Air New Zealand… customer service 10/10

When we booked our tickets to the Cook Islands last year we did not anticipate so many changes. But... and there is always a but! There were changes! Just a few more than expected... date changes, time changes and route changes... we can anticipate that booking well in advance would precipitate the chance of schedule… Continue reading Air New Zealand… customer service 10/10

Ahhh… the InterJet experience… not so good!

UPDATE: Finally gave up trying to deal with Interjet to change the dates of my tickets. It was a bad experience, and one I do not wish to repeat, I lost some money but learned a valuable lesson. The lesson: check every word of the fare rules and if there is 'anything' that does not… Continue reading Ahhh… the InterJet experience… not so good!

Take up where we left off…

It seems that the time flies too fast and that we get caught up in the swiftness of the current of life and sometimes we need to just take a moment to …breathe… inhale…exhale…repeat slowly.

Three desserts for breakfast? Why not?

The Chakalaka has a breakfast buffet that is worth sinking your teeth into every Saturday and Sunday (yes, read that which ever way you like!) If you like dessert for breakfast (as I do) then you may want to try a tangy lemon square, or maybe black forest cake, or a fluffy cheesecake. If traditional… Continue reading Three desserts for breakfast? Why not?

The Dusit Zoo in Bangkok

This is a massive are (about 189,000 sq meters) with a large animal population of over 1600 different animals. You can take the day and stroll around or hop on the tram and do a circle tour. Either way the zoo is always popular with kids (large and small) and never ceases to amaze me… Continue reading The Dusit Zoo in Bangkok
