The first few days in Borneo 


Well I’ll admit this week has been a bit of a challenging one! Mother Nature sure has thrown it all at us, with 95% humidity and monsoon rains….it’s been very hard to find our feet here in Kuching. That mixed with the girls not enjoying the very sweet Malaysian food, and the small local supermarkets having very limited supplies of anything else, well it’s definitely been tricky!  Continue reading

New Zealand it’s been great!  

Well what a truly fabulous 4 weeks we’ve had here is New Zealand! Such a wonderfully and friendly country with such diverse and beautiful landscapes!

We finally made it to our new Airbnb in the Barranco area at 3am local time, so we pretty much crawled into our beds and dropped off to the land of nod!  Continue reading

Joshua’s Tree National Park 


Yesterday we took the 2 1/2 hour drive inland from Los Angeles to our new Airbnb in Desert Hot Springs. We were told to pick up the keys from the apartments partner hotel, the Aqua Soleil Hotel and mineral spa, which was a short 2 min drive from the apartment.
