After arriving in Australia, I’d like to share the following thoughts on it’s people and customs. 1. They have an Apple Store right next to a Target! This was my new Mecca and I would never leave. 2. These pants are never acceptable. Ever. (I took that for you Em) 3. I believe this policy […]

To all future American football lovers – My Appologies

Jan 06, 2011 No Comments

The Rose Bowl. The ultimate college football showdown. I have actually never watched one before. Shhhhhh don’t tell the football gods. Anyways, Dana (the girl I was staying with) was a Texas Christian alum and they were playing Wisconsin in the bowl! Woot! She had called around to a few bars in Christchurch to find […]

My insane 19hr journey to Queenstown

Dec 30, 2010 1 Comment

I made friends with some Swedes during my Epic Lost World Caving Extravaganza (I just felt like capitalizing everything in that statement to make it seem more powerful). They were going to be in Queenstown for Christmas and had invited me down to join them. We had all agreed that it was extremely difficult to […]

The glory of burst photography

Dec 10, 2010 2 Comments

The mud pools at Wai-O-Tapu. The bane of every photographer. The edges of the pool are lined with people trying to get the perfect shot of bubbling mud. So very glad for my new camera and it’s burst setting. 10 photos in 2 seconds. Hallelujah! [ alternative search viagra | cialis canadian cost | cialis […]

I finished the book I had brought with me and today decided to buy a new one. I had passed a huge bookstore on Queens Street several times in downtown Auckland and thought it would a good place to start looking. I could not have been more wrong! Let’s take a look shall we? This […]

Ummmmmm ok?

Two random thoughts for today. 1. These were stuffed toy rugby dolls I saw at a souvenir shop today. The black one I’m ok with. It’s the lipstick on the other that’s slightly strange. 2. This was a purse I saw. I’m sure the little faces are supposed to be cute. They reminded me of […]

Although I’m a pro at jaywalking in busy cities, Auckland has proved slightly more problematic. The whole driving on the left-hand side of the street makes me afraid that I’m not seeing where all the cars are driving. So I find myself using the crosswalk buttons more than usual. The ones here are fantastic! Not […]

My new obsession

Nov 26, 2010 No Comments

On my walks into the town of Manurewa (pronounced Man-you-ree-wa incase you were wondering) I’ve become fascinated by the mailboxes! It’s quite frightening how many times I stop to take photos of them. I get awesome looks from all the cars driving by. Here’s some so you can understand where I’m coming from: [ cialis […]

A friendly downtown reminder

Nov 16, 2010 No Comments

All of those who live, and more importantly, park downtown would like to share this photo with you. This is NOT an acceptable parallel parking job. If you do not know how to parallel park, please do not come downtown. You annoy the rest of us. [ who sells generic viagra | cialis soft tablets […]

Lions and tigers and giraffes!

It’s free zoo day! Normally I would avoid going anywhere near the zoo on free days. It’s a complete madhouse. Children everywhere. Insane chaos. But this weekend when Stacey called, we all thought,”Why the hell not?” It was freezing and we thought it would keep the crowds to a minimum. Obviously, several other people thought […]
