A lot of people, when quizzed about the New Zealand’s south island, would wax poetic about places like Milford Sound and Wanaka, and would be very quick to dismiss Queenstown with words like ‘flashy’ and ‘crowded’ being thrown around. Coupled with it’s world-wide reputation of being ‘the adrenaline capital’, you imagine it to be a … Continue reading Love it or loathe it: Queenstown

Goodbye 23. Hello 24!
I just turned 24! Which is supposedly the birthday that you get your fully-grown adult brain. Welcome adult brain! Hopefully you more capable of handling this whole growing-up thing because my previous brain would go into a flap at the sight of bills or paperwork. My birthday was spent in Perth with one of my … Continue reading Goodbye 23. Hello 24!
That One Time I Slept in a Park in London
Things I would recommend in London: shopping in covent garden, partaking in high-tea, picnicking in Hyde Park, and going to see a show in West End. Things I wouldn't recommend in London: traveling on the tube at peak hour, forgetting an umbrella, and sleeping on the street. Needless to say, I did all three of … Continue reading That One Time I Slept in a Park in London
5 Travel Disasters that Happened to Me (and How I Dealt with Them!)
Travel is all fun and games until you lose all your money and end up sleeping on the street surrounded by the neighbourhood cats (yes this happened to me). From losing your passport to sleeping through your train stop, if you are travelling for longer than two weeks then you are bound to run into … Continue reading 5 Travel Disasters that Happened to Me (and How I Dealt with Them!)
Month Seven of Travel
My sister described this feature on my blog as 'the monthly update I do every couple of months' but with each month becoming even more chaotic than the last it has become increasingly difficult to sit down and write! My last monthly update was written in Greece and since then I have travelled through five … Continue reading Month Seven of Travel
The Finnish Summer House
Travellers, let me tell you this, if you’re ever in London and have to catch the underground to the airport, try your very hardest to avoid rush hour. I learnt this the hard way and consequently found myself fighting my way onto the Jubilee line in order to make my flight at 11:00. I was … Continue reading The Finnish Summer House
The Little Greek Island an Hour from Athens: Agistri
The last two days in Greece quickly became my favourite time of the whole two month trip and it was all down to the little Island of Agistri. My time in Greece was drawing to a close and the hope of seeing an Island grew dim as I trudged the grey, urine soaked streets of … Continue reading The Little Greek Island an Hour from Athens: Agistri
The YouTubers that are Travelling the World
I love watching YouTube videos and over the past year YouTube has slowly overtaken movies,television and sometimes even books (!) as my most preferred form of killing a couple of hours. It started off with a couple of make-up tutorials here and there and before I knew it, I was watching a couple hours a day. I … Continue reading The YouTubers that are Travelling the World
Having a Rummage at the MauerPark Markets
On the way to Berlin I was excited to see the famed East-Side Gallery, the majestic Bradenburg gate and the alternative paradise that is Kreuzberg but let’s get real, it was the promise of a good rummage at the MauerPark Flea market that most excited me. Hailed as the “King of Flea Markets”, the MauerPark … Continue reading Having a Rummage at the MauerPark Markets
Biking around Berlin
If the city of Berlin was a person, it would be that eclectic hipster friend you have that wears ironically ugly shirts, reads obscure poetry and drinks too much. He is the friend who outwardly loathes the Sunday brunch ritual but partakes in it every week nonetheless. His other favourite activities include drinking beer in … Continue reading Biking around Berlin
