Before we came away everyone had advised us that Vancouver and British Columbia in general was the warmer coast, the city with the milder winters.  So imagine our surprise to step off the plane into -13 degrees celcius and one of their coldest winter ... Read more >

Los Angeles & Disneyland

USA | Saturday, 20 Dec 2008 | Views [701]

During a brief trip home (and too brief it was too!) we turfed the summer singlets and shorts worn in the sunny Whitsundays for the more appropriate thermals and woollen jumpers required for a North American winter. The 13 hour flight to LA was good ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 20 Jul 2008 | Views [669]

After months of planning, in fact I think we were planning it before we even left NZ, Mum and Dad arrived in the Whitsundays.  With my little rental car I drove out to Proserpine airport to collect them.  As the plane landed and the passengers started ... Read more >

Anna and Jamie's Visit - March 2008

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 15 Jul 2008 | Views [1109]

As a few of you are aware we had two of our good friends come and visit us on the island for a week or so in early March. Anna and Jamie were on their way from NZ to London with a few stops along the way, one of which was Hayman Island, Great Barrier ... Read more >

A day in the life of us...on Hayman

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 8 Jul 2008 | Views [9905] | Comments [6]

Everytime we talk to someone that we haven't spoken to in a while they always ask, what is it like living on Hayman? What exactly do you do? So I figured that even though this is probably a wee bit late and that I should have written this months ago, ... Read more >
