Mr. Suger and I planned to honeymoon in New Zealand not long after our wedding. With young businesses at the time, we thought it might take us a year or two to get around to. Fast forward and as our 11th wedding anniversary looms large (in August) we decided we’d better get the heck on with that.

Then our friend Fi mentioned she was having a 40th birthday bash and WELL. Game on. New Zealand, brace yourself, the Sugers are coming. Kicking off in Auckland, we are travelling a few hours for a friend’s birthday party, after a few days we will head off along the coast. But from there, we have no plans really. Free as a bird. But I’m open to suggestions in terms of things to see, to do and to EAT!

And wine, did I mention wine? Direct me to ALL the wine.

See how seriously I take making plans? They are all based on the best places to see pretty things, eat yummy things and drink Sav Blanc type things. I’m a girl with her priorities in order. I actually hope to lounge in some cafes and parks and write. Mr Suger has big plans for fishing and jet boating. And not for the first time I have to laugh that we work so perfectly together, him and I.

So if things are a little slow around here for a couple of weeks, sorry about that. And if things are super busy around here because I’ve found some exceptional wifi and am updating all the time, sorry about THAT. We’ll have to see which way that cookie crumbles. Fingers crossed for the latter option, there with Confident You launching on the 1st of June (before I get back!).

We fly out Friday, if I ever manage to get packed. I’ve been told I’ll need warm stuff. Won’t that be a nice change! Haha.

    That’s my home! Have fun. It is amazing. Are you going to the South Island too? Or just North? The SI has the best Sauv vineyards. But Waiheke Island off Auckland is amazing too.

    • We aren’t sure yet, to be honest. My Aunt is currently visiting friends in the south so maybe. And hello, if that’s where the wine lives then maybe that’s where I NEED to be. Haha.

  • Enjoy NZ and the cooler weather!!! Jealous!!!

    • Thanks Janet! Except I’ve misplaced my ONE decent jacket! I’m in big trouble here. Haha.

  • I LOVE NZ, we went there for our honeymoon in 2011 and I was back again in 2013. Must plan another trip soon. Have a great time! xx

    • We are loving it. I can see why people come back time and time again. We are already planning our next visit!

    Have the best time! My sister and I have travelled round NZ for the last two Christmas holidays. We hired a van and travelled! It was so so good! There’s a long road in central north island that just has winery after winery. If you’re a Hobbit fan, definitely visit Hobbiton. Bay of Islands is stunning. And the south island is simply stunning, Lake Tekapo is our favourite 🙂 enjoy xx

    • We are having THE BEST time. And yes, Hobbiton is ABSOLUTELY on my list. Geek girl and all. Haha. Loving how accessible everything is and the outlooks, well, STUNNING.
