Long Weekend in the Abel Tasman Area

After having an awesome New Year away celebrating with friends and quickly getting back into the work routine, Brad and I decided we needed to go away just the two of us and have some good old couple time. Usually, when we are going away for such a short period, we stick to somewhere closer […]

Nusa Lembongan Travel Guide

We spent our final night on the Islands in Nusa Lembongan, which is the most popular out of the three and is definitely the most touristy one and you get the feel that it is more catered to tourists rather than Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Penida. Due to only being in the Islands for three […]

Nusa Penida Travel Guide

Nusa Penida is one of the most beautiful places I have been too and every photo you take looks like its straight out of a travel magazine. We decided to just do a day trip here and to be honest I think that’s enough time as it’s a lot harder to get around and lacks […]

A weekend at Lake Tekapo

We had Lake Tekapo locked in my Mums birthday in October, I was so excited as I love exploring places in my own country and I had only ever driven through here. It’s a small town thats about a three hour drive from Christchurch. Tekapo is known as a winter wonderland and it was perfect […]

Nusa Ceningan Travel Guide

Nusa Ceningan is a really small beautiful Island located between Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida, which is just south of Bali. To get here we caught the ferry from Sanur to Nusa Lembongan and then walked across the yellow bridge into Nusa Ceningan. No cars can get onto the Island so the best way to […]

Risk of DVT’s When Flying

First you might ask what is a DVT? Its full name is Deep Vein Thrombosis and I first got one when traveling from Bali back to New Zealand two years ago. I remember getting a pain in my leg and limping so I went to the Doctor and was told that I must of pulled […]

Sanur Travel Guide

Sanur is a relaxed beach town that was a nice change from the busy city of Seminyak for a couple of days. Sanur has the most incredible beach with lovely warm weather and the most delicious restaurants. We stayed here for four nights and I feel like that was the perfect amount of time. The […]

Ubud Travel Guide

Ubud is more of a traditional town that’s surrounded by rainforest and terraced rice fields, I highly recommend visiting here so you can see a different side to Bali. We decided to stay for three nights and I felt like that was the right amount of time as it allowed me to fully unwind and […]

A month in Thailand & Vietnam

Photography by Brad Winder Last year one of my big highlights was spending a month travelling around Thailand and Vietnam and I thought I would share it with you. xx BANGKOK Bangkok was amazing! We stayed here for five nights and I wished we stayed longer, mainly as it did rain a lot and I […]

Weekend in Wellington

I grew up in Wellington and it’s such a cool little city and I recommend visiting if you get the chance. I get to go up a wee bit for work but hadn’t spent a weekend up there since my sister’s wedding, which was over a year ago. This time I was going up for […]
