Where I've Been


Favourite Holidays


The amazing West Coast

Staying closer to home this year, as a family we went to the "Wild West Coast". We did some amazing walks through Hokitika Gorge as well as the Woods Creek. We had great fun exploring old mines and beautiful forests. We also popped into Punakaiki and of course no visit to the West Coast is complete without a visit to Shanty Town. We spent about 3 hours here - taking the steam train and panning for gold. A great family holiday away!

Fiji with Family

Last July school holidays we decided to take the boys to Fiji for some R and R. We stayed in the Coral Coast at the Outrigger Resort. A really great place to flop and drop. Every night the buffet had a different theme and although the resort was big it did mean we could walk off all the food. Great kids facilities with movies by the pool at night and fun activities in the pool. Over the road is the Kula Eco Park - my boys loved it. Walk through avairy, a small aquarium, Zip line, forest waterslide as well as hand feeding the turtles. All up a good way to spend the afternoon. The beach was a bit tidal but great for snorkeling when the tide was in. 5 Restaurants on site plus a small convenience store. All up a great relaxing holiday.


I love travelling with my 2 little boys (and 1 big one) and geting them to experience new places and cultures. We recently went on a family holiday to Singapore - which was great. Singapore used to be a stopover on the way to Europe but there really is so much to see and do there now. From the beaches on Sentosa to the food in Gluttons Bay and everything in between. We were there a week and could have easily stayed longer!
