LOVE the saucepan hot chocolate

I am about 10 mins from Wellington (North Island for those not NZ familiar)

I'd love to visit NZ one day. Seems like such a beautiful and unique land.

What's the most exotic (compared to your birth/living country) place you've visited? :)

I don't really remember by birth country (Germany) as I moved away at around 8 month old? Honestly I think it's a tie between Spain and New Zealand. NZ for its nature and life and people.. just it's very unique. But Spain also because it's like stepping back in time which is so much fun! Lots of old practices and buildings.. tiny little villages too.

How about you?

I haven't travelled too much, but I guess it's Switzerland. I visited a small skiing resort, Davos Dorf, during summer, and the nature is just so different from nature in Latvia - sky high mountains and all. The highest mountain we have is actually a ~400 meters high hill, but I had a glass of milk in the glorious height of 4 kilometers there, and it was far from being the highest peak around. :) But I wouldn't say that I enjoyed the Swiss punctuality and sterilie attitude in just about everything. Had a good time, though.

haha farmpony!!!

You girls are lucky!!! I've always wanted to travel! Unfortuantly. I live in NC, the farthest south I have ever been is georgie, the farthest west would be Tenn. And the farthest south would have to be Maine. I would love to travel over seas one day!

I've never had the chance to go to Wellington (besides the airport). I lived in Dunedin for a short time though.

I am glad I am surrounded by so many other saucepan hot chocolate fans!

Most exotic place... well the most different would probably have to be Vietnam. I loved Italy though, it was exotic not the in the way that the culture was really different (it was a bit though) but the sort of blend of the present and past that you don't get in Australia!

Hahahaha, FP.

I've never visited another country :(

I cannot stand the taste of coffee, ew. Hot chocolate is amazing when it's made right. With marshmellows. I'm also one of those that energy drinks don't work on so I don't drink them. The 5 hour shots work sometimes, but not often.

I'm desperate to ride. It's been raining here for the past few days. The grass is rediculously deep right now too, but it's super muddy under it.

It's days like today when I'm jealous of those of you who board and have arenas.

Now I want some hot chocolate haha

I am also super jealous of how much some of you have traveled! I would love to get out and see the world. I have seen quite a bit of the United States, and a small part of Mexico, but that's about it.

A few years back my parents went on a European escapade They visited France, Germany, Holland, the Netherlands, and I believe a few others. They lived in Germany when my dad was in the Army back in the 80s, and I am so jealous.

My husband is a big WW2 geek and he wants to go to Europe and visit Normandy especially, and Germany. I personally would love to see all the old architecture and learn more about the culture. And try all the yummy food I've heard about! I want to go to Italy, and possibly visit Sicily, which is where my husband's family comes from.

As far as giving your horse time off. Haha how about 6 months? I made the choice not to ride while pregnant, and now I'm almost 7 months. Surprisingly it has done a world of good for my gelding. He is calmer, easier to work with, and has enjoyed his time off. One of my friends tossed a saddle on him the other day, mostly just to show her colt its nothing to be afraid of, and he stood there. He was out in pasture, and could have easily run off. But he looked confused when she took it off like "Aren't you going to ride me?" haha poor dude.
