Where I've Been

 

Favourite Holidays

 

Dubai,Greece, Italy and Croatia 2018

In May and June of 2018 my partner and I were lucky enough to go off and do our OE. We started in Dubai and loved every minute of our time here! I feel it is a destination people forget about because they often do a stop over only. We went up the Burj Khalifa and watched the city light up at night, went 4x4 wheel driving through the desert, rode a camel, held a falcon, and many other activities. I would love to go back to Dubai again!

Greece: Our favourite from the trip! After more than 8 years of wanting to go here it exceeded my expectations and more. We covered a lot of ground in Greece but my highlights were: Paros, Santorini, Olympia, Meteora Monasteries and Sailing around the Ionian Islands. Greece has the most beautiful scenery, amazing food and the people are so friendly. We also found Greece really cheap! I would go back to Greece in a heartbeat!

Italy: Italy has amazing history and scenery. We were lucky enough to cover off most of Italy. My highlights were Venice (everything about it) , Rome, Florence and the Amalfi Coast (including Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius). We aren't big history buffs but Italy truly has some of the most amazing historic architecture I ever seen. I loved how one place was so different from the last - you almost felt like you were in a different country.

Croatia:
Loved Croatia!! Again we covered a lot of ground here. We started in Dubrovnik and caught a ferry to Split from here where we picked up our rental car. If doing independent travel I would strongly recommend hiring a rental car as it is cheap and convenient. We even ended up in Bosnia for a day with our rental car. My highlights were Dubrovnik, Krka National Park, Trogir and Pula. Croatia is very affordable and has beautiful people and scenery. Another favourite that I would gladly revisit.

Australia 2017

In April 2017 my partner and I visited the beautiful Gold Coast (Surfers Paradise) in Australia. We had a great view of the city and beach from our hotel room and were only a few minutes stroll to the beach. We loved the fact that the Gold Coast isn't a big flight from NZ, there is a cool beach vibe and everything is very accessible.
We had previously on other holidays been to the theme parks so didn't go again however Movie World, Sea World and Whitewater World are my favourites. 

There is plenty of things to do at Surfers Paradise! I love going to the local markets and the night markets along the beach and not to mention all the amazing shopping! My favourite places to shop are Ashmore and Harbour Town Outlet Shops and if you are looking for shopping mixed with music and good food then be sure to check out Night Quarter Markets by Helensvale.

Fiji

My favourite destination. I have been lucky enough to go back to Fiji many times. I love the scenery, the people and the food. Such a relaxing break away. My favourite resort is Musket Cove however I would love to explore the upper Yasawa islands and Taveuni. Fiji holds a special place in my heart that will never be replaced - my family and I have some lifetime friends we have met on our Fiji travels. I love snorkeling and diving in Fiji - a must do! Island hopping is a great day trip option that I enjoy as it is a great way to experience another resort or two for the day. You really get into the Fiji-Time way of life when you are there and totally unwind. A perfect R&R destination.
