Whitsundays… Part 2…
While in Singapore we headed to Singapore Zoo! The zoo covers 26 hectares and houses over 300 species, 26% of which are endangered! The zoo first opened in 1973 and adopts an “open concept” with large, spacious enclosures that are stimulating for the animals. The enclosures make clever use of streams and ditches to keep […]
After an hour or so on Whitehaven Beach we returned to the Solway for another delicious meal prepared by our resident chef before heading into deeper water where we heaved the main sail and made use of wind power. It’s amazing watching the crew climb the masts, release the sails and repel down to the […]
The yellow-eyed penguin is one of the rarest penguins in the world and can only be found in New Zealand… and I’m overjoyed to say that we got the rare opportunity to observe them in the wild! On day one of our Catlins tour we stopped at Curio Bay, a beautiful campsite nestled amongst golden […]
Bye Bye New Zealand!
Wanaka is without-a-doubt one of our favourite places in New Zealand! But I’m getting ahead of myself a little… after 1 night in Fox we hit the road and headed towards Haast. Although we hadn’t originally planned on stopping in Hasst we were left with no choice as the road was closed after a major […]

Feejee Experience: Day 3
Picton will always have a special place in mine and Nick’s hearts as the place we got engaged! Nick and I have been together for nearly 4 years and travelling has brought us closer than either of us could have imagined. I knew pre-travelling that I wanted to ask Nick to marry me so I […]
Our third day (and third group) on the Feejee Experience tour involved a visit to a local village & school, a traditional Fijian lunch and an afternoon of bamboo rafting before heading to our final resort RakiRaki Hotel. I was really looking forward to the village visit and the bamboo rafting so was extremely excited […]
Rockies: Moraine Lake
Just a quick update while I have 5 minutes of internet. Currently: Fiji Next: New Zealand Blog: Way Behind Fun: Lots Happy: Very! That is all for now, hopefully more updates soon!
Just a short drive (15-20 minutes) from Lake Louise is Moraine Lake. Moraine Lake, although not as large as Lake Louise, is equally stunning and well worth a visit. When you pull into the car park and start heading towards the Lake it’s hard to see what all the fuss is about but don’t be […]
