Summer Holiday

This year for my summer holiday, my wife, son and I drove up to the top of the Coromandel Peninsula where my wife's uncle owns a farm. From there, we spent the week scuba diving off Little Bay, walking around the farm, and relaxing in the sun.

When we went away I chose not to take my laptop, so I could not spent anytime in front of the computer (I often do spent too much time!). We also never turned the television on, so we instead spent the evenings sitting around having a few drinks, talking and telling tall stories.

Although in my last post I talked about the top five party spots to spend New Years eve at, I'm afraid I wasn't near any of them. Instead New Years eve was a barbecue and a few quiet drinks with family and friends. A peaceful but enjoyable way to start 2007 in New Zealand.

YAY! he´s back =)
Sounds like a wonderful holiday. I confess I´m a bit jealous about the scuba diving... but just a tiny little bit!
It´s so nice to hear you´ve had a great time!

Hmm. Isn't that funny that it's summer there? Right now it's freezing in Pennsylvania. I wish I were where you are.

...Suffering from a severe case of low motivation to update this and my other blogs. Not given up, just on a 'long holiday' as you say. I hope to be back in the swing of it soon. In fact, I'm thinking of writing an article titled "Motivation, depression and Balance."

Thanks for stopping by BB.
