I no longer know how to answer the question “where are you from?”. From now on, I’m going with “it’s complicated“.
2016 was a big year – new country, new house, new job when we packed up and moved from shakey Christchurch, New Zealand and put down roots on the sunny Gold Coast, Australia.
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.
