‘Aitutaki Community Cat Project’

Cats, cats, and more cats... The 'Aitutaki Community Cat Project' is a group of veterinarians, vet techs, nurses, and helpers who have been coming to Aitutaki for the last couple of years to de-sex local and feral cats on the island.

Amazing Aitutaki

There are few places in the world where we can say we have had a better welcome than Aitutaki. We were met at the airport by Trip, a lovely lady, who took time from her day to help out a friend. She was just bubbly and full of life, regaling us with tales of the… Continue reading Amazing Aitutaki

Club Rora Sunday Bar-B-Que at Rumba

Well, we decided not to 'go out' for dinner and instead try the Rumba beach front restaurant for the Sunday bar-b-que and it was not a mistake.

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. This is a listing of what is coming to the ‘fill-in-the-blanks” section over the past year. Some of these travels… Continue reading Take up where we left off…

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

Back to Beautiful Bangkok….

Ahhh... the time we had with great people, great food and wonderful travels! But, all good things must be remembered and we have the pictures to prove it. The road back to Bangkok was long and some what arduous, miles in the bus, and crossing boarders without washrooms. We really enjoyed our time together with… Continue reading Back to Beautiful Bangkok….

So Many Wats

The main highlight of our Cambodia Tour was our visit to Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is an experience that you must have! It is truly incredible, beautiful and awe inspiring!
