working for a week while the “boss” stays at home…..but one sight of this gluten free burger (I’m sure it not just this particular burger but gluten free in general)…but on the first bite all I heard was “I can’t go home”. […]

First week as a Queenstown Resident

Just a small update to say we’ve survived our first week in the house, and almost my first week in the job. Yes I know you can see the joins in the picture above, but wanted to get this up here to show a different view of “home”.  Pretty neat eh?  Yup that’s the van […]
