Zipidy do da zipidy day my oh my it’s a beautiful day………
Big celebrations today – well ok not really but totally stoked just the same and maybe we’ll go out for dinner but today we’ve had Breakers for nine years – nine whole years Wahoo!
Moved here from Queenstown back in 2004 and after a couple of days hands on to feel my way around, on the 18th of October the previous owners moved out and left me to it.
Total learning curve but when you live with paradise at your doorstep the mountains you think you have to climb turn out to be just little manageable bumps.
Breakers has given us the opportunity to meet some of the most wonderful people from all over the world. Considering we deal predominately with the international market, many of our guests have returned – some three or four times. That is a big ask to come back to NZ let alone come back to stay with us, with so much of the country to see. Many of our guests have become our friends and we keep in contact via email or Facebook – the power of the internet – it to can be a wonderful thing.
We have also made some wonderful friends through working in the Tourism Industry and discovered some wonderful things to see and do on the West Coast. Lastly but by no means least Stephen and I met after my move to the West Coast and were married so guess that would never have happened either. Definitely a cause for celebration.
Wherever you are – wishing you a fantastic day and hope one day you get the opportunity to:
“come share our little slice of paradise”
