This week I went on a little road trip around the central North Island of New Zealand. If you follow my instagram, you’d be able to see some of the photos that I took.
As some of you know, I recently went on a Contiki tour of Italy. I always thought I wasn’t the sort of person who would do a Contiki, because I am not a partier. However, when I got on the tour I realised, that despite all of our differences, we were all similar – looking to experience the culture, history and food of Italy.
Recently I went on holiday to Italy. I had a few days in Sorrento as part of my tour, and one of the optionals was going to Capri for the day.
Being an expat is fun and it will not be easy to go back to my home country in a few months.
You see, being an expat is dangerous. At first, it is scary and all you want to do is go home, but soon enough you get over that homesickness and start enjoying your time overseas.
I love finding little treasures when I travel. Some of my favourite things are very unique to certain countries and some I have found at little markets. It’s funny how these little things remind me of holidays or weekend breaks.
On Sunday I went to Borough Market in London. It took me a long time to actually get there (9 months) and I am so glad that I finally went there!
I had a fab day just wandering around and looking at all the different products I could buy. In the end I didn’t buy much, but I did get some delicious tea from a tea stall there.
In the half term break I visited my family in the Netherlands. I went to the Tong Tong Fair with my great uncle and aunt and their grand children. I had a fab day there!
I found some beautiful items there that I could not leave without.
Utrecht is a place I have wanted to go to for a long, long time. I have heard from many people that it is a beautiful place. So, I decided to head there and see whether it was as beautiful as people had been saying.
I fell in love for the first time the other day. Not in ‘love, love’..but in ‘city love’. Edinburgh is probably one of my favourite cities in the world. I say one of, because Auckland is my first love. I do also love Amsterdam and Barcelona, but Edinburgh is definitely a place I’d love to stay in for a very long time.
Early this afternoon I arrived in London. I managed to find the hostel pretty well. It is the YHA in St Paul’s. If you aren’t a member of the YHA and you are a budget traveller, than you should probably join up. It’s only 5 pounds for under-25.
