About khodges2013

Alan and I divide our time between our apartment in Christchurch, New Zealand, and our 11.5m Dutch Cruiser, Silver Fern, on the canals in France. We started out hiring and eventually bought our boat in 2014. The two summers lifestyle is wonderful and we feel very lucky!

    I feel for you with the bites . Mine are midgies – u don’t see them and they don’t respect repellent. Our friends got bedbug bites in swanky Melbourne hotel.

      Bed bugs are the gift that keeps giving. Just when you think the itches are finally gone, they come back again! The doctor in Dubai said mine reaction was worse than others because of the sarcoidosis/fibromyalgia immune thing. He offered prednisone but there is no way I’m taking that again if I can help it!
