Hawaii Day 12 – Koloa


We spent the morning sleeping in and then rushing around to pack our bags. I’m a little bit of a perfectionist so I wanted to have my luggage super organised before we had our rushed two days in Honolulu. Over the last few weeks my luggage had slowly turned into an out of order chaos […]


Hawaii Day 10 – Na Pali Coast


We woke up nice and early to travel down south to Port Allen. There we checked in with Holo Holo Charters where Paige and I plus 20 other people were jumping aboard a catamaran to sail up the Na Pali Coast. The weather was beautiful. It was the clearest sky we had seen all holiday, […]


Hawaii Day 8 – Lihue


We stayed at Jean’s place, an adorable Italian-American Buddhist grandmother from California. Her home was an old mid-manager 1917 plantation house. She showed me the front door which could be split into half so that the bottom half could stay closed and the top half could swing open so that managers can talk to their […]


Hawaii Day 1 – Honokaa


I’m in Hawaii for the next 2 weeks with my good friend Paige. Hawaii has been a dream of mine since I was 6 years old, so I’m super excited to be able to finally set foot here and explore these islands. From Brisbane, we flew into Honolulu for a 9.5 hour flight then went […]


Arrowtown & Queenstown Part 2 (South Island, NZ)


After we had breakfast, we started off our day by jumping on the Skyline Gondola to check out the magnificent view of Queenstown. Wow, it was absolutely breathtaking. And to think that mixing nature with civilisation would still be pretty. Luckily, the weather held off for us. It seemed like it would’ve been such a […]


Arrowtown & Queenstown Part 1 (South Island, NZ)


Before we said goodbye to the beautiful Lake Wanaka, we decided to go visit one more time in the early morning before we headed to our next stop. We caught a little bit of sunshine before the clouds stumbled in and squeezed out a little condensation. We then started our road trip over to Arrowtown, […]


Lake Hawea & Wanaka (South Island, NZ)


The weather was definitely not on our side. We left early at 7am hoping that we would stop along the way to catch, what we heard, are gorgeous sights. Instead we were left with thick, burly foggy grey skies that choked any vision of snow capped Southern alps, lush mountains of rainforests, or the glacial […]


Arthur’s Pass, Hokitika (South Island, NZ)


It was 7 hours of driving today. I covered 5 hours of it and I pretty much covered from the east coast to the west coast. That meant it was 5 hours of windy roads of various speeds (35km/hr to 100km/hr at any time) as we trudged through the mountainous terrain of Arthur’s Pass. I’m […]


Australian Tour continued…


After our saved night from the murder den by staying at the venue we played at, we decided to recover from our late night celebration by heading to Blacksmith cafe in Redfern or Surry Hills. Those two suburbs confuse me as they’re right by each other. We then headed down to Central station to do […]


Day 3 – Toyako, Hokkaido


  Woke up to a spectacular view of Hakodate train station.. normally it wouldn’t be such a sight but I think the flatness of the land made it look appealing. And those flowers, those fuchsia pink flowers.   Before we left the sleepy port town, we stopped by at Goryokaku – a pentagon tower within […]
