Burleigh Heads National Park walkway

How quickly we have settled back into routine, back home again for a short while after the last house sit.It is now early morning walks along the beach and around the beautiful Burleigh Heads National Park walkway. Only a short 20 minute track but it does have a hilly bit. The luxury of  spending time in the garden, rediscovering our favourite eating places and the Saturday farmers market with such fresh produce. Visiting friends and family Christmas flashed by and here we are on the threshold of 2012. The fantastic travel experience of the past two years is now a memory and a hard drive full of photos, and a promise to myself to sort them into some sort of order. Nearly 30,000 of them!!!

But already we are making plans for the next trip…

Five weeks from now we will be winging over to New Zealand to visit family and friends and time permitting discover some of the areas we missed when we lived there. This time Matilda will stay at home and our challenge will be fitting all we need for 2 months into a small back pack as we have decided just to take the 10kg carry on limit. We have not made plans apart from visiting family and so want to stay flexible. Maybe we will use the buses and trains, maybe hire a car. Without a lot of baggage it will make it easier to get around.I love the unknown in travel and leaving yourself open to whatever may happen. We also are very keen to do some couch surfing, a great way to meet the local people.

So New Zealand here we come….

  1. Thanks for the comments. I also love the planning stage, all those options… But once on the road the trip usually develops a life of its own

    I too love the unknown in travel. It’s great to plan, plan, plan in the lead up but once you hit the road (or the sky in your case) it’s nice to throw the plans out the window.


  3. Hi Naomi thanks for tip will look it up, sounds like our sort of budget…
    How is lovely old Hazel? Still taking you for walks along the beach?
