Travelling to: Hawaii

We went to America! A celebration of two years living together. Here is my thoughts on Hawaii: First off, short story: Opening scene: It is May in New Zealand which is a brittle month with cool weather and dark afternoons. Tess and I are in-between lectures, sitting on the red couches for a peaceful but…

The Best and Worst Auckland City Beaches

After almost two years in the city with minimal effort spent on branching out to see what Auckland had to offer we decided that this summer was going to be one of beaches. Armed with a bottle of rapidly depleting sunblock (RIP) and dreams of the $2 Tiptop trumpet deals we made it a mission to head to as many…

Places I’ve Been 2.0: BLOGNY 2016

Honestly I haven’t been to too many exciting places in the last few weeks –  something I am looking forward to changing in the new year – but on the odd occasion I did venture out past the city I had some pretty sweet time so I thought I would share. Takapuna Beach The thing about Auckland…

I found some of the pictures I had taken and thought I would chuck them up on here. Highlight: For me, the…

Invercargill (or the place I badly misjudged)

I fully intended to return from Invercargill and write a scathing and arrogant post about what a shit-hole it is. My ‘Guide to Invercargill,’ was going to tell you how bored I was, how grey and old and uninspiring I found it. Instead I went there and I fell in love      

Something Good: Floriditas

I went for brunch at Floriditas this week and it just reconfirmed everything I love about this classy little café. It’s not normally my style to review something but I figured the purpose of this blog is to experiment (or to drive myself crazy trying to write things that I usually wouldn’t) so here is  my take on my favourite…
