Eats, rides and city living (and now earthquakes!)
This post is an introduction since the folks at Wellingtonista have kindly invited me to join their merry band (and I now have an unexpected day off since the office is closed).
So a little about me …. I LOVE Wellington, food, events, eating experiences, movies, solo Saturday morning wanders, soaking up the city vibe, hanging out with friends, exploring, misty mornings, sunshine, the water….asleep yet?
I’m also a food tour guide for Zest Food Tours of New Zealand, a motorcyclist (road not track), I dabble in nutrition (including a blog of -hopefully – simple information and thoughts), have a Wellington eating blog (started as a repository for myself once upon a time), belong to the NZ Food Writers Guild (purely for interest) and work in the corporate world several days a week (to pay the bills!).
I live on the Terrace to enjoy the city and all its offerings with ease, and share all that with a hubby and several teenage step-kids who come and go.
On a fine summer’s day you might find me riding in the Wairarapa (if I haven’t managed to scam a few more days off for a longer ride), hosting guests around the city, soaking up the sun with a book, or wandering the waterfront.
On a moody winter’s day you might find me tucked up at a movie (yay for the International Film Festival about to begin!), reading the weekend paper at a café (or new Capital magazine just excitedly discovered) with
hands firmly wrapped around a delicious hot drink, enjoying a stormy invigorating walk around the coast, or catching up with friends over lovely food and wines.
To leave you today, I figured I’d share my delicious Saturday morning snack at the Boat Café this weekend gone (before all the excitement), enjoyed while watching the misty morning slowly clearing away to reveal a brand new day…
