Omanawanui Track

Auckland anniversary calls for another adventure and to get out and explore our very own backyard. After all might as well celebrate the city we live in by getting out of it – right? This track is another west beaut and is regarded as one of the “secret” jewels of the west – as I am … More Omanawanui Track

Ho Chi Minh

After 3 flights, a few hours in stopovers, some movies and eating horrific plane food we arrived safely in Ho Chi Minh city in one piece, bags included. Customs was a breeze and as soon as we left the air conditioned airport we were in for a shock. We’re not in NZ anymore. With temperatures … More Ho Chi Minh

Tawharanui Reserve

This ones a throwback to summer days when the air was warmer, the sun was shinning and weekends were for adventures opposed to cuddled up with a hot cuppa tea and a good book/TV series.

Mount Maunganui

I have been kicking back and soaking up the sun this Christmas period after having spent almost a week in The Mount with family. The weather was stunning (90% of the time) and had some great times with the fam. I spent a good chunk of my time rediscovering my love for photography. From bush … More Mount Maunganui
