  • Lovely coastal walk to the sandy beach of Scorching Bay. The Chocolate Fish Cafe is now Scorch-o-rama, but the pretty mural is still there.. 13:41:00, 2013-12-14
  • Back from the sea – couldn't have been a better day for it! Now trying to get my photos up on Flickr before seeing the 2nd Hobbit again. πŸ™‚ 17:49:06, 2013-12-14

  • Not asleep but on the phone with my Swiss medical hotline (ouch, phone bill), because the chest pains are back. Chiropractor, here I come… 05:53:21, 2013-12-12

  • Yay for chiropractor – feeling better & if I'm still in pain, she'll sneak me in again before I leave Wellington. Now nap time, I think. πŸ™‚ 15:44:33, 2013-12-12
  • Really nice to hang out with Rathy & friends @ Mac's. Early night for me, though, hopefully pain-free. *crosses fingers* 20:40:14, 2013-12-12

  • This morning I almost keeled over – no idea whether my blood sugar crashed or whatever. Not fun & it's made me later than planned. Oh well. 10:11:06, 2013-12-10
  • Just finished re-arranging next week's plans. Leaving on Tues to get the train to National Park, then Hobbiton, then Auckland. All booked! 12:10:16, 2013-12-10
  • The weather is gorgeous & since there's no time to go up to Karori Sanctuary before meeting Jisook tonight I'm back in the Botanic Garden. 14:50:26, 2013-12-10
  • Wellington 14:53:49, 2013-12-10
  • Dinner & drinks @ Mac's on the waterfront with Jisook. Aww, I'm going to miss her – hope it won't be another 5 years! 20:58:03, 2013-12-10

  • Decided to be prudent & had my toe checked by a doctor, trying to decide about the Tongariro Crossing. Will be in pain but should be doable. 09:57:11, 2013-12-09

  • Having blogged about next week I skyped my mom & realised that there is NO TRAIN on Monday, only Tuesday! And I really want to do that. Hm.. 21:26:31, 2013-12-09
  • Will have to go & plot tomorrow (because my free 4GB wifi here is almost used up, oops), maybe change some stuff around. Will make it work! 21:29:53, 2013-12-09
