I was lucky enough to be invited to join a World Journey’s educational trip to Southern Africa including South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
The itinerary was very extensive we got to see a lot of Capetown, wineries and taste some awesome food. We drove, flew and even got to travel on the Blue Train between Capetown and Pretoria. We spent 2 days in Kruger and saw the “BIG 5” on the way from the airport Ngala Lodge, were spoilt with the quality of food and service.
Highlights included a visit to Victoria Falls, taking a Mokoro (dugout canoes) through Hippo highways in the Okavango Delta. The animal life was incredible and we got to experience animal spotting with some of the very best guides and trackers. I was mesmerised by the people, and their cultures and the hidden beauty that is Africa.
My husband and I went on a self familiarisation trip to Niue, my expectations were blown away! We found the place to be bursting at the seams of exciting adventures to be had. Snorkelling in what felt like your own private coral pool, swimming/snorkelling with the dolphins, walks on rocky paths or through native bush. Friendly is a word I would use to explain Niue, full of smiles and happy faces.
We had a lovely relaxing time, filled with days of swimming and sight seeing… the country is very lush. Beautiful and clean, beaches and tropical fish that you have only seen in “Finding Nemo”.
Coming home was hard after making friends and having to say goodbye.
I am left with memories of beautiful beaches, lush green plants, fresh food, smiling faces and new friends
We do live in paradise, what an amazing journey, we travelled down the West Coast of New Zealand, ticked off our bucket list of Milford Sound and the Caitlins, and returned via the East Coast (in the snow I might add). Truly spectacular scenery, the 16 day trip went all too fast.
The trip was way more than I ever expected, I was impressed by the friendly people, the ease of getting around, the wonderful beaches and resorts…… not to mention the FOOD!
Shopping Shopping Shopping, no really I was there to work and see what Melbourne had to offer, just a short trip. Melbourne is so full of excitement and buzz, it was a great place to spend two nights.
An educational visit to Hong Kong, which included sightseeing and exploring Hong Kong Disneyland. As you can tell I love exploring the markets and some of the less trampled spots in Hong Kong.
This trip was an educational with Air NZ to test out their new direct route to Vancouver. We travelled around Vancouver on route to Banff, we took in Lake Louise amongst other sites. It was truly awesome to be there while it was snowing as it gave you a great insight into what people will experience when they are travelling for good SNOW!! The people of Canada, are very much like New Zealanders, friendly and great to be around. I will be going back!!
