My goodness me my last blog update was in 2013 !!!!

BTW im a 62 yr old tech freak as my work colleagues would tell you.

Still working as a Mental Health Nurse in a large Metropolitan facility.

I have been through several tech phases over the years. Been a member of Geekzone since 2005. Had early Windows portable devices in the early days.My favourite was the Imate Jasjar probably back in the original 2 G era. Then went through the Original Apple phase. 3G, 4s then changed to Galaxy Note 1 though 8. Finally last week have gone to the Huawei P30 pro for its camera Capability. I used to have DSLR in my past as my blog shows. Then used Portable Panasonic HDD Video cameras but have moved to purely portable cellphone options which I prefer for portability reasons. Have had very good experiences whilst over seas. If I want good video I tend to carry a GoPro 5 Black which is so versatile positioning wise. Im still into geocaching and use my cellphone with the official geocaching app or Geeoh live app which will be changing in a few months. I have also done some Munzee searches but this seems to be a dyeing sport in NZ.

Recently been doing the Overseas trips- both Several Cruises, Trafalgar Bus tours, Eagle Rider motorcycle tour in the US. Tazzie.

Hope too see folk at the next Geekzone Real life meet 18th May
