Check out the posts from the week! They include a fantastic feature with Google Pixel phones that could save you on international trips, tips for great value with SPG and Marriott Moments, a new tourist tax coming to New Zealand, and more!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! This Monday did not go how I had planned! Some things came up that made it more busy than I had planned and when I finally had a chance to write some posts, my internet went out. 🙂 So, some things I had planned for today won’t be out until tomorrow or Wednesday (nothing ground-changing anyway!).
I have gone for a little over a week now with no running – and I really don’t like it! The heel is feeling a little better and I have done a few bike rides so at least getting some exercise in!
