Wish You Weren't Here

Skydive A Glacier
Banana position. Just remember to use the ‘banana position.’ Don’t screw that up, and I’ll be fine. All I’ve got to do is this one thing.

Freedom is. We don't have a pandemic here in Aotearoa (New Zealand). And our only lockdown (level four) was March last year. Auckland, our biggest city did go into level 3 a few times over the the year because of a couple of community outbreaks but they were only a hand full of people with COVID. And they were contained pretty quickly and efficiently. So although we have been really lucky as a country, it wasn't luck that spared us. It was following good advice that saved us from COVID spreading into the community.
I, Like Totally, Love Your Ixceent
My husband and I both left New Zealand over 20 years ago and have spent the past 15 years living in Sydney, Australia. I swore we would never leave. Some of my favourite people in the whole world live in Australia (shout out to my fellow winos and credit card blow outs). It seemed unfathomable to attempt to live anywhere but Bondi Beach with its golden sand beaches, azure waters, kale smoothies and lycra-clad influencer wannabes. I loved the warm climate, the health food fads, the fickle fashion trends, the high turnover of local bars and restaurants (at least there is always something new to try!), and the permanency of my beloved mecca of giant shopping malls.

New Zealand's North Island
I will tread carefully with this one, ensuring I don’t jinx any impending freedoms as dreams are fast becoming reality and my bank account is missing its old friend Bookings.com. I’m ready to enter the Qantas Club lounge, get the dust off the chair and race when boarding is called. Restricted travelling enables an easier decision making process when choosing a location, and I’ve been thinking back on an aesthetically pleasing trip I took a few years ago to the North Island in New Zealand. So dig out the passport, we’re heading abroad.
Life After You
My Dearest New Zealand, I know you said we’d always be friends, but it just doesn’t feel the same. I know I said I’ll always come back, but I just want to be there. And I know it will never be like it was, but that doesn’t make me want you any less.

Hidden Gems - New Zealand Fair edition!
Since moving to New Zealand back in March of 2020, before the pandemic of course. I have been on the hunt to try my best to do all the things that go off the beat and path! Sure tourist attractions are fun, but they can be crowded and over-done. I've made it an important mission to find hidden gems all across the country that could fit any sort of traveler!
We Slept Alongside Avalanches
Katie and I arrived after noon and slightly flustered to the Aoroki/Mount Cook National Park carpark. From what I had read, it would take us three hours to climb to the Mueller Hut, but don't believe everything you read on the internet. It was already 2pm and we ferociously packed our bags for the overnight stay, as my mind subconsciously calculated the hours of daylight we had left.
