Hello and Happy Mothers Day!

Just a quick 'Hello' to you all! I am missing catching up with all of you and I am looking forward to stopping by and seeing what everyone is up to soon!
I had a quick opportunity to drop in and do a quick post to let you know that I am alive and well! (there was an Australian lady who fell out of the bungee yesterday in the area where we were at the time and we had relatives who thought it may be me).
We are having a fantastic time and I am surprised at how much I am enjoying the motor home experience!
Here is just a little taste of the sights we have had.

We have hired the motor home for the whole two weeks and we are loving it. This was our view one morning when we woke up. We watched the sunrise over the ocean at Kaikoura, had breakfast and then headed off further north!

Just in case you don't believe me, here is the view I enjoyed through the window while I was having my morning coffee.

.....just to make sure you believe we were there (please remember it is early morning and I am still half asleep).

Tonight we are staying at Franz Josef Village and we are hoping to walk alongside the glacier tomorrow morning before we leave to make our way to Queenstown.

I wish all of the Mothers a 'Happy Mothers Day' for tomorrow.

My son has promised me a Special Mothers Day I would remember always, then he promptly added that we were in New Zealand and how can it not be special and memorable!

Oh well.. at least I know he will be spending it with me!

Have a great week and I look forward to catching up with you all when we get back! xx


  1. Sounds like a magical holiday. Enjoy Franz Joseph... I walked him 20 years ago when I didn't fall out of the bungee over Skippers Canyon. Maybe that's why my eyesight is so bad now - detached retinas from bungy jumping... oooh couldn't do it now though... A-M xx

  2. Happy Mother's Day to you too! Enjoy your holiday, the scenery looks breathtaking!

  3. Hi Nellie so glad you are having such a fantastic time...I have an award for you so when you can pop over to my blog..have a lovely day tomorrow. Hugs Kym X
