Things I wish I knew – before I went into MIQ

After two years, I am back home (NZ) … well, nearly! Here I am day 10 of 10 days at a Managed Isolation hotel (Rydges, Auckland) and I just CAN’T WAIT TO LEAVE! There are a number of things I wish I knew before coming here – and so, with the time I had spare – I have whipped up some short YouTube videos that will hopefully help others out there!! (

A global hiatus from roaming – 2 years and counting

This post doesn’t need a significant amount of time focused on context setting – where I once roamed, alas I do not anymore! There will be more domestic trips in the future, as wanderlust is not just for exploring overseas, and lets face it Australia is big enough to warrant some time roaming its shores!

Also, there is the small sea change coming in relating to the environmental impacts of my travel, so I will also be taking air travel a bit more into consideration – a hard thing to do for one so used to just going.

Wherever you are, I hope you are safe, well and finding peace in all that is going on around us!
