Don’t Cry for Me Cervinia…

Just a quick update since it’s been a while and a lot of you are asking…  We just got back from mid-term vacance.  Yes, another two weeks off at school.  Vive la France! The first week we set off for

Amongst the Rice Paddies

On our last night in Indonesia, about 5 weeks after our arrival, I dreamed deeply.  I dreamed of rice.  It was puffy, white.  It fell slowly – like large flakes of dry snow during winter. Ever so softly the rice

G.O.R.E.

This is our Great Ocean Road Experience. Coming from Wall Street I guess it is fair to say that Armon and I are used to managing risk – to the upside and the downside.  What else can you say about

Ready to roll around Melbourne

The Tan and Other Things to Do in Melbourne When You’re Dead…

We ultimately visited three of the larger cities in Australia.  Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.  From my vantage point, Sydney is the most well-known and was truly the metropolis I expected.  Be it television, movies or some sort of formal education

Main Beach sand castle

Loosa Noosa

Noosa was the perfect antidote to Sydney. The somewhat sleepy beach town is located about 140 km north of Brisbane and 1,000 km north of Sydney, along the Sunshine Coast. I wasn’t sure what to expect with Noosa, but I

Sex, Shopping and Sightseeing in Sydney

Let’s handle these in reverse order. And first, let me set Sydney’s stage.  We flew in from Queenstown via Christchurch and landed around dinnertime in Sydney.  Once back on the ground we went through our normal routine of getting our

Walking to the beach

Popcorn

The morning we left Wellington is the morning that Katie left Wellington for St. Lucia (with 3 kids in tow).  Under the age of 6.   By herself, solo-parenting.  4 flights.  36 hours.  Either stupidity or sainthood comes to mind…I’m leaning

It is time to get on with our story.  Enough lingering over Hawkes Bay and our interlude with this lovely, character rich but (admittedly) simple way of life.  For those of you who have asked, no we haven’t bought a

Help me!

Turkey Boy

City boys never cease to amaze me.  My husband in particular. Although he’s athletic, he’s not a crazy “heli-anything” type of daredevil.  He used to shower before he went for a run – so he would start off fresh and
