Day 18: Post Thirty Facts About Yourself

As weird as it might sound to people who know me well, I hate talking about myself so I am not sure I will be able to get 30 facts.

I am going to cheat slightly and use some that I already had under the ‘About Me’ page.


  1. I am from New Zealand and am very proud to be a Kiwi
  2. I hate when people ask me if I am an Australian when I’m travelling – we have very different accents!
  3. My first time out of New Zealand was when I was about 27 and it was only to Tasmania, Australia
  4. London is my favourite city in the world
  5. I am constantly planning trips I would like to take

    This trip didn’t quite happen.. I did get to London (LON) & Copenhagen (CPH) but not to Dublin (DUB)
  6. I love airports and getting to my destinations.
  7. I hate queues and rude people
  8. I am right-handed
  9. I am the youngest of 8 kids
  10. I have six tattoos

    Just 3 of my tats.. I also have a fern, the Southern Cross & a daisy. The compass is my latest but it isn’t quite finished
  11. Sometimes I have a lot to say but often I don’t say it
  12. When (not if) I wake in the middle of the time, I struggle to get back to sleep
  13. I have a bit of an obsessive compulsive disorder
  14. I have had counselling  (not for the OCD thing!)
  15. I am good at organising people & events

    The Halloween morning tea I helped organised at work. There’s a rule, I do the decorating & everyone else prepares the food.
  16. My favourite dessert is Pavlova (which we all know was invented by the Kiwis!)
  17. I am struggling to come up with 30 things about myself
  18. I hate cleaning
  19. I am still (and suspect will always be) treated like the baby of the family even though I’m in my 40’s!
  20. My favourite play is Hamlet & I’ve seen about 6 performances of it

    My absolutely favourite Hamlet performance from 2010
  21. I’m not a huge Tom Cruise fan but I do love the Mission Impossible movies
  22. I like taking photos but am always surprised when people like them
  23. I don’t like the beach
  24. I miss my dad
  25. I have lived in Aussie for 14 years (I didn’t think I would last 1 year!)
  26. I currently have a cold (feeling sorry for myself!)
  27. I travel solo but hate taking selfies so there aren’t a lot of photos of me on my travels

    This is why I don’t like taking selfies.. I can never do them right – in saying that, I do actually like this photo 
  28. I have experienced an earthquake (actually quite a few of them)
  29. I was interviewed for the news in NZ
  30. I found this really, really hard!!
