For my interpretation of this week’s photo challenge, I’ll take a look at all the places I’ve visited here on Earth.
I haven’t travelled as much as I want to, but I have seen quite a few incredible things.
In my home country of New Zealand, I hiked the Tongariro Crossing and saw the Emerald Lakes.
I went to Sydney, and I was able to see the Blue Mountains, an impressive rock formation.

Hello all! I would like to complain about the weather. The weather has sucked here lately. We have been lucky enough to have one sunny day here or there, but as we head into more of autumn, and then winter (ugh), I’m sure we will see more grey and rain.
I thought it would be nice to upload photos of past summer days where Rory and I would walk around town. We’d walk around the waterfront, Courtenay Place, and just look around. I would constantly stop to take photos of whatever interested me. I’ve posted some of these photos before, but I have a lot sitting in my phone. So I thought I would pick out the best and show them to you guys, while I wait for the rain to go away.

It took me longer than I intended, but let me share with you all my wonderful trip (a.k.a. honeymoon) to Fiji with my brand new husband Rory!
As you’d know from Honeymooning Through Food, we stayed at Taveuni Island Resort. To travel there from New Zealand was a bit tricky however. We flew from Wellington to Nadi on Sunday afternoon (it takes around 3 and a half hours). Then we needed to take a connecting flight from Nadi to Taveuni. The timing of both flights always clashed. So we ended up having to stay the night in Nadi. This was on our first night in Fiji, and again on our last night as we ran into the same problem timetable wise.
For our one-night stay in Nadi, we booked with Aquarius on the Beach. This was a lovely hostel, only 15 minutes from the airport. They also offer to pick you up and drop you off to the airport (for only $14 FJD), so we thought it would be a good place to stay.

So for our honeymoon, we stayed at a luxury resort in Taveuni, Fiji. Taveuni Island Resort. As part of our stay here, we got fed amazing food. All three meals were catered to us, and they were huge. I’ll post later about our adventures at the resort, but the food alone deserves a post. Breakfast was five courses, lunch and dinner were both three courses. Breakfast is served with fresh muffins, a plate of fresh fruit, and an assortment of cereals on the table ready for you to choose. You can also choose from a selection of cooked breakfasts. Lunch and dinner all have a starter, main and dessert. They offer two choices for the mains for lunch and dinner and ask you to choose one during breakfast. I took pictures every day of what I was having. That’s what this post will be about.
Breakfast – Fresh Fruit, Muffins with Butter, Pancakes and a Mocha.
Lunch – Bean Salad (starter), Fish Wrap (main), and Fresh Fruit with Ice Cream (dessert)
Dinner – Pumpkin Soup with Fresh Rolls (starter), Pickled Pork with Roasted Vegetables (main), and Pineapple Meringue with Passionfruit Ice Cream (dessert).
We also got drinks on our first night. Rory had the Taveuni Special and I had a Long Island Tea. I liked Rory’s one better though as it was more fruity so we swapped!

The last chapter of our Peru Adventures. It was an amazing experience altogether, and was new Territory for me. But I’m glad I did it, I have so many stories from it! I hope you enjoy this final chapter and entry on my trip to Peru!

Iquitos was our last stop in this month long Peru Trip. We arrived at the airport and were immediately picked up to go to our lodge in the Rainforest. We spent five days in the Amazon Rainforest, getting amazing catered meals, going out on tour everyday, seeing an amazing range of animals and sights, and constantly battling mosquitos. Being there everyday felt magical, like we had taken an Elixir (see what I did there), and been transported to another world.

Paracas was hot, but not as hot as Ica. We were back to the seaside, staying at a hostel that was across from the beach. We stayed for a couple of days, and only went touring on one of those days. The rest we used to relax and unwind after a packed couple of last weeks.
