Lonely Planet’s Immersive HQ

We spend a lot of our lives at work, in the office, so workplaces are becoming more conscious about making workspaces fun. At the same time, companies want to be on brand, for their workplace to represent the type of work that they do.

New Zealand: New Plymouth

The Mon's Adventure in New Zealand recap is finally here! Over our short Christmas break, The Adventouriist and I decided to go somewhere not too far to do a bit of camping on the North Island in New Zealand.

It is also supposed to be tinged slightly pink in some lights so we had one last chance to try and see a pink lake. It was a little less than 2 hours from ...

So much that we were afraid one step outside would lead to a sudden swoop, but this wasn't the case luckily. Lake HattahWe utilised the BBQ shelter for our breakfast not far from the main lake where someone had left ...
