Queenstown is well known as New Zealand's premier winter playground and the ski capital of the country. When we visited in late spring, the ski season had just finished, with little to no snow fall in the last couple of weeks of the season. As such, the ski resorts were closed down when we arrived… Read More

I'm currently in training mode again for another trip to the Nepal Himalaya in a couple of month's time, so I've been regularly hitting the trails around Brisbane again. One of my favourite areas to go hiking within an easy drive of Brisbane is Mount Barney National Park. There are some good, variable trails there which… Read More

Panorama: Lindis Pass, New Zealand

1 comment

Today's travel photo is a panorama shot of the Lindis Pass in Otago on the South Island of New Zealand. Travelling from Mount Cook, the road to Queenstown crosses over this spectacular pass. The barren brown tussock grasses of this region are a vast contrast to the lush greens that otherwise seem to cover New… Read More

A Sunday Outing in Brisbane

7 comments

I’ve been living in Brisbane for most of the past decade, but I’ve always lived more in the outer suburbs, so heading into the city for the day really still has that feeling of a proper day trip out. It’s kind of an old school thing, but for us it is exciting to get dressed… Read More

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

Lake Pukaki in New Zealand

Today's travel photo is of Lake Pukaki, looking north towards a cloud covered Mount Cook on the South Island of New Zealand. You may think that I have photoshopped the hell out of that lake, but I actually haven't. Lake Pukaki really is that beautiful colour, having being fed from the melt water from the… 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
