A wave from the Winedown

Our Sweet Louise member Lynne Hanson shares her love of a road trip adventure and living for the moment!

Lynne says: “We have owned various buses and caravans for over 40 years and recently purchased a new motorhome to enable us to travel around the country now that I’ve retired. We’ve got solar power so there’s no need for campgrounds. We have everything we need on board – no packing or unpacking equals stress free holidays!

“We love being able to roam around the country with no particular plan – we just stop where we want for as long as we want.

“We recently returned from four weeks in the South Island (was supposed to be three months but we cut short due to Covid-19). The scenery was magic.

“We can’t wait to get back on the road to continue a nomadic lifestyle while I still can!

“To me living well means finding the joy in everything you do. Not focusing on the future, just being in the moment.

“You can’t change what has happened to you, or control what continues to happen, but you sure can control how you feel about it.

“I have cancer – but cancer is not my life. I’ve lived with this for 12 years and hope to get many more.

“It is not the time I have left that is important. It is what I do with that time that matters.

“Being a member of Sweet Louise has enabled me to meet so many wonderful warrior women who are living life to the full and I am so grateful to be a part of it. I look forward to receiving my vouchers each year. The team at Sweet Louise are such wonderful caring people and I can’t thank them enough for what they do.

“Big hugs to all our Sweet Louise community. Our motorhome is called “Winedown” – so if you see us on the road, give us a wave!”
