    New York

    December 9 in the United States

    Final day in New York, took it pretty easy and slow as I think the jet lag has caught up with me. Wandered the streets after breakfast on our way to the theatre booking office. We booked to see the musical “Beautiful - The Carole King Story”. As the name suggests it was simply beautiful. Funny, emotional and very entertaining. There were so many songs that I knew but didn’t realise that she had written them with and without her husband. Visited the HBO shop and purchased some “Game of Thrones” keepsakes.Read more

    New York

    December 7 in the United States

    Today we hopped on and off again on the bus for the Uptown trip. Visiting the East side, Harlem and Central Park. As it was freezing cold there was more “hop on” than “hop off”. Central Park looks real colourless in the cold, no green grass and no leaves on the trees. However, it is still an amazing amount of Park in the middle of this city. We had lunch in a true NY Deli today, the chicken noodle soup really hit the spot on a two degree day. Tonight in minus one temperatures we ventured out to see “Kinky Boots” on Broadway. The show was amazing, I loved every minute! I would highly recommend it.
    We finished the night off with traditional NY pizza for supper.

    New York

    December 6 in the United States

    Yes! Got to see daylight today! Bonus!
    Took the Hop On Hop Off bus for the Downtown route! OMG! It took all day with the traffic! Did get off to investigate Chinatown, Tribeca (awesome coffee!☕️) and the Empire State Building. The day looks beautiful with sunny skies but the cold was crazy, 1 degree all day!
    Also found a gem for my Black and White family⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️
    Went to dinner at an amazing restaurant, it was like tapas but with a twist. Lots of small dishes to share ranging from ricotta ravioli, stuffed eggplant with goats cheese, spicy meatballs and octopus bruschetta, just name a few. Our dinner guests were my travelling companion, Mary-Anne’s USA relatives. It was a lovely evening with great food and wine and very enjoyable company.

    RTW 2018 - New York

    December 4 in the United States

    This was our first day in NYC 🗽 A bit of a crazy start to the day, as we over slept and woke up at 4pm NYC time!
    Didn’t matter we got moving and spent the next six or so hours walking the streets and getting a feel for the place. It has been around 1-2 degrees for most of the night, so quite brisk.
    Our apartment is situated two blocks from Times Square, so we headed there first. It feels just like day time with all the lights, it is quite a sight. Then we made our way to 5th Avenue via Bryant Park. Here there were Christmas markets, an ice skating rink and another beautiful Christmas tree. Then we went onto to the Rockefeller Centre to see the Christmas tree and the beautiful light show on Saks Department store. We continued to wander the streets and made our way back to Times Square for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe.
    Back home at 11pm to try and sleep and get our bodies onto NYC time, with the hope that we will see NYC in daylight tomorrow, will need to st an alarm!⏰

    Day Three

    July 30, 2016 in Indonesia

    Yesterday was pretty full on!
    Firstly I met with the Tarot reader, Yorlunga. I had a reading for one hour and I was amazed at how accurate he was. He read past, present and future. I was glad I recorded the session because there was no way I would remember everything. It was quite an awakening.
    Daily pamper session was next, this time I chose a hair treatment and body scrub. My hair and skin were so soft afterwards.
    The rest if the day was spent around the pool and an afternoon 'nanna nap' before getting dressed up (Bali style-dress & thongs😝) and going for 'sundowners' (pre-dinner cocktails) at Finn's Beach Club.
    Then back to Bliss for another amazing dinner, Balinese Seafood BBQ.
    (Check out the photos of my sleeping cocoon!)

    Day Two

    July 28, 2016 in Indonesia

    My day started slowly, had a great 11 hour sleep overnight and felt good when I woke up. Dressed and went and put my order in for breakfast, banana pancakes/fresh fruit/yoghurt and of course a large coffee. Went chilled outside and my brekkie was brought out in no time flat (see pic below).

    At 11am I had my 90min pamper session for the day, today I went for an Aromotherapy massage, not as deep as yesterday's, but very relaxing and you finish smelling gorgeous.

    In the afternoon, I went shopping in Seminyak Square. My driver today was Putu. He took me wherever I wanted to go, ATM, chemist and then onto Seminyak. Got some goodies and had a wander around. When I was ready to return all I had to do was call Putu and he returned to pick me up. It's great that when you arrive you are given a mobile phone, with all the numbers you will need (hostess Esther, all the drivers and the kitchen so if you are out and about you can ring through lunch or snack orders), once again this is all in the cost of your stay.
    When setting up this sanctuary, they have thought of everything! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Day One

    July 27, 2016 in Indonesia

    After 15.5 hours of flying with no sleep I've finally made it to Bali and the beautiful Bliss Sanctuary.
    I was greeted at the airport by the driver, Ketut (yes that is his name) and driven 45min to the suburb of Canggu. It is close to a local beach, apparently only a 5min walk.
    Upon arrival I was greeted with a warm hug from my hostess, Esther and a cool freshly squeezed fruit juice from the cook, Vika. Esther and I discussed what things I would like to do while I'm here and showed me around the villas.
    The place is small but cosy, with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is fully stocked and Vika is more than happy to create dishes for you throughout the day. The kitchen is a communal area and as Esther said 'just treat it like home'.
    My room is spacious, with everything you could want, air con, tv, pay tv, dvd, aromotherapy burner, safe, king size bed and more. Each room has its own bathroom attached, I say bathroom as it is a full size bathroom not an ensuite. It is partially outdoors, so no fan is required.
    Esther had already booked me in for my first 90min massage after lunch today. The lovely Vera was my massuse. She worked wonders on my tired body and my swollen feet. Still a bit puffy but heaps better.
    So just chilling by the pool at the moment, trying to stay awake and reset my body clock to Bali time. I must admit I did nod off during the massage!😴

    Reflection

    July 24, 2016 in France

    I guess when I first booked this tour over a year ago I knew that I would be seeing the battlefields of some famous places that I had read about or been told about at school, (which was usually only a few days prior ANZAC Day and covered mainly Gallipoli)
    What I didn't expect was to learn so much more:
    - the individual battles within each offensive and how individual acts of courage can change the course of the battle
    - the conditions in which our soldiers had to endure and still continued on
    - the emotional connection you develop with each story about bravery, each memorial and cemetery you visit
    - And mostly the reality it brings with each and every family pilgrimage. Thank you to everyone who has allowed me to be part of your personal stories.
    It is all part of the memories I will take away with me and cherish forever❤️

    ❤️They shalt not grow old
    As we who are left grow old
    Age shall not weary them
    Nor the years condenm
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them❤️

    THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE
