Road Trip Feb 2018 Part 3

It’s taken awhile, editing a slide-show with voice over is a lot harder than editing video, as you see me state in the video I was a bad vlogger and took lots of pics but no video! A full blog that goes alongside this video will be added shortly.

Part 4 shouldn’t be too far away! Transcript below video.

Enjoy!

This blog and video has taken a wee bit longer to get out than we anticipated, we’ve got a new laptop and a new video editing program so we’ve been on a bit of a learning curve in how the new program works.

This is “Part Two February 2018 Trip” and you can find the video at: https://youtu.be/EBQbrqFcY0g

Trying to get back into my “normal” routines

Rejoining the “rat race”
 
So I was AWOL last week, and for good reason I say.  The place we were staying has little stable mobile reception; that and I needed a proper break away from the hustle and bustle of constant phone calls, emails, blogs etc etc etc.  In all honesty it was a good break away and the trip we took, although hectic and energy consuming was exactly what I needed.

I’m supposed to be “taking a break” but I thought I’d check in.

A bit of a quick check in with a Vlog
 
 
 
I’m taking a bit of a “break” and taking some time out, however I thought I’d do a quick Vlog and let you know where things are at!
I’m being kept to a pretty strict “one hour every two days” work time so I actually take a bit of a break and rest so, I’ll update when I can!
A transcript of the Vlog can be found in the YouTube description.
Take care, thrive not survive and remember life is an AntnzVenture!

Alice Nash Memorial Heritage Lodge: Ruahine Forest Park
14 & 15 December 2017
 

I’ve been travelling so much lately for the Enabling Good Lives work that I was well overdue for an outdoors trip. Needed some time out but also didn’t want to push myself “too” much, so I headed for Alice Nash Memorial Heritage Lodge in the Ruahine Forest Park. A great trip out by myself.

Paraclimbing Trip: Part II

Competition Day 1!
Qualification Rounds
 
I woke on Saturday 19th of August somewhat nervous. I knew I would be a little nervous, after telling myself for the days leading up to the competition “it’s ok, you’re just going to go have fun, climb, enjoy it and promote paraclimbing” but my mind had other ideas. I’ve always been “sporty” and competitive and that part of my brain kicked in and the mental game was on.

Climbing NZ, Paraclimbing trip (I)

I have broken my Climbing NZ Paraclimbing Competition weekend into a series of blogs. This is Part I: Getting to Auckland.
