Happy birthday to my mummy!!

So today is my mums birthday! So I make the cake every year using the same old sponge cake recipe… But this year I thought I’d be a bit adventurous and try a recipe that I always use… To make cupcakes. I know this recipe makes amazing cupcakes so surely a bigger cake version of it would be even more awesome.. Right? See my logic there? Well as it turns out… I won’t know until the cake is cut and tried… So here’s me with my fingers crossed! It came out a SUPER big but then deflated into a little flat cake.. One might also say it’s a little burnt. Oops.

But once it’s hidden that’s ok right? Haha

Watching it from inside our campervan because it was cold!! Nice and cozy inside on our bed! Hehehe

The sea side where there were fossilised trees!!

Then the crazy-ass waterfall you could walk right up beside! Dangerous so if you do decide to climb, becareful!

Image

 

And then off to Florence Hill, beautiful but very windy!

Image

More waterfalls!!

SO MANY SHEEEEEP RUNNING!

Driving to where we were staying for the night! The bay to ourselves!

Image

Image

By the lighthouse!

Image

Then off to the Speights brewery for a tour and free beer!!

Image

I thought it was a very good tour and well worth going if you like beer!ImageImage

Image

Then off to Cadbury’s World! It was good, but I think kids would enjoy it more!

Our campervan journey! (Part 3)

Getting excited about trekking Franz Josef’s glacier!

Image

Helicopter ride back down! It was good! but could have been better! No offense to the group we were with but if we had been with a younger and fitter group the guide would have done way cooler stuff like going through crevasses etc with us! He kept saying.. yeah it’s real cool in there, real cool down there, but we’re not doing that today. Grrr.. paid so much just for a 2 hour walk. So make sure to ask if the people you’re booked with can do fun things and not just walk. It was a bit annoying.

The mirror lake! Drove all the way out there and unfortunately it was raining and cloudy! Would have been cool though!
