New ZealandOur New Zealand trip is just two weeks away! We booked the plane tickets quite awhile ago and the trip kind of crept up on us. I just booked our accommodations about a week ago and options were a bit slim so I'm hoping we don't get stuck in some hostel-esque situation. I'm too old for those. As usual, we've packed our 8 days on the South Island with plenty of exploring and activity. Our vacations aren't usually of the relaxing variety, which is fine by us! We'll sleep when we're dead. We plan to check out the Franz Josef Glacier, Lake Wanaka, Queenstown, Milford Sound, Lake Tekapo, Mount Cook, and a winery or two along the way. We haven't booked activities yet, but we are thinking a cruise on the Milford Sound is a must-do, and I kind of want to try the Shotover Jet in Queenstown. Mainly, we will just drive around and explore, as I've heard New Zealand is pretty much the most beautiful place in the world. And don't worry, I won't forget my selfie stick this time!
DOC PizzaAs usual, we enjoyed some awesome food this weekend. On Friday we went north to Lygon Street for pizza at DOC. Lygon Street is known as the Italian part of the city, but the food can be hit or miss. It's a popular tourist area, so many of the restaurants are quite expensive but not necessarily that great. DOC is an exception. We ordered a salami pesto pizza and a margherita pizza and both were delicious. Zomato (formerly UrbanSpoon, which I liked much better) gave it a 4.2 rating, which is hard to come by!
My New Obsession
I am on a blueberry kick. When I was younger, I never understood why my dad thought of blueberries as a suitable dessert option. Ice cream? Yes. Fruit? No. However, I'm older and wiser and now very much agree that blueberries are the greatest thing in the entire world. Naturally, they're super expensive. Why can't I be obsessed with, like, apples? I feel like this happens a lot in life. I'll walk into a clothing store, pass a bunch of normal-priced things and then walk straight to the one item in the store that's a million dollars. Such is life. Anyway, here's what $4 got me:
Blog Update Coming!
I am in the process of updating my blog design, so stay tuned! I know absolutely nothing about computers and the one time I tried to make a small change to my blog layout I lost a bunch of pictures from old posts. So, I'm going to purchase a template on Etsy and have the seller install it, just to be safe. Exciting times!
