If you came here to read about how fun migrating is, you will be severely disappointed. It. Is. Not. Fun! Holy hell, I knew it would be tough but I had no idea about exactly what that would mean. We decided in April this year to move across the world and after doing A LOT of research, including seeing a migration agent, we decided that New Zealand was the absolute right fit for us. It happened to fit a lot of our requirements but a big one was that the

*Sponsored Post Having good car insurance means that you can really live life to the fullest without worrying about anything going wrong on your journey. Life should be about going on adventures, exploring and spending time with the people we love. We shouldn’t have to live with constant fear and worry about our possessions because life isn’t about things, it’s about experiences.  The reality is, those things help make our lives more comfortable and it makes sense that we need to protect them just for our own peace of mind.

Just over a decade ago I spent the year traveling around the world on my own. I went anywhere and everywhere that my heart desired. I had the best freaking time of my life. I did, really I did. That’s how to find yourself isn’t it? By jumping into the deep end and figuring out how to swim! Looking back though, my memories, though mostly happy are littered with sadness. I was traveling to escape my real life problems. I was traveling to figure out how to find myself. My

This weekend was a tough one for me. It was the first time I’ve chosen to leave my baby in the care of someone else for a reason other than being in hospital. A few weeks ago we came across a great discounted offer for a Bed & Breakfast in a little town about 45 minutes from where we live. We decided that we needed a break from our real lives, from our drama and the last 3 months. So we booked ourselves in. I have been so excited about

I’ve never been more in love with a city than this one. With its amazing beer, pubs on every corner it’s a city built for adventures and pub crawls. We were only there for a few nights but I had blisters on my feet from all the walking I did. There are some places that you just can’t be bothered about seeing and then there’s BERLIN! Every corner has something new that could be hidden around the next corner so we just kept on walking. Mostly, I fell in love

I got married in December 2012 to the absolute love of my life and best person in the world (want some toast with that cheese?) and we immediately got on a plane and flew off into the sunset. We are both fans of exploring and staying in less known places where locals are more likely to go than tourists but for our honeymoon, we agreed, the criteria was simple. We wanted an all-inclusive, full service, don’t have to carry your wallet around anywhere kind of place and it was the

I love travelling! Nothing refreshes the soul and inspires the mind like being utterly and completely submerged in a culture that is completely not your own. I will drop everything for a chance to go exploring around the world and it is my mission to get to North America so that I can say I’ve been to every continent except Antarctica (one day I’ll go there too). Everywhere you go has something to make the trip worth it and you really have to be open to new experiences. When I

“You know those things you’ve always wanted to do? You should go do them.” There are so many things that we could do to give our lives more meaning. So many of us just spend our days between work and home and we don’t really make the most of our lives. As a result, we have no energy and don’t feel like we’re really living and reaching our full potential. One way to ensure that we beat the boredom and make the most of our lives is to create a

So I was thinking about the things I do and the places I go to when I’m having a lousy day and what helps me to get out of the funk.  Over the course of my lifetime this has meant different things some of them are too ridiculous to help anyone on an average day but others you might find useful if you ever find yourself stuck in a rut and need some sort of inspiration.    Travel. See I warned you that this might be a bit ridiculous. There

I love travelling! I think I was born with my passport in my hand and my bags packed. By the time I was 11 years old I had been to Europe 8 times. I had been lucky enough to come into the world as a part of a family who believed in exploring. Although we originally came from Swaziland, my fathers sisters had moved to various countries in Europe, so growing up, I got to visit them. While other children spent their Christmas holidays at home, I was exploring Rome

This is a list, in no particular order, of things I absolutely don’t want to live without. My husband Gerard who is my absolute best friend. There isn’t a nicer person in the whole world than him and I am so incredibly lucky to have him in my life. Good food– I love medium rare steak with chips, oysters smothered in lemon juice and tabasco sauce, sushi and hearty cheese board. My handbag collection – I am an absolute bag lady and love nothing more than extending the collection in my
