Thanks to everyone who liked my last post on Auckland last week. It's the most engagement I've ever had on a post, and pretty much, that post got more likes than any other post I've published combined, so, yeah... thanks! 🙂 In all my recent posts I've tried to pin our GoPro video related to the blog post at the end, but I didn't have time to compile and edit the Auckland video until today, so here it is if you're interested 🙂 I'm also just finishing up my next post about our first day in Bali; where we went straight after Auckland. It will be up tomorrow, so stay tuned! 😉 Don't forget to visit our YouTube page too to watch more of our videos. They're not vlogs or me just chatting shit, I promise. They're more of a supplement to the blog (and something to keep Pete busy whilst we're away, since he takes all the videos!). I hope people continue to enjoy reading my blog!

We first headed over to Arrow town, a small town… Continue reading Day Trip to Arrowtown and Wanaka
Of all the things to do on the South Island of New Zealand, visiting Milford Sound was the top thing I wanted to do. It's really close to Queenstown as the crow flies, but to drive there takes about 4 hours. We set off really early and Rob drove us in his car. Simone even… Continue reading Road Trip to Milford Sound
Week 2 of our 3 week adventure to Thailand, New Zealand and Indonesia. Our 4 back-to-back flights later, we landed in Queenstown, New Zealand. This leg of the trip was really the main reason why we booked this flight; Pete's best friend Rob moved to New Zealand 5 years ago and he has only seen… Continue reading Wonder in Queenstown, NZ
