Goodbye to New Zealand…

New Zealand…to blue skies and lakeside walks, to fabulous food (we’ve been truly spoiled by the Husband’s Mother!) and rich, dark coffees, to post-swim fish and chips and bowlfuls of fresh, seasonal fruit, to Little Missy figuring out how to pick the fresh peas from a homegrown pod and lazy bach days.

It gets more and more difficult to leave New Zealand each time but at least we’re not heading home just yet. Next stop – via a brief stop tonight in Kuala Lumpur – Vietnam! I’ve heard there’s more food to eat over there.

    I’ll have to try Bach at the bach for the next time, Martin! Not looking forward to wintery Irish weather after a month of sunshine, I have to say.Yes please to marmalade oranges! Stick them in the freezer and I’ll deal with them when I get home.
