a travel blog?
Hi I'm Sarah-Jane. I am a free independent travel writer who is always looking for not only the exceptional but also the surprising Kiwi and Australian destinations. I have had the good fortune of being able to have over 30 years of off the beaten track travel experience and have a lot of interesting stories to tell about the destinations I write about.
THE JOURNEY IS WORTH IT!
WHY DO WE FOCUS ON AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND?
Australia and New Zealand is our backyard. It is a place we know best. Knowledge inspires indepth, detailed journeys about Australia and New Zealand’s special corners. Understanding local cutlure, norms and how things work gives us confidence to create a unique travel experience for you. Let’s start building memories of a great trip downunder.
WHAT DO WE LIKE?
Challenging ourselves to participate in activities or events where we are a little scared. Electric scooters lets give it go and speed around our warehouse yard or clambering into a tunnel in a coal mine to see what it like to work underground are recent energy boosters.
We feel relaxed in beautiful serene places where nature is a tonic for the soul. New Zealand and Australia have an abundance of locations where you simply absorb the world around you. Perhaps it has been a two hour walk to get there. All the better to enjoy the moment.
WHAT DO WE NOT LIKE?
Hot, humid weather you have to think about what I am going to learn when I visit a place that is sticky and warm. We get cross with moans and groans from fellow travellers abroad. It is sometimes difficult when events or connections fail yet there is always a bright side even if it is a long layover in an airport transit lounge. And, there is always the airport bookshop. 😍
Getting to know your place gives travel an extra joy as you have foundations to celebrate difference and diversity.
LET’S EXPLORE TOGETHER
Let’s explore together New Zealand & Australia, down under! With my Itineraries you can travel in the slow or fast lane and improvise, choose places of interest to you and leave knowing you didn’t miss out. And for those who wish to give us the pleasure of organising your journey, we promise to get it sorted.
