Travel Bag Essentials

Last week, I shared part 1 of my Melbourne trip. That trip was my first proper time in Australia, first overseas trip with my partner and my first overseas travel since moving to NZ nearly 10 years ago.

We went to Queenstown last year but that was just a domestic flight that did not require going through customs and needing a passport. Our Melbourne trip required that and I wanted to be prepared.

The things above are what I had in my bag on the plane and what I consider flight essentials. Check all the details down below.

Travel: Melbourne Part 1

It has been nearly 2 months since I went to Melbourne for the first time. I don’t know why it has taken me this long to post it here on the blog. Thankfully my Melbourne memories is still fresh in my mind and I can still share my experience with you all.

I took so many photos from my trip so I’m going to split it into a few parts. This first part is my overview of Melbourne and what I got up to first. I did do a lot of shopping and eating too but I’ll save that for another post.

Travel: Milford Sound

This week’s #BlogGreatness theme is Beautiful. I thought it was a great opportunity to continue my Queenstown holiday travel series by posting the most beautiful place I have been to in New Zealand.

Milford Sound is breathtakingly beautiful and we had a once in a lifetime experience going there by choosing to fly rather than drive from Queenstown.

To know about our epic adventure, see below.

Travel: Arrowtown & Wanaka

This week’s #BlogGreatness theme is travel. I know I recently travelled to Melbourne but since I haven’t looked at the photos I’ve taken from that trip, I thought I’d continue on and write about our Queenstown holiday last year.

I already made a post about Queenstown here on the blog but we also visited Arrowtown and Wanaka. I will focus on these two places today. We rented a car and did a day trip from Queenstown.

See below for more photos and to see what we got up to.

#BlogGreatness: Queenstown

This week’s theme is Favourite Part of NZ. I have been calling New Zealand home for almost 9 years now and I truly love it here. This country is so beautiful and it’s also filled with lovely people. I’ve lived in Auckland ever since and I could’ve easily picked this city.

Queenstown is absolutely beautiful. I don’t think you can take a bad photo of the place. Everywhere I looked is photogenic. I was amazed that I live in such an amazing country and I want to share with you the best parts of our Queenstown holiday.

Day Trip: Up North

During the Easter weekend, we had a spontaneous day trip. We went to Matakana, Pakiri Beach and Omaha which are a bit up north from where we live in Auckland.

We were lucky the weather was nice and sunny and it didn’t rain until the afternoon so we were able to spend some time at the beach.

See below for some photos I took of our little day trip.
