The last stop of our little North Island road trip was Hawke’s Bay. We travelled all the way from Auckland down to Kuratau, to Martinborough then Cape Palliser and then slowly made our way up stopping at Castlepoint. Our last destination was Napier.Continue reading
The next part of our holiday adventure is Cape Palliser. I’ve been excited to write about this because it’s one of my favourite parts of our whole trip.Continue reading
A few weeks ago we did a holiday road trip to explore the south-eastern side of the North Island. We planned a 10 day road trip and this post is part 1 of our trip. I really enjoyed this holiday and took way too many photos. I thought I’d break it up in 2-3 posts to really capture what we got up to.
This blog post will take you through our road trip from Auckland to Kuratau then to Martinborough.Continue reading
We just came back from a wonderful long weekend holiday in Tapu. The accommodation I booked for this trip was so amazing that it inspired me to write this post. I think it’s such a hidden gem so I wanted to share where we stayed and what we did.Continue reading
Last year was a big year of reading for me. I ended up reading 101 books and my goal was only 40! I wasn’t expecting to read a lot but we did have lockdowns and reading really became a habit for me. It took me some time to choose my top books but 2021’s list is pretty damn good.Continue reading
2021 has been a rough year. I thought it would be a better year than 2020 but the pandemic is still ongoing and lockdown hit me a lot harder this year. I’ve already posted what lockdown was like for me so I wanted my last blog post in 2021 to be a more positive one. I’ve put together the best parts of this year. From travel, experience, food I’ve had to best purchases, I’ve collated them all in this post. I looked back on the past year and picked out the good bits from this pretty shit year.Continue reading
I’m writing this on day 70-something of Auckland being in lockdown. It’s the longest one we’ve had and honestly, it has been quite a roller coaster ride. There have been many ups and downs during this time. I thought I’d write my thoughts, feelings, reflections of how this lockdown has been for me. I think it’s good to keep some sort of a record of what it was like during this weird time.Continue reading
In what feels like a blink of an eye, we’re over halfway through 2021. I feel like a lot has happened since my last blog post and I haven’t done a life update in a while. Writing this was also slightly therapeutic for me so I thought I might as well post this and it’s something I can look back on. This is a mixture of what’s been going on in my life, things I’m looking forward to and some of my favourite things.Continue reading
Back in February, we had a Christchurch trip. We were there for a wedding but I decided to make a mini holiday out of it as I haven’t really explored Christchurch at all. We had such an amazing time so I wanted to do a recap of it here. We stayed at 2 beautiful places and explored both the city and a seaside town.
