New Zealand: Auckland

After drying off from Black Water Rafting and eating the provided warming soup and bread, we embarked on a 2.5 hour drive to Auckland. Driving in the inner city area didn't phase us too much. Compared to Melbourne CBD, it was much easier! We stayed at Econo Lodge, which was adequate for a night or two, and that's all ...

Mission #5: Farewell Tassie

So I wrote about my last adventure in Tassie but I haven't mentioned a lot about the campervan sites! I wrote an article about top reasons to campervan the state here.

It seems this way because of lack of staff. This means on our second day, we had some time to spare after finishing Port Arthur quite quickly. First we ...

Mission #5: Port Arthur

Finally, my Tasmania posts continue! The last place we left off was Freycinet National Park. Our next stop - Port Arthur, recently named the top Major Tourist Attraction at the 2014 Australian Tourism Awards. Tucked away in the Tasman Peninsula (south-west corner of Tassie) you wouldn't expect such a win from this ...

My Thoughts A Year Later

I recently passed the one year mark of this blog and boy has it been a ride and eye opener. When I first started blogging, I thought this would probably end up as a hobby, forgotten after three months. ...
