Sister Meet-Up in New Zealand!


Hi my people!  Brian and I flew from Australia to New Zealand and guess who just happened to be vacationing there?  It's my big sister, Eileen!!!



She and her husband (my bro-in-law) are on the tail end of their NZ adventure, so we decided to fly over and spend a few days with them.



                                             Here we are lounging around on the streets.  


Tonight we are staying at a lovely bed and breakfast.  Here is the view from my sister's room.



Bonus!  A picture of my favorite bathroom so far!

More adventures are to come I am sure!  Thanks for traveling with me!

Looks like you are having so much fun! Cool that you could meet up with your sister while there. I think that bathroom might make me a little dizzy.

What fun.. that bathroom and the street sofa. Very cool that you met up with your sister and brother-in-law.

Glad to see a little 'chaperone-ing' for you kids. Better late than never I reckon... :)

Hello Betty,

We have just found you and have so enjoyed travelling with you down under. You do seem to be fond of a challenge which resonates with us completely. We have signed immediately as Followers to stay in touch.

In December of last year we made our own first long haul flight to South America and now the world has opened up. Although we have no plans to be in Australia it is good to follow virtually in your footsteps.

To find out more about us we are only a click away.

My jealousy just grows!! I made an internet friend with a French teacher who lives in Auckland, and I dream of visiting there. That bed and breakfast looks like staying at someone's beautiful home. (I hope my jealousy makes your vacation that much more enjoyable. And that's totally sincere, btw.)

I love the mosaic style with the bathroom. It looks like you are having a good adventure.

That's cool that you were able to meet up with your sister and bro-in-law. And that bathroom is awesome. We should implement such amazing bathrooms here!!

Such a cool bathroom! Did you take pictures of the others you've seen?

So nice to meet up with family in an unfamiliar land and share the experience!

Hi Betty - how wonderful you could meet up with Eileen and hubby ... while the 'toilet' is just such fun isn't it .. Is it a Hundertwasser one? Or perhaps styled after him .. he's famous in NZ for uplifting public toilets ..

Great to see though - cheers Hilary
