It’s up on Amazon right now. Right now. You could buy it if you wanted. Or, you could wait until tomorrow when it will be FREE for 24 hours! It’s been a...

  • Share The Love Potluck 6 months ago *Sponsored I’ve been a huge fan of NZ cook Annabel Langbein, for many years. In fact, I first met her at her Cooking School back in the old Strand building in 1990s Auckland, and later when I moved to the UK I drove 20 kms just to buy her cookbook from Waitrose. Yup, I’m a...
  • Wandering star 5 months ago I must have been born under a wandering star, for I’ve spent my entire life moving. From country to country, from city to city, from suburb to suburb. The thing I’ve learnt along the way is that any move, no matter how big or small compared to other moves, is a big change. Each move...
  • I miss you 7 months ago I went for a run the other day, without you. It wasn’t the first time, I know, you’ve not been able to run with me for a couple of years now. And me?

Wonderful writing and inciteful anecdotes. I love this blog, there is never a boring post. It's refreshing to see my home country through the eyes of Vix.

Vix has a wonderful sense of humor and I frequently squirt coffee on my keyboard when reading her posts. As a Kiwi adrift in the rain soaked United Kingdom I do feel her pain and love reading about how she's trying to adapt to England's soggy climes.

I love Vicki's take on things. She shares her experiences of life abroad in such a way that her readers are pulled in by her wit and personable style, as if we were tucked into her bag and taken along with her on her journey.

Vicki's blog is often the first thing I read when I wake up in the morning. Her humourous and insightful writing has made me cry, be uplifted, be inspired to do more in this world....and frequently made me laugh!

A Kiwi that claims Vegemite?! Us Aussies might as well take the Finn brothers and Pavlova... Setting that aside great blog with a wide mix of topics and discussions. I enjoy catching up on Vegemite Vix when I do my blog reading.
