Queenstown: Top things to do during Summer

Having spent a fair while exploring Wellington and *ahem* visiting my sister (Travel & Food guides to Wellington), I then took a detour down to Queenstown, hired a car and thus began my northward travel back towards Wellington along South Island’s stunningly diverse west coast. A few travel details: How did I get there? I … Continue reading

Ravenous Memoirs of 2013

In retrospect 2013 has been an incredibly hectic year filled with an unbelievably gluttonous quantity of food related activities and excessive imbibing, which has inevitably meant I have remained in a perpetual blogger backlog going as far back as May. It has also been a year of much hair wrenching work stress, setting in motion … Continue reading

Travel guide to Wellington – Top things to do

Wellington may be known for its volatile weather, at times crossing several seasons – hurricane winds, flash rain, and sunshine all in a day, but this harbour city is full of character. The pristine water glistens, the air breathes of the surrounding lush hills (acting like the lungs of the city), and yet for such … Continue reading

Enjoy! Originally I was planning on taking one of the BEST walks in New Zealand – … Continue reading

NZ part 3 – Oysters for brunch and Middle Earth for lunch

Rising out of bed nice and early we were able to catch the cool morning dew at Mt Eden on our way out of Auckland. Without a map, and a rather stupid GPS, we found ourselves semi-lost at the base of the mound, not knowing which road to take up to the peak. After 10-15 … Continue reading

10 days around New Zealand (part 2) – Crystal Harbour Restaurant

After some research before jetting over, I found many nice restaurants would be closed during the holiday period, and given we weren’t particularly inclined to dine at any place with a Christmas set menu – one: it is generally a rip off, two: quality is likely to be lower – we decided on betting our money on … Continue reading
