I’m currently sitting in Starbucks with a big old cuppa on a rainy day in Cambridge (not as hipster as it sounds btw… I came in to source some coffee and cake while the hubs runs a half marathon….#health), so it feels so lovely to be able to look back on our time in sunny […]

New Zealand Road Trip: Queenstown and Glenorchy

Well, here it is! The last post from our road trip around beautiful, beautiful New Zealand.

New Zealand Roadtrip: Fjordland NP & Milford Sound

Milford Sound has been on my bucket list for the longest time. It’s one of the better known sights in New Zealand, and I was excited to see it for myself after having stared photos in magazines, books, and blogs for so long! It’s strange, but I actually felt a little apprehensive as we drove […]

New Zealand Roadtrip: Mt Aspiring National Park

While we were in Wanaka, we decided to take a little drive to the nearby Mount Aspiring National Park. We were quite tired from travelling, so we decided not to take on any of the longer hikes.

New England Fall Roadtrip: The White Mountains

After spending two glorious days exploring Vermont (which you can read about here and here), we headed to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. We spent one day in the mountains and it was my favourite day of our ENTIRE trip. The leaves were so much brighter than they were in Vermont, and there were […]

New York City Part 1: Central Park & Midtown Manhattan

New York is honestly one of my favourite cities in the world. A cliché, I know. I’m really not a city person – I find them stuffy, crowded and stressful. You could say New York is all three of those things, but for some reason I just don’t care and always want to go back. […]
