Day trip to middle earth [The Travel Diaries]

It’s 6.30 am, Im crawling out of bed, I brush my teeth, put my hair up in a ponytail and wash my face. I wake up le boyfriend for him to do the same, trying not to jump to the bed containing my excitement. We are going on an adventure!

Let’s say Le boyfriend is a bit obsessed with Tolkien, he read the whole lord of the rings trilogy, the hobbit, we have the three “extended versions” of the film, and went to see The Hobbit (an unexpected journey) twice, I don’t feel so fondly of all the saga as him, but I get excited nonetheless. So naturally have been living in New Zealand for over a year, we had to go to Hobbiton.

One month down, eleven to go…
Im pretty pleased with myself, I promised I would write at least 2 post per week and I kept it.

Books: The faults in our stars  by John Green & The book thief  by Markus Zusak
Travel: More beaches, Matamata (Hobbiton)
Projects: Redesign my personal website
Health: Less coffee, more water. Stay away from the chips!
Fitness: Start running aging set my goal to 10K

Do you have any TO DO things for this month or have something to advise?
