WW: Guns n’ Roses Concert in Wellington


You know where you are..

You’re in the jungle, baby…

Perhaps you are familiar with that lyrics from a famous hit song. If you are, then you know who the band is. Yes, G n' R or Guns and Roses. 

When I was way younger, perhaps in junior and senior high schools, I grew up listening to their hits. I did have many of their albums, still in the forms of cassettes, which need cassettes players in order to listen the songs. I guess many of the millennials have no clues what the cassette is or how the cassette player looks like. 

But anyway, this is one of my favorite rock bands of all time (besides Aerosmith and Bon Jovi and more, actually).  Although we had watched their concerts while in Geneva back in 2010 if I’m not mistaken,  we jumped at the first opportunity to get the tickets for G n’ Roses concert in Wellington.



Originally we bought only 2 tickets for me and my hubby, but then at the last minute, my friends who were supposed to join us couldn’t make so we bought their tickets and went all together with our teens. 

We made sure they listened to some of those hits begire coming to the concert LOL. The band is obviously not on their radar but some of the legendary hits are easily found in many movies, games or Spotify.

Long story short, we really enjoyed the concert. It was my girl’s 12th birthday as well so we had mini celebration with sushi, fries and cold drinks, plus sing-a-long till almost midnight. 

Here are some photos we took during the concert and you can see we did have a blast in there.

Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World and Friends

Welcome back and happy to have you here.

Holiday season is really in the air and although New Zealand will enjoy a hot, summery Christmas and our family don't celebrate Christmas, I can see the sparks of joy and happiness here and there. I saw the lovely Christmas decorations everywhere and they have Christmas Tree festival in the airport. Many of them are so cute and lovely, like the one I took picture of here. It's really heartwarming when personal works like the drawings and portraits here radiate love and happiness.



 I am still thinking what to do for the upcoming holiday. We might have 4 days off during Christmas and camping might sounds like a good idea. I will get back to you with more updates soon. I hope we can actually go camping and enjoy the beauty of New Zealand with the Frakarsas. How about stargazing? Sounds perfect for lovely summer days here.

Hopefully we go back to Queenstown soon..

WW: Welcoming myself to Queenstown, New Zealand

Welcome to Queenstown, New Zealand
Welcome to Queenstown, New Zealand

Kia ora!

Hope everyone is happy and healthy wherever you are.

Welcome to Queenstown, New Zealand


I have just visited one of the jewels of New Zealand, one of the most wanted (if not the most famous) destinations in Aotearoa. Can you guess? Yes, Queenstown it is!

Listed as one of the most beautiful cities in New Zealand and dubbed as the adventure capital of New Zealand, Queenstown is beautifully surrounded by mountains, lakes, rivers, valleys and more jaw - dropping landscapes. With this blessed nature, Queenstown has been famous as the 'adrenaline hub' in the South Island. Well, from walking and hiking to the top of the South Alps, going down hills in snowy slopes, taking the funicular up and sliding down the luge, to mountain biking, paragliding and more, you get them all here.

Well, I visited this lovely city only for three days and its's a business trip as well. I only limit myself to enjoy the beauty of Lake Wakatipu, Arrow town and the city.


Welcome to Queenstown, New Zealand

So here it is... me welcoming myself to Queenstown, New Zealand.

Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World and Friends

 Welcome back and December is here!

I know time really flies and last week of November 2022 marks our 1-year anniversary of staying in Aotearoa! Yaaay! 

Cheers from Queenstown..

It has been a very colorful year and we, the Frakarsas, have indeed so much to be grateful for. In the course of 1 year, we have moved to 2 houses (yes, I know.. we didn't think it will be this way but reality shows otherwise), traveled to 10 cities ( I guess more) in New Zealand, and enjoy living surrounded by the amazing landscapes as well as outdoor activities. This year, I was lucky enough to visit the Cook Islands and Rarotonga are added to my new list of countries and cities visited. Super happy for sure. I hope 2023 will be even more awesome and I already have a lot of plans in mind. 

We are planning to start the year with a little road trip in the South Island. Hopefully we can fly from Wellington to Christchurch and from there, heading down south from there. We have Canterbury, Franz Joseph glacier, Lake Tekapo, Queenstown, Milford Sound, Otago, Dunedin, and Invercargill. Okay, that sounds so ambitious for sure with only 12 days but even writing it gets me super excited. Wish us heaps of luck and tons of health so we can realize all these plans.


Say hi to the Remarkables..

I got a little taste of the South Island beauty as I visited Queenstown for about 3 days. I will share more but for sure, you, too, can see some shots from Queenstown and tell me what you think about it.

Now, ready for Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World and Friends? More wonderful links are waiting and I know you can't wait to check out these cool links. Enjoy!
