One of the absolute highlights of our trip to New Zealand was our visit to Cathedral Cove, where we spent the evening walking the beach and exploring the massive sea cave. The sound of the ocean crashing against the rocks along with the fresh sea air were as restorative as any visit to a brick and mortar cathedral. We even cooked our supper here, enjoyed some wine and waited for sunset before being the last two souls to hike the trail back out in the dark. When sunset finally arrived it bathed this already stunning scene with heavenly soft pink light.

When I would reply “no we are going to Stornoway, on the Isle of Lewis” the inevitable strange looks and raised eyebrows ensued. Most people wouldn’t dream of travelling all […]

West Fjords Iceland

Iceland Aurora

We left Reykjavik early this afternoon after securing our rental car and supplying ourselves with food and beverages for one week of life on the road. We were still feeling really exhausted from the jet lag and synapses were not firing at optimal levels which made simple tasks like driving and navigating super challenging! We […]

Reykjavik Iceland

REYKJAVIK ICELAND It may be the jet-lag and it may be the Viking Lager or perhaps the wonderful birthday conversation I had with Dear Old Dad earlier today marking his 70-something birthday. He is so excited for my visit to Lewis and the reminiscing of times and loved ones past has emotions running pretty high! […]
