Hiroshima

A Day in Hiroshima

Actually, not even a day in Hiroshima. We spent about eight hours in Hiroshima, but it was a worthwhile visit. Most people have a particular vision of Hiroshima in their head. That vision is undoubtedly based on the horrific destruction that resulted from the atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima in August 1945. Despite that bomb being […]

Auschwitz

Visiting Auschwitz

Visiting Auschwitz is a harrowing experience. The final resting place of millions of people murdered by the Nazi’s during World War Two is a popular day trip from Krakow. I debated over whether to write a post about it site for some time. For me, travel isn’t just about experiencing amazing cultures, delicious foods or […]

Berbere

Berberè Pizzeria, Bologna

If there was one thing we were going to eat while in Bologna, it was going to be pizza. We are not big pizza eaters. Avoiding carbs, it doesn’t sit too well in our stomachs. However, I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity for a well made Italian pizza. A fellow pilot had recommended Berberè […]

Dubrovnik

24 Hours in Dubrovnik

I know what you are thinking. One day? Is that really enough? In case you haven’t noticed, I like a challenge. Everyone enjoys travelling in different ways, and my particular method is best described as frenetic. If you’ve ever used Visit A City, we find the ‘action packed itinerary’ a little too slow-paced for my […]

Madrid

Two Days in Madrid

We arrived in Madrid about 1PM, after catching the high speed AVE train from Barcelona. By the way, I’d highly recommend the train service over flying. For some weird reason, the day of our trip, it was only 5 euros more to go in the Premiere cabin as opposed to tourist class. We ended up […]

Lamour

L’amour en cage

Looking for a slice of la vie française in Raumati? You can’t get much better than L’amour en cage. I’m a little ashamed to admit it, but when I decided to come back to New Zealand to work for six months, one of the first things I thought about was cake. Yes, cake. To be […]

Carnival

Carnival by Tresind

I hadn’t had the chance to eat at any Indian restaurants in Dubai, so I was pretty excited to be able to sample the Chef’s Tasting Menu at Carnival by Tresind. Located in the Dubai International Financial Centre in the Burj Daman building, Carnival offers ‘post-modern’ Indian, inspired by the various cultures influencing Indian cuisine. […]

Gear Iceland

What Gear to Take to Iceland

You would assume this would be logical. Iceland is a bit cold. You wear warm clothes. However, I saw some very interesting outfits there. Thin leggings as pants. Plastic ponchos. A girl in a tutu. Numerous people in $600USD hiking boots that had obviously never seen the outdoors before. While we didn’t do any hardcore […]
