Favourite Bits | 2016

2016 was such a whirlwind! I feel as though I clicked my fingers and somehow its New Years Eve!

South Africa. Our holiday to South Africa has to be my biggest highlight of the year! It was absolutely incredible. Visiting a country that is entirely different to what you know is something amazing in itself but meeting a lot of awesome new people, Adopting a Chimp, Going on a Safari and Visiting Cape Town was something I will never forget. We only got back a little over a month ago and I already miss it so much! Take me back!

Graduation. Both Dietmar and I went back to NZ this year to take the last step with our degrees which was Graduation. It was a pretty cool day and a great moment having that certificate in your hand to say, Well Done, you actually did it!

Kitty. Our Cat has to be a highlight. She’s a highlight of everyday. She’s Cute and Funny and sometimes a Pain in the Butt, BUT we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Found a way to sleep underneath all the car parts!

Melbourne. I love this City. It’s nearly been 2 years since we moved our lives across the ditch and for me, its one of the best things I have done. It has changed me a lot, in many good ways and I am grateful to be living here!
I made a point this year of trying to discover more of the city and all its quirks, bars, food, coffee, gardens! It really is a beautiful place and I adore it.

Visiting Hosier Lane – Melbourne has some amazing laneways
Melbourne Royal Botanic Gardens
Found a flower shop with an amazing Cacti room!
Coffee Stops at The Abbotsford Club

Having some of my Absolute Favs visit Melbourne!. I have been lucky enough this year to have some of my beautiful friends and family from NZ come over to Melbourne and visit! I do miss everyone so much back home so it really means the world whether its for a stopover for 7 hours or for a week. It really has made my year seeing some of my best friends and showing them around my favourite city!
