When we first looked into booking our flights from Australia to New Zealand we had our hearts set on arriving in  Queenstown. Why?

Finding My Love for Travel on a USA Adventure Tour

“I’m going to travel the world” five tiny insignificant words that meant nothing to anyone but me. When I touched down in Manchester airport the cold was bitter and the rain poured.

Melbourne is Australia’s second biggest city and has been Sydney’s biggest rival for years on end. When chatting amongst the locals here in Australia it’s easy to realise that most prefer one over the other. During one day in Melbourne, I also found myself comparing the two cities whom are both vastly different from one another. It’s no secret that I hold tremendous amounts of love for Sydney. As time goes on I wonder if perhaps the one day in Melbourne that we had just wasn’t enough to really understand what this city has to offer.
