New Zealand

They say home is where the heart is. And that is true, to a certain extent. The more I travel, the more I feel like my concept of home grows – everywhere I go, I unintentionally  (but willingly) leave a little piece of my heart behind. The people I meet, the memories I form – I like to think that I will always be connected to wherever I have just discovered. However, one of my favourite things about travelling is that it makes you appreciate how incredible New Zealand really is. Without a doubt, it would easily be one of the most objectively beautiful places on Earth. The more I travel, the more I see – and the more passionate I become about my homeland. Sure, in the generical sense, home for me will probably always be the Hawkes Bay. But, emotional connections to different people and places have served to expand my concept of home. One thing will always stay true though; no matter where in the world I end up, I know that I couldn’t be more proud to be a Kiwi girl.

I am pretty lucky, I realise that. I grew up in the Hawkes Bay (commonly associated with good weather, great food, and fantastic wine), studied in the depths of the South (Otago University), spent most of my childhood holidays at Ohope Beach (or with my Mum’s family in Mount Maunganui) and have recently moved to the world’s cutest little capital, Wellington. This has provided an expansive platform for me to inadvertently experience a huge variety of what our fabulous country has to offer.

With regards to the actual travel blog, more coming soon. Although – here is a sneak peak of what NZ has to offer…
