Bring on the snow...

We are heading up to Lake Taupo for a long weekend. It's going to be great to get away from it all and especially for Stud1 to get away from work...

Wait, he's shaking his head.


That's right it's his company's KickOff - a weekend away for all staff from all four branches held at the gorgeous Wairakei Resort.

An all-expenses paid two night getaway for the whole family. There are children's parties, family activities and grown up parties along with a bit of business. They have even organised babysitters for the evening events!

We are taking two extra nights up there just to make the most of the area and because I don't know if we can make the five hour drive in five hours with Monkey... The other unknown variable is the snow - the direct route goes via the Desert Road. It is often shut due to road-level snowfall. Fingers crossed we get through without the delay.

It's going to be a good break before we build up for the move to Sydney which is looking firmer as the days go by.


  1. Wonderful!
    I wish you all the best! ;D

  2. Have fun. You are going to be moving to Sydney? I did not know that. I bet you are going to miss NZ. I can't wait to hear more.
