Our family here is so multicultured coming from so many of the different continents and countries that it was long over due for us to start sharing some of the places where we live. So the challenge is for us to start snapping pictures of where we live, places we visit to show our family and friends here! Please feel free as you post the pictures to tell us about your pictures. Is it it famous, is your favourite place you get the picture.

So watch this space folks for up coming postings! A little bird has told me they have some pictures ready.

Thank you Kisu for my lily, it was a lovely thought and your right I did luv it. First time I think that have ever been introduced to the country side of Hong Kong. Very different to the fast pace of the city and beautiful in its own way. So glad you shared your pictures with us.

I say there are some marvellous sunsets appearing in some of these photos I would hate to have to pick a favourite!

These are some pics of my street and some of the architecture around and also my kids on the first day of school lol.

ok the house that you see in the back ground between the two other houses is a huge mansion that was given to the city and is now nursing home called the good Shepard.
The living quarters are now the offices and upstairs where the board of directors meet was once the servants quarters. It's pretty cool inside.

This is just a view of houses down my street.

Another view of my street from my porch

PostSubject: If I you came to New Zealand    Wed Sep 19, 2012 5:27 am

I would like to show you some of my city Hamilton.

If it was winter we might go to a rugby game at the Stadium home of the Chiefs and Waikato rugby teams.



Then I would take you to the Hamilton Gardens (one of my favourite places). We could check out some of the themed gardens.

Like the Italian Renessance. A very neat and practicle garden most of the planting is pretty and can be used in cooking, eating or medicines.





Then we will walk through to the Indian Char Bar Garden which is planted out so that it represents the wonderful colours in a carpet.





Here is a lovely view of the Waikato River at the back of the Hamilton Gardens.




Ok time for a cuppa coffee or tea over looking the man made lake.



We then can stroll through the Chinese Scholar Garden and Japanese Continplation Gardens.







We could sit down and discuss why the American Modern Garden has two miss shaped boobs in its swimming pool!





The second newest garden the Maori Garden

PostSubject: Today we walked down to the river   Thu Oct 11, 2012 9:46 pm

Today is turning into a gorgus spring day and long over due. I took myself off for a long over due walk and headed down to one of my favourite walking places the river. I forget how green we are. I guess like most New Zealanders we take it for granted.

This first photo is the Waikato River which flows from Lake Taupo and comes out at Port Waikato. When the world seems so fast paced I like to go and watch the river. For the most it seems to travel at the same steady pace and reminds me that it reaches its destination no matter what.



This part of the river is a favourite spot for dog owners to allow their pooches to swim. As you can see two dogs taking advantage of it.



I like walking this part in the heat of the day, the trees offer great shade while walking by the river.



This last photo is just a part of Days park, and of course your proberly guessed it is used quite a bit by dog owners as one of the few places you can let your dog off its leash to run. But it is used by many people also good place to take a picnic. However be prepared to be joined by four legged friends.

These were the ones of the Netherlands, other pictures coming soon Razz.
And now some of my vacation in France:

Just a beautiful view.


Another one of the beautiful view. This one was taken from behind the church.


Lovely village, it was really hot that day. I was nearly melting there haha.


In the same village and a lovely little castle Smile












The sea with a lovely flower Razz




More flowers Very Happy




This is a picture of the American cemetry, really impressive ...


Le Mont-Saint-Michel Very Happy


Look at that lovely little castle/house! If I could buy it haha, I would buy it! Such a lovely place to live near the sea.

PostSubject: Autumn: the Netherlands   Wed Nov 07, 2012 10:31 am

I promised to add some pics of the Netherlands, since my other ones were deleted. I wasn't able to take some pictures, since it was raining every day. But it didn't rain at all today! So I decided to take some pictures when I cycled home from college. Here you can see what the Netherlands looks like in autumn.

This is our school chicken. Well, obviously it's not a chicken. but we just call it 'chicken'. And it has the name: Nugget. Today Nugget walked over to me when I was getting my cycle, so I took a pic.




























Some little mushrooms in the garden Smile

Your Autumn photos are wonderful Kattiee! Nugget looks a real character. Even with the wonderful colours in the leaves it still looking pretty green whether you are.

And since that day, Nugget runs to me every day after college. Have no idea why haha. But it's funny.
And thank youu siskisss Razz. I don't think they're edible though. Don't know actually ... Perhaps they are :O
