Keukenhof – Holland’s Tulip Garden

If you love Spring, pictures of animals and most importantly Tulips then today’s post is perfect for you. In fact, I thought of sharing this with you while wandering around the tulip park in Holland that I let out a little scream of excitement at it all. I wish I could have taken you all...

Amsterdam

Amsterdam has a reputation of legal highs and weaving canals that exceeds its borders, because of this I wasn’t sure what to expect of this city. In usual form I did virtually no research and in even lazier form, I relied on my friend, a local, to guide me to the best places to see. Without...

Ostend, Belgium

The beach town of Ostend isn’t necessarily somewhere you would go for it’s exciting pace nor is it a beach town to soak up the heat of summer as the average is more warm than hot. But stepping off the train and walking down the shop laden street down to the shoreline, the appeal of...

Bruges – Rustic and Charming

With a gray sky overhead, my train pulled into Bruges on a cool Spring day. The train station teemed with kids on school excursions to somewhere, backpacks taking up as much space of the station as their bodies. And I had arrived in this special Belgian city where canal rides can be had and waffles eaten...

Littlehampton

On a sunny Saturday a lovely friend Knoxxy and I set off on an almost two hour train trip to a beach town by the name Littlehampton to a perfect clear sky overhead. Leaving London on much discounted tickets we were lucky to get our hands on. We rushed ourselves to the train on a Saturday...

Torredembarra – Historical Village and Beaches

A number of times in the planning phase of a trip I’ll look at a name and think “I’ll go there.” Not for any particular reason, but just sheer interest in seeing as much of this fair planet as I can. When the decision was made to step foot in Spain, I knew four days...

Barcelona

Stepping foot in Barcelona, one can see why the Spanish Empire sought to conquer countries like Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico, there are elements of each of those countries in Spain and you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in Latin America. Having been to all of the above countries I felt an odd sense...

Paris – Part Two

You can imagine how it will feel and what you will see. Especially in this day and age where Google street view gives you the option to ‘stand on the ground’ and do a 360 degree view of your surroundings virtually any where in the world. Your expectations of how it will feel will always...

Paris – Part One

Oh Paris. Dreaming of Paris my entire life, it was surreal to step foot into this city. Where fall is yellow with grey skies overhead and the streets are almost empty. The lines to go up Le Eiffel are still long with everyone bundled up from the cold. It is a city that is worth visiting no matter...

Moving Overseas Solo

Moving somewhere on your own can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be difficult. Moving to a new country on your own can be considered crazy. In this 21st Century world where nothing has ever been more interconnected and the human family has never been smaller or closer from all corners, the world can...

Berlin

Berlin is a stunning city with it’s sweeping greens everywhere you wander to the very atmosphere found within it – a city steeped in so much history that every street has a story it could tell, yet the vibe is very youthful, a city that is really only in it’s youth in being whole once...

New York City

New York is a city of dreams – theater and business. It’s a city that’s rough and tough and the people who have been born and raised there come off like they’ve had a few more knocks than you or I. With it’s rough and tumble attitude though it is an amazing and truly one-of-a-kind...

Texas – Dallas and Austin

Texas is known for being big and bold with a background of ranchers, astronauts and Presidents. The Lone Star State has a bold history mixed between the Native peoples, the European settlers and pieces of French, Spanish and Mexican colonization. Of all the states I’ve stepped foot in I was never yearning to go to Texas, it’s my...

Utah, Colorado & New Mexico

This month has involved a lot of traveling, particularly in the last week. After three days in Arizona I spent the next three-and-a half-days in Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. I was ironically on my way to Albuquerque, New Mexico when I heard about the tragic happenings in Boston which of course made me stop...

Arizona – The Grand Canyon State

The Grand Canyon state is nothing short of grand. I mean that in earnest, not in a pun sort of way. In the many hours I spent on the road in the state I only visited one city – Phoenix and the remainder of my time was spent in much smaller places just passing through...

Los Angeles

Visiting the city of angels never makes me feel like I’m visiting, rather it’s like I’ve come home. Sure, the traffic is terrifying to drive in sure, but you get used to it. There are parts of this city you want to say you’ve seen and keep moving from and parts you don’t want to...

A brief guide to New Zealand

Aotearoa = Land of the Long White Cloud. New Zealand = Hobbits and Flight of the Conchords. As a citizen of this country I find it only fair I give you some insights into what this land is about. What you can find here. And to straighten some misconceptions about the three island nation sitting...

Wellington Sights

The windy capital and capital city of New Zealand is Wellington and while its been a while since stepping foot in the city,  I’ve been enough times to know exactly where to take my friend who had never been to eat, see and do in the city where politics and arts collide in a weird...

Lennox Head, NSW

It took me twenty five years, but I made it. For most New Zealanders visiting Australia is a passage of right. It is so mundane an activity in fact, that the first visit overseas is usually the great continent across the Tasman sea. Unlike most Kiwis, I hadn’t made it to Australia before gallivanting to...

Weekend: Part 1 – Tongariro Crossing

Wow is about how to sum my weekend up. Wow to those views. Wow to the weather. Wow to the food. So much so that I have to put it into two parts for your photographic enjoyment. I’ll start with the hike in Tongariro National Park that I completed with my friend Alli. Despite our...
