I have lived in 5 different countries, travelled full-time in a campervan in New Zealand, and taught English in Japan. I want to inspire you to travel more, spend less and have your own wild and lovely adventures around the world.

Been yearning and dreaming of visiting New Zealand but I didn't know what to do. I didn’t know New Zealand is this much of an adventure. This guide is so complete.

I've always wanted to visit New Zealand. Loving all your recommendations. I’ve never even heard of this place before but it looks incredible and I would love to visit one day, and see those stunning views in real life.
