Road to Mount Cook, New Zealand 1 comment

It has been 11 years since I last visited New Zealand, so a return trip was well over due. It would also be Veronika's first time in the country, so I was keen to show her why I love New Zealand so much. We only had 8 days for this trip, so I decided to… Read More

48 Hours in Melbourne

48 Hours in Melbourne 4 comments

Melbourne is a city that I took way too long to go and visit. I'm Australian born and bred and have lived here all of my life, but in my 32 years I had never gone to Australia's second largest (and some would argue, most popular) city. This year, I finally changed that, and I… Read More
