In other words: Vacation

I was just thinking today.
It’s eight years ago I was planning the vacation of a lifetime.
First class flight, treated like a queen.
Two months visiting Bro in NZ.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    And enough wonderful memories to last a lifetime and then some, I’ll bet.

    • Over a thousand photos and my journal. It was truly wonderful……. even the fishing as I’d never been before!

        One of those once-in-lifetime opportunities for sure.

      • It would have been lovely if Hubby could have come too, but he stayed home to look after Maggie.

      • fransiweinstein says:

        Yes, I agree. But at least he got to travel vicariously through all your photos.

      • I kept in touch and spoke to him every day via Skype, text or email. I kept forgetting the time difference and so his phone would ping with a text in the early hours of the morning as I sought to share the moment of dolphins swimming alongside the ferry and my whale watch trip. The earthquake threw us both as he didn’t know about it, yet I’d text him to say we were OK! He was on the phone to Bro wanting all the details……… not wanting me ‘pancaked by a bloody earthquake’! Oh it was great!

        Wow, what an experience you had. That part of the world is on my bucket list. I better hurry up 😀

      • NZ is a beautiful country, and I was lucky that my SIL is Maori and so took me on several mini treks. I covered her fuel and if we stayed over in a hostel, paid for our accommodation as well. I met some wonderful people and saw some lovely sights.
