Quick update

Just thought I would pop in and let you know that we are having a fantastic time. Taroko Gorge was just beautiful and reminded Al and I so much of the mountains in the South Island of NZ and Yosemite in USA. The food is another story - I am either going to lose heaps of weight because some of it is just foul and I am not game enough to try out the other stuff or I am going to put on heaps because we are going to be living on Ritz crackers and Oreos !!!!!
We did so much walking in the gorge and today K and I are off to explore on our own - armed with a map and the business card of the hotel - if the worst comes to the worst and we get lost, we will just call a cab and come back to the hotel that way.
There is so much to see here - I don't know how we will fit it all in but we are sure going to give it a try.
I hope you Sydney girls had a wonderful dinner on Saturday - I did think of you. Al managed to convince me that a massage and facial were in order - what a pampering session I had - 3 hours of absolute bliss - it was wonderful and I finally got my reward for getting to goal !!! Although Al didn't know that those two things were what I said I would reward myself with when I got to goal !!!!!
Well I can hear K starting to wake up so we will be off to breakfast (toast and cordial) and then out for the day - take care everyone and have a great week - I know we will be having a fantastic time because there is just so much to see and do here. Be good and look after yourselves !!!

SSSHHHH!! Don't tell Al about your reward and then when you get home you can have another one!!! Smart thinking!!!

Enjoy your trip and sounds like your having a ball. Be gutsy! Try the food. You might surprise yourself and actually like some things!!!

LOL. See you didn't have to worry about gaining weight at all.

We had a great time at dinner and are planning many many more so one of them should coincide nicely with a trip you are planning to take to Sydney :D

I hope you guys all have a wonderful Christmas together and I look forward to catching up on all the news, and photos, in the new year.

Thank you for all your support this year Linda. It has been wonderful and I am really grateful that we bumped into each other on this journey. M xx

Asides from the food (LOL!) it sounds like you are having a lovely time! The gorge sounds beautiful and the massage and facial sound like just what you needed.
We did have a wonderful dinner on Saturday, thanks for thinking of us. When you are down in Sydney, we will definitely have to organise one then.

Hope the rest of your trip is as relaxing and I hope you find some decent food somewhere, hehe!

Already you seem so much more rested. No stress - you're there, relax and enjoy with your family.

I want to be pampered for 3 whole hours!!!! Sounds absolutely heavenly. But I agree with Jodie, don't let on about it being your reward then you get another one.

Yep, I'm with Jodie too - although you could even get away with CHANGING your Goal Reward and getting something else!! Two Rewards - brilliant!!!!!

Glad you're having a great time, enjoy the rest of your trip :-)

Sounds like you are having a wonderful time and seeing lots of exciting things! Keep on having a great time, and I'm sooo jealous - I loved the Sth Island - all the rocks and cliffs etc so I can only imagine it must be beautiful where you are. :-)
Take care!
