Hungry in Hanoi

I was trying to think of a catchy name for this blog that used some alliteration, because I love alliteration, and well, this was the best I could come up with. It's fitting because Hanoi is well known for its culinary delights (or perhaps better known as, amazing street food). We arrived in Hanoi on… Continue reading Hungry in Hanoi


I’m in Bali!

This was my second trip down there in the space of year, but before that, I had never ever visited in my 25 years of living in New Zealand. It's a two hour flight from Auckland,… Continue reading Long Weekend in Queenstown


I Left My Heart in New York City

When you travel, you gather a lot of memories, stories, trinkets and new friends along the way. Some places you will love, and some places you won't want to rush back to. But there will be those few places that keep your heart long after you leave, as cliche as that may sound. The ones… Continue reading I Left My Heart in New York City
