Life is in the Detail

Queenstown has to be one of my favourite places in the world! Whatever attracts you to New Zealand, whether it’s to try one of the many adrenaline fuelled activities, admire the incredible scenery or indulge in world class food & wine, it’s all there in one picture perfect town.

My travels

Whale shark at Ningaloo Reef

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Swim with whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef
  • Explore Havana in an open top classic car before they all disappear
  • Head to Borneo to see Orangutans in the wild
  • Explore the temples of Angkor Wat
Machu Picchu

Best Moments

  • Skydiving over Lake Taupo in New Zealand - the incredible scenery on the flight up was almost enough to distract me from the fact I was about to get thrown out of the plane!
  • Completing the Inca Trail to watch the sun rise over Machu Picchu, and being the first onto the site before the other tourists arrived
  • Scuba diving for the first time in Malaysia and seeing turtles as well as a myriad of other aquatic life
  • Spending 3 days on a tall ship sailing the Whitsundays Islands for my birthday- spending my day snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef and evening sleeping on deck under the stars certainly beats a pint a the local. Although the crew do throw a great party!
Road by Uluru

Toughest Travel Moment

  • After a delay due to breakdown number one, we started on the 3,000km drive through the centre of Australia from Adelaide to Darwin, only to breakdown (again) 900km later. It was getting dark, the closest "town" was Coober Pedy an eerie opal mining town built underground, we'd passed an hour back, and we had little to no phone signal. The breaking point was when my travelling companion asked if we were close to Wolf Creek as we realised there wasn't a chance we'd be rescued that evening. Luckily we weren't, but after a sleepless night, we managed to get the van fixed and continue our journey. Arriving at Uluru to watch the sunset 2 days later was totally magical and made it worth it - luckily the rest of the drive went without a hitch.
Abseiling skyscraper

Weirdest Travel Moment

Agreeing on a whim to go abseiling in La Paz with some people I'd known for about 2 hours - "abseiling" was actually being attached to the harness and tilted out of a 17th floor window until I was parallel with the ground then running down the side of the building. Oh, and I was dressed as spiderman too. Not quite what I had in mind!
