Hiking the 4 days 3 nights Kepler Track

I began my trip to South Island in February 2016 with the Kepler Track. This was my first multi-day hike, and I’d started planning for it in late September 2015. I’d wanted to do one of the great walks in NZ, and so I began with researching on the Department of Conservation(DOC) website(very useful by the way), narrowed down through the various trails by hike duration, browsed through pictures of the scenery and decided to do this one.

Roadtrip USA West Coast: Santa Monica Pier

On my last night in Los Angeles we decided to head to Santa Monica Pier. It was crowded as per everywhere else in LA, but wow, it’s such a beauty. I love the old school neon lights on everything, plus the numerous souvenir stands along the wooden boardwalk. Fun fact: Santa Monica Pier is where the famous Route 66 ends. Anything related to a John Mayer (cover) song is always cool.
