Place 72 – Day 1001: Vancouver, BC – The End Of Daily Blogs!

Today, we announce the end of our daily blogs.

It’s been an awesome 1656 posts, but now, we think the time is right to stop with daily blogs.

Why?!

Well, after this long of daily blogging, it can be a lot of work. Of course, COVID hasn’t been great for content and posting about work each day is fairly mundane (for both us and you) and difficult.

Don’t get us wrong, we’ve loved sharing our lives with everyone. For something that started just to keep a few family members in the know whilst we travelled, to something that has grown far more than we expected…It’s been awesome.

We now have all of these memories on a site we can visit whenever we want to see the awesome things we’ve done. That’s amazing.

What Now?

We’ll still be around & we’ll still post here!

We want to only post when it’s something exciting, important or interesting.

If we go on a trip, we’ll post, for sure.

We’re not sure if it’ll be daily, weekly, a roundup or whatever, but it’ll be something. We don’t want to give a specific schedule because we don’t want to put that time constraint on ourselves.

What you should know is that the content should be far more interesting, engaging and just overall better!

Goodbye For Now

We guess this is goodbye…for now.

Thank you all SO MUCH for the continued support.

Apparently 750 people follow this blog, and they’re just the subscribed people. 750!

What an insane number.

We’ve posted for over 1600 days in a row.

We didn’t miss a day!

We have had nearly 40,000 views on this blog. That’s another insane number. Thank you.

We’ve hunted for wifi to get the blog uploaded countless times, in countless countries. We wouldn’t change that for the world. That was part of our travel experience and it was fun (at times).

This will be tough.

For over 3 years we have had a daily blog uploaded, so it’ll be tough and weird not to upload a blog, starting tomorrow.

Again, we have things we want to do, and things that’ll happen throughout our lives and as these things happen, or we go to cool places, we’ll absolutely upload a blog (or some blogs) all about our experiences.

Who knows when the next blog post will be. Maybe tomorrow (though unlikely) maybe next week, maybe next month…

All we know is that we are so thankful for everyone that has engaged with us and our blog over the three years.

THANK YOU ALL!

We’ll see you here at some point, for sure.

Feel free to continue staying connected with us on our Facebook, or through each of our Instagram pages!

If you’ve not seen all of our blogs, we recommend going to the visited places page and checking out all the places! There’s some cool things in there.


We’ll see you somewhen soon.

Place 49 – Day 305: Auckland – The End of Hockey in NZ

We woke up at 09:30 and had homemade crepes for breakfast. We had strawberries and chocolate sauce with them, too!

Once we ate this, we both showered and then Curtis watched the Leafs game.

Whilst Curtis did this, Kim did some admin for our next location and vacuumed.

Once the hockey was finished, we went to Glenfield Mall to do our weekly shop.

Before we stopped, we did the usual and got a coffee from Little Things and Kim also got a chocolate peppermint slice.

We then did the shopping and drove home.

We got home and Kim made food for lunch, which is a homemade sandwich filler of chicken and bacon with mayonnaise.

Tabitha then came round and we headed to Curtis’ play-off quarterfinal game.

The game was a good one and went to a shootout! Curtis’ team were 2-0 up and Curtis got an assist on each goal, too.

After that, it went to 3-2 to the other team and then Curtis’ team tied it!

Curtis’ team dominated the overtime but couldn’t grab a goal, so it went to the shootout where the game ended with a loss. That is all the hockey Curtis can play here in NZ so now he had to wait for if he plays at all in the next location.

We then went to Carl’s Jr and got a burger with Colten, Sarah and Tabitha and then drove home and went to bed!

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
