It’s that time of year again… 🎅🎄✨ I’ll admit that Christmas in NZ is not the same as a cosy, wintery, northern hemisphere Christmas filled with late night shopping, carol singing and twinkling lights but it definitely has it’s perks. I mean, everyone loves the sunshine, right? Plus, it’s hard to complain when you’re spending the big day in the adrenaline capital of the world – Queenstown! Continue reading →
I don’t know why I strive to come up with different titles for these blog posts – most of the time I just end up embarrassing myself (like right now, for instance) but I hope you guys can ignore the cringe factor and carry on reading about our amazing day trip to Aoraki/Mount Cook!

This time we are road tripping around the North Island and our first stop is Coromandel!
Overall, the time I’ve spent in New Zealand with my family has taught me more than I expected it to.
