The past five weeks have absolutely flown by and it’s been such a joy to explore this beautiful country with my parents. It all started with an emotional reuniting at Christchurch airport where Mum and Dad were waiting for me with plenty of hugs. We had a night in Christchurch catching up with an old friend who I haven’t seen in 15 years before heading off to pick up the campervan. It’s definitely the best way to see the country and also a lot of fun too. Living in one room all together for 5 weeks was certainly going to be an adventure.
This is my first travelling blog since leaving the Uk 4 weeks ago, and boy has it flown by. It seems like the right time to give everyone an update on how the adventure is going as tonight I’m leaving the beautiful Indonesia to head to Australia.
Our adventure started in the lovely little town of Canggu, best know for its waves to surf and many cafes. It’s 100% my favourite place we’ve been to in Bali beaucse of these such cafes. Sophie, my younger cousin and travelling companion, already knows the surfing basics but I opt for a lesson which gives me false confidence that I’m better than I think. The next day when going out alone I realise that without a huge foamy board and the instructor to give me a push I have no hope!

As some of you may already know, Mum has recently become a bee keeper and we now have our first batch of honey! Unfortunately for me I can only have it when my blood sugars drop but I can assure you it's absolutely delicious. Mum has written a few words below about the world of bees...
Last week it was 7 months since I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. After being flown home early from holiday due to being very poorly, Mum took me to the doctors and they sent me home not knowing what was wrong. Rather than going straight home, we called in at Leadenham Teahouse and I had a huge hot chocolate and slice of cake to try and make me feel better. This of course made me feel so much worse (whoops) and when we walked into the house the phone was ringing and it was the doctor asking me to go straight back in as he thought I had Type 1!
A week today I'll be 'popping-up' at The Leadenham Teahouse. My first thought this morning was...'what happens if we still have snow and no one comes!' But I can't change the weather or if no one stops by so I'm not going to worry. I am really excited for what the week will bring as many of you know it is my dream to have my own little cafe some day.
