Into the forest

Forest, no longer...

Up first in this ‘into the forest’ challenge has got to be the awesome giant fern forests of North Island New Zealand. As a scot I thought I had seen big ferns! No way, these things get even more rain than Scotland and it’s like the day of the triffid walking through them- just fabulous. Colorado had to feature as, well, you know, it just had to feature if you are talking majestic forest- we have had a couple of stunning train trips through Southern Colorado – soaring eagles, water in the rivers (that’s a novelty in Arizona!) and amazing trees.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. Thank you, vasilis, I appreciate your comment and the ‘follow’. I thought New Zealand was amazing in all sorts of ways, just a shame it is so far away from Europe.


i'd love to hear from you...
