Seek Adventure Travel Happy
Hello, Pat & Skeeter here. It has been an interesting week here. I got promoted to HR manager at The Lost Spring. I started this week, and it has been interesting and challenging so far, and I like it. It has been nice to have Delilah back for driving into town, we missed her. Pat and I have been taking advantage of having a kitchen to cook in. I made ANZAC biscuits (a traditional NZ cookie), and Pat has been making homemade salsa, bread, tortillas, and lots of good stuff. I found out that Absinthe is legal here, and that you can buy it at the liquor store. So I went and got some, and we tried it last night. I'm not sure how it got the negative history about it because it wasn't crazy at all. It is green, tastes like licorice and mint, and has a similar effect of regular alcohol. The back of the bottle listed some famous people who liked to drink it like Picasso and Hemmingway. I kept waiting for my artistic genius to emerge, but I guess I'm going to have to continue with drawing stick figures. It is one of those things that we can say we've done, but won't have the need to do again; So much for chasing the green fairy. Pat and I are starting to plan a couple of day trips and hikes, which will be nice. We have been loving every day here in Whitianga, but it will be fun to go out and explore some new places. July is typically the coldest month here, and it's almost over! We are so excited for some good hot days. I hope to have some good pictures posted of our new explorations!

Hi there! I'm Skeeter. I grew up moving a lot and that makes me a bit restless for travel and exploration. I started this blog with my husband Pat when we decided to backpack New Zealand for a year. We are always looking for the next adventure and are loving life. We're just your average couple with two sassy dogs and a love for travel. We're sharing our travels and the tips we pick up along the way.
Hello! I'm Liz. Blogging is very new to me, but I'm so excited to finally write as much as I talk!
