And Bend And Stretch...

And Bend And Stretch...

Yet another first today – laughing yoga. I read about it in Fiona Caulfield’s fab Love Mumbai guide book and rang yoga club organiser Mr Hirani yesterday to make sure it was on. It took quite a while for me to understand that it is indeed on not just yesterday and today but 365 days a year at Jogger’s Park which is not too far away from our hotel. So I was up with the crows (doesn’t sound as cute as sparrows, does it?) and hailed a taxi to take me there. My taxi driver knew exactly where to...

Still Lovin' It...

Still Lovin' It...

I can see why the rich and famous live in hotels – it’s fabulous! We’re staying at the Taj Lands End in Mumbai. Well, when I say we I mean the Ginger is staying at the Taj Lands End and I’m mooching off him. Why wouldn’t I? He is very excited because he gets two free pieces of laundry a day so is enjoying the giddy rush of having someone other than himself iron his shirts. This doesn’t happen at home. I, on the other hand, am enjoying having someone in white gloves bring me my dhal and ...

Mumbai, Here I Am!

Mumbai, Here I Am!

OK, so, depending on what country you come from, you CAN get a visa on arrival in Mumbai, but I’m not sure I would entirely advise it. I arrived in the city after a 16 hour flight in remarkably good shape thanks to drinking litres of something the pharmacist talked me into called 1Above which is a – oh, like I know what it is! It comes in a blue bottle and looks a bit like wees but tastes OK and (fill in the blanks) hydration. I queued at Immigration with the other passengers but when I got ...

South Island Here I come

South Island Here I come

Well, my dear sweet lovely little baby, The Wedding Bees, has finally hit the shelves. It's been a long time coming - my own fault but I do blame the fact that the day only has 24 hours in it and I'm a gal who really likes her sleep. And who writes two weekly columns and up until this month, a monthly one. And is always behind on her exercise. And her communications with friends and family. And updating Facebook. And her blog. Oh sheyoot: that reminds me, I have a whole other blog somewhere else...

Taste of A Woman's Day

Taste of A Woman's Day

A lot of the time I'm writing books or travel stories but actually my main job is a column called Date With Sarah-Kate that appears every week in NZ Woman's Day. I've been writing a version of this column for about 15 years - it's like a blog but from the dark ages before blogs were invented. For once I was ahead of my time, sort of, although not really, because columns came first. Er, anyway, it's for people who buy the magazine - a group of which I am obviously particularly fond - so it does n...

In Guilt We Trust

Hopefully the new pope will get rid of Catholic guilt because I can't take much more. I suffer so badly from guilt that I can't even skip a track on a CD because I feel bad for the one I'm not going to listen to. What has it ever done to deserve that? Apart from not have such a snappy bit in the middle like the one before it or words you can actually understand like the one after it? Some mornings I actually feel bad about stepping on my shoes, even though without them my feet would hurt. These ...
