Back in August, I booked us a long weekend staycation to relax and unwind. I found this beautiful accommodation located in Matakana and took way too many photos during our stay. I might as well share them here. Continue on if you want to know more. I highly recommend this place!Continue reading

Road trip holiday part 1 – Martinborough
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
Holiday in Tapu, Coromandel
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
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.
Hokianga Harbour Road Trip
A few weekends ago, we did a weekend road trip up North to Hokianga Harbour. In all my years living in New Zealand, it’s an area I’ve never been to before. I haven’t explored Northland much at all so I was really excited for our little weekend away. We managed to fit so much in and I had an amazing time.
After two lockdowns, life in New Zealand has started to go back to normal. Whilst we still cannot travel internationally, we can go anywhere in NZ for a holiday. Two weeks ago, we finally did our trip out of Auckland and we headed down to Rotorua.
This trip was meant to be back in August but lockdown 2.0 happened so we had to postpone it. The wait was well worth it though because we had an amazing time and it was a break we truly needed.
