Weekend trip to Vegas

whitewaterraftingrotorua

No not that Vegas... I went to Rotovegas, New Zealands own version. Rotorua isn't really like Las Vegas at all but the lines and lines of motels as you arrive are somewhat reminiscent of the real Vegas. I spent the weekend in Rotorua and had an amazing experience... I'd heard there was a lot do but I was surprised at just how much we managed to fit in to a few short days.

Car & Bus Games

carbusgames

Sometimes it's just daunting enough knowing you have traveled half way across the world and the last thing you want is to spend all of your precious travel time cooped up in cars and buses for long periods of time. Travelling via bus and car can be a draining process, you may feel like it's never ending especially if you are short on time. In order to see all of these amazing places you need to get from A to B one way or another.

Do it by yourself or book a tour

You did it, you made the courageous decision to make the journey of your life. And wherever you are, you are there to see something special. Each destination that you visit will provide you with the opportunity to see another amazing sight, whether it be mountains, waterfalls, rainforests or just the beautiful beaches along the coast, chances are you are going to want to see it!

Lost Art of Sending Postcards

byronbaypostcard

Nowadays, when you want to inform your family and friends back home about all your crazy adventures abroad, you can easily send an email, a message through Facebook, create a travel blog, or even have a videochat by using Skype. But before all these inventions, people used to put effort in writing letters and postcards. Can you imagine a time where it took weeks, or maybe even months to receive a letter/postcard from your loved ones?! It's insane!

A Week On The Gold Coast

broadbeach

Ahhh Australia. Where does the mind wander off to when you hear of the Gold Coast? White sand beaches, rolling water and seaspray with city landscape in its backdrop... sunny skies, sun on your face, swimming in crystal clear warm water, champagne on a deck overlooking all of these beautiful beaches... This is exactly what you should be doing with the right budget and a legitimate weather forecast!

Feeling Homesick when Travelling

feelinghomesick

People are weird. Way too weird! Every "human being" I've ever met has a deep psychological problem: When you are home you miss being on your travels and when you are on your travels you miss being at home. Seriously?!

It's kinda funny to think about it, because people choose their own destiny. If someone wants to travel and go backpacking for 6 months, okay why not? You are happy to see something new and explore the world.

What day is it?

birthdaycake

As a backpacker, traveller, island hopper, road tripper we live day by day. Most of us don't plan anything in advance.  When you are travelling though you do find yourself being a bit more forgetful. Is this because we don't care any more? Or just because we are so relaxed that important things just slip our mind.

6 things NOT to say to a Kiwi

kiwisdontwearshoes

Us Kiwis are a pretty hard bunch to piss off. Notoriously blase about, well, just about everything, we're not generally the type to kick up a fuss. But, believe it or not, the easy-going Kiwi attitude only extends so far, and, like every part of the world, there's the odd thing that always manages to get our goat.

New to Backpacking

newtobackpackingbyronbaylighthouse

Before I came to Byron Bay I was a bit worried because I was traveling alone and thought it could be difficult to meet cool people. Luckily I worried for no reason. In Australia it's been so easy to meet nice people and I think that backpackers are all very open minded and friendly because you have to be a certain type of person to do such a trip. From the first second I arrived here I felt very welcome and home.

Queenstown Seasons

summer-in-queenstown

As a city girl I was afraid that I wouldn't like Queenstown. It's small, it doesn't have many shops (come on a girl likes shopping, whatever her budget is) and I was afraid to see the same people over and over again. Guess what? I was wrong (again)... so wrong that I am in love with this town now. In love? Yea I think you can call it like that.. This town, the people and the whole way of living life makes me feel happy, totally happy and I would recommend everyone to come and discover the things that this town has to offer.
