In the middle of 2016 we packed up and moved from shakey Christchurch, New Zealand and put down roots on the sunny Gold Coast, Australia. Now we are settled, I’m hoping to get back into blogging a bit more frequently.
I strongly believe life is too short to have just one midlife crisis so I am usually planning a whole series of them, mostly involving travelling to amazing places with a smattering of Disney thrown in to keep my inner child happy.
I won’t say I’m a budget traveller, I’m more a mid-range traveller who watches my budget. Most of my trips are 2-3 weeks at a time… some of us have to work for a living 🙂 Speaking of which, I am an IT geek by profession and consider myself lucky to have a career I love.
I don’t get paid by anyone for any of the activities, meals, travel or other items mentioned in my blog so all opinions are mine and mine entirely. I am however open to bribery and will happily plug your product, restaurant, expensive holiday upon payment of aforementioned 😉
In terms of the name of my blog, I love socks, and I think I have a pair in every colour imaginable. During the Christchurch earthquakes, we were requested to minimise water usage due to damaged sewer system. I was startled to find I could go 14 weeks without having to wash a pair of socks. I guess there are worse things to collect.
I hope you enjoy my blog, I love getting feedback so please let me know if you like it or if you have a question about anything I post.
