Road trip… come with me

Due to the serious lack of gardening because of the ‘incident’ and weather that couldn’t make up its mind from one moment to the next, my gardening regime has taken a dent in productivity.  It was the most frustrating week, so to take my mind off it all, we took a road trip to Rotorua, our most geothermal region in this young active county.  They don’t call New Zealand “The Shaky Isles” for nothing.  It is also a very beautiful part of the country and a bit of a magnet for tourists.

I decided it would be really cool to take you all along for the ride, so enjoy the highlights and scenery of a great weekend with me.  We  had a blast.

Come again soon – there were some really brave trees with a tragic tale to tell.

  1. Hey Sarah .. How nice to get away. And to one of my favourite places in New Zealand. I always take friends from OS there .. So much to see. Great video. So pleased your finger is on the mend. And, thank you for your kind words on my blog!

  2. What a fun video, Sarah. I’m sorry to hear about the painful shot to go along with the rusty tear to your thumb. Misery! It’s nice that you got away and what beautiful vistas along the way. I bet the boys were excited for an unplanned road trip. As for that rain, I might just save that clip and play it over and over and over again. It’s music to my ears.

    1. Thanks Alys. I shall try not to think of the rain as annoying anymore. My thumb is well and truly on the mend but if I bend it to far then I know about it. It must have been quite deep.
      The road trip was fabulous. It is so nice to get away for a couple of days and not be faced with normal things like laundry and dishes! I’m glad you enjoyed the view. For a small country we have many different types of scenery, so this time you were able to see the mostly flat farmland part of the country. The boys had a fab time.
      Cheers Sarah : o )

      1. There are so many never endings in our fingers, that I can imagine you’ll hurt for awhile. I hope you regain the sensation and full use once it’s healed.

        Are your boys on holiday from school this time of year?

        1. Hi Alys. I am healing nicely, which is great.
          The boys are on holiday now for two weeks between term 2 and 3. The winter holidays are the hardest because the weather knows it’s holidays and rains for two weeks and then you end up with housebound, stir crazy kids!
          Cheers Sarah : o )

          1. Hi Alys, the sun is shining today which is a great thing. And Joey was over the moon with your unexpected parcel. Thank you so much.
