Stairway To Heaven – Paekakariki Escarpment Track!

As we move into the beginnings of winter in New Zealand, I’ve been more inclined to keeping myself warm indoors because let’s face it, the wet and cold aren’t exactly my favourite conditions to be outdoors. Yesterday however, we made an exception for this particular walking trail along the Wellington coast and despite ending up with frozen ears, the track was as beautiful as what we hoped; definitely a track worth doing!

Manawatu’s Relay For Life; A Photologue.

Every year, this event has always been much anticipated amongst the locals, and this year was no exception! For many personal reasons, the fight against Cancer is a cause that is very close to my heart, so it’s great to be part of an event that truly reflects this cause!

New Zealand Coffee Festival 2018 #NZCF

My smile in that top photo pretty much sums up how excited I felt to be surrounded by caffeine last weekend. I hardly ever stop by Auckland for leisure but when I do, it’s forĀ Ed Sheeran and of course, the New Zealand Coffee Festival!

What a weekend in New Plymouth looks like.

Not too sure about the rest of you, but I am all about maximising my weekends during the summer months; when days are long, filled with sunshine and warm temperatures are almost guaranteed – It’s a great time for that spontaneous road trip, attending a festival (or two) or explore a hiking trail that’s waiting to be ticked off your checklist.

If you haven’t been to New Plymouth, it’s about high time you made this your next road trip destination; it’s a place that I find myself constantly going back to every summer, either to just have a staycation in town, to climb mountains, walk along its beautiful coast or all of the above.

An Unpublished Photologue of Bhutan.

You may have heard of Bhutan being the Last Shangri-La the world will ever see, but other than that, this country has maintained much of its elusiveness being nestled within the Himalayas, preserving much of its timeless and untouched beauty.

Having set foot in this place, I left with an unexplained sense of attachment and fondness, even more now that I revisit old photo archives of my travels after all these years.
