It’s been another four months since my last blog post. Apparently I post on a tri-annual basis. I don’t know what that’s about. I would like to post more but I’m better at making excuses and watching Netflix than I am writing blog posts. But not today. Today I finish a blog post!
Over the Christmas break I traveled back to the States for a much needed holiday with friends and family. Back to my home, favorite restaurants, recognizable street names and… Winter, again. Flying back to New Zealand marks my fourth winter in a row. As much as I would love your pity, you can save your energy; I actually prefer the colder weather. I’m useless in the heat. If I had it my way I’d wear my paper-white skin forever. Luckily, I do get a few weeks of summer in between to refill my vitamin D reserves.
During our stay Tra and I travelled around Washington and Oregon state to visit friends and family. We had a great time catching up with everyone! Our only regret is that we didn’t have more time.
One week in January we travelled back to Long Beach, WA, one of our favorite places. While I was in Dunedin I kept daydreaming about returning when I should have been listening to lectures. So we were very excited to hop into our car and drive to the beautiful Washington Coast!
We visited the Astoria sea lions, the charming Oysterville and our favorite restaurant all while snapping some photos along the way. Unfortunately I lost about 200 of these photos in a tragic boneheaded tech accident. After beating myself up a bit for making such a silly mistake I was able to salvage a few good ones.
I have a few other trips I’d like to blog about again very soon, so watch out for some photos of our trip to the San Juan Islands and our weekend away in Waiheke Island, NZ.
Thank you for reading! x
