Hiking In New Zealand – Easy Jaunts

Hiking in New Zealand is a life affirming event and we made sure we latched on to a life well lived with these easy jaunts in both the North and South islands.

Fox Glacier Heli Hike


Lake Ann Brewing Co.

Our chant, “Open, Open, Open” kept time with the sleet hitting the windshield while we waited in the car for the for Lake Ann Brewing Company to open. Our chant worked! Not only did the doors open but we got a very special treat. 

Iron Fish Distillery Tour

The Iron Fish Distillery Tours are a bargain at $10 a person. Not only do you get a history lesson, a demonstration of their soil-to-spirit process, and a guided tasting of their fine spirits but also a motivational experience.  

Cairngorms National Park Road Trip

Our road trip through the Cairngorms National Park opens in St. Andrews and ends with a selfie in front of the Royal Family’s Scottish home. Sandwiched in the middle we explored Dunnottar and Balvenie Castles and the Elgin Cathedral.  

Quincy Mine Tour in Hancock Michigan

Just north of Hancock, Michigan in the heart of the Keweenaw Peninsula is the Quincy Mine. It’s been closed over 70 years, but tours are available. During our 2017 Michigan Tour, Chuck convinced me it was time to slay my fears and journey nearly one mile into the side of a hill and explore a bit of history.
