Before we had children, my husband and I travelled quite a bit around the world (Europe, South America, Africa, Asia, North America). New Zealand was always on our bucket list, however because it was just “next door” we thought it was something we could always do later in life.
We finally went in January 2015 with our 7 and 10 year old children, and wondered what took us so long!! The scenery is spectacular and compares to the Rocky Mountains in Canada.
Time is one of those funny things that creep up on you. Before you know it, the first of your children have moved away from home and your youngest is about to begin their final year of high school. So to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary, my wife and I after 9 years of WorldMark Ownership took the family on our first trip overseas, spending 12 nights in amazing Rotorua, New Zealand. Holidays have changed a lot from the days where a bucket and spade would keep our two children occupied for an entire day at the beach. Thankfully the friendly staff at WorldMark Resort Rotorua lined us up with activities that would entertain our two teenagers while still giving Mum and Dad some time to relax and unwind.

My husband and I decided to take advantage of the fact that Christmas was mid-week in 2013 and take a week off from our business.
As we hadn’t had a real break since we went to Ramada Port Douglas for a week in July 2012, we were VERY ready to get away, but most WorldMark resorts we considered were already fully booked for Christmas. So we started looking further afield, and finally settled on Las Vegas – a place we have never really had any great desire to visit, but WorldMark Las Vegas – Boulevard was available and L.V is close to the Grand Canyon, so we thought, ‘Why not?’.

Hard to believe it was exactly 13 years ago that we set foot on Fijian soil as brand new Wyndham Owners, staying at WorldMark Resort Denarau Island. We decided to elope and have our wedding ceremony on the beach, next to the pool at the resort – just Ray and I, oh and a fantastic English couple, Rob and Ann that we met at the bar earlier in the week.

We have been Owners since September 2011. Over the last two years, we have enjoyed our stays at Port Douglas, San Francisco and Seven Mile Beach– home away from home, with friendly staff, great food and wonderful sightseeing.
We’ve all been there. All those exciting months of planning and booking, the packing and anticipation of things to come. Then the big day arrives. All the last minute hustle and bustle before you jump in the car and start the infamous road trip arguments. How long till we’re there? I’m hungry. My Nintendo has gone flat. But then you see it. The first road sign that indicates you are on the final path to your much awaited destination. Continue reading →
It was such a lovely time we recently spent at Wyndham Resort Denarau Island, even the renovations and the council works couldn’t put a dampener on the location or the staff at Wyndham. My family and I spent 2 weeks in Fiji and from the time we arrived til the time we left we were wanting to come back. Continue reading →
