19 days of vacation: Not nearly enough.
19 days of vacation: Not nearly enough.

First time exploring Nelson, NZ and Brisbane, AUS despite limited time schedules with flights.

First time using a SIM card in another country (I owe you my life, Peter B. – THANK YOU).

First time throwing myself off multiple platforms in various locations.

First time diving in a new country.

First time visiting Australia.

First time spending half of my hard-earned savings on so many activities, food, items and flights: PRICELESS.


In one week, I’ll be departing on another adventure to live on the south side of New Zealand.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. 


To be continued with a breakdown of each of these activities…

Carpe that freakin’ diem.

        1. Thanks, and your blog is fantastic too! You seem like a chic traveler who definitely knows how to plan accordingly. Love it – your blog will be a great resource for my future plans too 🙂


          1. Thank you. Yes I’m not so much of an adrenaline junkie, I always back out when it comes to it. I need to face my fears. I love to plan but I want to start living “freer”, so I admire girls like you that are so free spirited and have no fears whatsoever. Have an awesome time in NZ and hopefully I get to visit soon and maybe I can tap into your bold spirit of wild adventures


            1. I have full faith in you – and just do whatever feels right to you. 🙂 I’m a natural-born planner as well; it’s always nice to have order in life, right? Best wishes for your next travels, whether planned or not. You have great angles in your photography on your blog!


              1. Thanks Debbi. I totally agree with having order in life 🙂 I actually took my first unplanned trip a couple of weeks ago and it was the best trip yet, and I am going on another one soon – lets see how that turns out.
