Two bloggers meet

Last Monday I took a day off work and caught the train to Wellington. The reason being was that my friend Doreen, (from Australia) was arriving in town. You may know Doreen from her blog. She and her husband were on the cruise liner Sea Princess which was in port for one day.
We had Wellington to ourselves 2 days before the world premiere of The Hobbit and the City was buzzing with Hobbit fever.
Poor Doreen, we walked all round Wellington, visiting Minerva and bead shops and craft stores. And then we visited the Hobbit Artisan Market where we enjoyed a lovely raspberry gelato!
It was a fun day and I don't think I've talked so much! It also felt like I was meeting an old friend, and not someone I've never met before.
She'll be home again soon, so pop over and visit, she'll probably have some photos to post too!

Thanks for a lovely day Doreen!

Back soon,

Lovely to see Doreen there with you Carole. I love meeting up with blogging friends from around the world. I shall look forward to hearing about Doreen's cruise in due course.

Wow what a fabulous day that sounds - green with envy.

By cooincidence I was sorting out a corner of my garden studio, and came across two albums of photos I took when we toured NZ in 1999 - staying in wild out of the way places.

It was a freezing cold and wet wintry day - so it was lovely to spend a bour or two in front of the fire re-living those magical six weeks

I've had a similar experience here in the States with a friend, actually two, who came to visit and I had one day with them. It truly was like we've always known each other just like you felt with Doreen. Blogging friends are friends in every sense so face-to-face is awesome.

Looks like a fun day! I recognize Doreen from her blog! Blogger friends are the best!!!

Hi Carole we just got back home today tired but happy.
Thanks for the great day--my knees ached all night from all that walking but it was well worth it.
I agree about felling like we been friends forever-but that's what blogging is all about.
I will show you the same good time if you ever cruise across the "ditch".

That sounds like the funnest day - I can only imagine what it must have been like having the two of you together. Wish I could have been there!

I have got to meet several blogging friends and it has been a wonderful experience. We really get to share each others lives and become friends. I love that.
