Leaving Queenstown was quite sad actually, but we had certainly maximised our time there and only really had 5 days in New Zealand because of where the flights fell. I think we made the right decision to leave Queenstown after just 3 days there, because it meant we have a full day in Auckland, but… Continue reading One Day in Auckland
Day Trip to Arrowtown and Wanaka
For the last day in Queenstown, we had originally looked at driving to Lakes Tekapo and Pukaki, but after a super long day of driving to Milford Sound the previous day (read about that amazing day here) we decided to have a more chilled day. We first headed over to Arrow town, a small town… Continue reading Day Trip to Arrowtown and Wanaka
Road Trip to Milford Sound
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
Wonder in Queenstown, NZ

Driving the Mae Hong Son Loop
Stage 2 of our Easter Adventure We left Chiang Mai on Tuesday morning after picking up our little jeep. We decided to drive the loop in a clockwise direction, heading first to Mae Chaem via Doi Inthanon; Thailands tallest peak. We set off and instantly discovered how uncomfortable our little jeep was, bouncing all over… Continue reading Driving the Mae Hong Son Loop
Cycling around Chiang Mai
We arrived at the airport nice and early and took our time eating some lunch and doing a bit of shopping before the first 16 hour flight to Bangkok. The flight was uneventful and we landed around midday the next day in Thailand. We've been here before, so we calmly made our way down to… Continue reading Cycling around Chiang Mai
Big Easter Adventure to Thailand, New Zealand and Bali… Are we crazy?
Since booking the flights for this trip and telling people what we are doing, most think we are crazy to do so much in so little time and ask why we booked it. The simple answer is that the flights were on a super special sale with Emirates and we managed to bag all the… Continue reading Big Easter Adventure to Thailand, New Zealand and Bali… Are we crazy?
Is everyone who writes a travel blog a narcissist?
Ok that's a bold statement, especially since I have my own travel blog, but it's a serious thing that I have thought about a lot because, I don't want to be, but I probably am... First of all, why do people write travel blogs? Having read quite a lot of 'about' pages and also thinking… Continue reading Is everyone who writes a travel blog a narcissist?
