HAPPY NEW YEAR!! And I hope you had a Blessed Christmas too. After traveling for a month through some of Australia, New Zealand and Vanuatu I wondered what would you, the readers, want to see? I did not want to give you the typical holiday pics, and I did no DIY to speak of except… Continue reading No DIY, but still Interesting??
