Big Easter Adventure

The main reason for this holiday was finding a super low price for the flights. We flew from Manchester > Bangkok, Bangkok > Auckland and Auckland > Denpasar with Emirates for just £750 each!

The plan was 1 week in Thailand, 1 week in New Zealand and 1 week in Bali. I booked a few more flights here and there, planned to hire motorbikes and jeeps, but of course, made sure to leave plenty of space for flexibility and spontaneity.
