Place 72 – Day 472: Vancouver, BC – Big Chillin’

We woke up around 10:30 and Kim made some incredible crepes!

We watched some TV whilst eating and then got ourselves ready.

Kim ready a bit of a book to relax for a bit and then we went out for some coffee!

We went to a place we didn’t even know existed about 5 minutes from our apartment which is called Angus T.

Whilst we went for coffee, they also make European croissants, so we had to try them! Curtis got a standard butter croissant and Kim got a pain au chocolate.

We really, really enjoyed the croissants and the coffee was pretty good too, all in all, a successful stop.

We did our usual walk to the beach, but there were quite a lot of people walking around there, so we left and headed back home.

Kim got some more incredible sunset photos, though!

Other than that walk, we did very little. We got some laundry done, and we had a nice nap and then it was dinner time!

We had excellent homemade mac and cheese and watched the animated Grinch film, which we quite enjoyed, and it was nice and short.

We played some games and did some more laundry, as well as watching some more TV.


This Time Last Year!

Place 63 – Day 2: Queenstown – River Bodyboarding

Curtis and Maggie both woke up with colds this morning!

We all had croissants for breakfast and then Tom & Kim went out to do some river bodyboarding.

The river bodyboarding was a 4+ hour trip in which they had to drive down to Queenstown, get picked up by a bus and get driven out to a river. Kim and Tom ended up being with an American family, but their guides were very good!

They eventually got to the river and were told that they couldn’t use the GoPro, which was a shame, so we got no footage of the event.

The first go was a bit more difficult as they had to get used to it, but on the second run it was much easier and it was all a lot of fun!

Once completed, there was a small snack area with musli bars and juice and then they had to get back on the bus. The bus took a very long time to get back to Queenstown and once back there, they went to the supermarket and then back home.

Whilst Kim and Tom were out, Curtis and Maggie chilled. Curtis got a lot of visa related things done and watched hockey.

When everyone was home, we had salad again for dinner and watched a bit of TV. All of a sudden, it was 22:00 so we all headed off to bed. Tonight is our last night in Queenstown but we have some fun planned tomorrow!

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
