Couldn’t sleep last night cos I was so cold. Pondered taking out my sleeping bag but because I was the last to turn in at like 12am, I was afraid of the noise. So I think I had 4 hours of sleep maybe. Woke up at 6.40am and […]
Woke up today at about 6.15am to a complete white out. Lien opened the window in our dorm and the first words were ‘omg’. I’ve never seen so much snow in my life, and never before on top of a mountain. It was so beautiful. But the problem […]
Man. Today was tough. Terrain and weather was unexpectedly challenging. Not to mention, the total elevation on this section is about 1500m. I woke up at about7.30 for some simple breakfast, which was crispy baguette with jam and tea. Then basically for most of the day, it was […]
Started stage 1 of the TMB from Les Houches. Took a bus from Les Pelerine and took the Bellevue Telepherique up to Col dear Voza. Had a short break at Auberge dear Bionnassay. The amazing views of the valley made up for the mediocre hot chocolat though. Met […]
Currently waiting to board my delayed flight to Zurich. This is actually my first encounter of such a thing, and it has caused some distress to my plans as I’ve got a connecting flight to Geneva. Got notified about a couple of hours before I’d wanted to head […]
Upon arrival in Christchurch, I stayed for one night, and then took a morning InterCity bus from the Christchurch bus interchange to Te Anau, which costs $30. The bus journey began at 7.45am, and arrived in the quiet town of Te Anau at 6.30pm, with a couple of coffee/toilet stops in between at Omaru and Dunedin. It was a long journey on the watch, but it really didn’t feel that long because of the beautiful sights along the way, and the half hour stops on between! Was quite happy to get a glimpse of those 2 towns I didn’t get to go. Omaru is famous for its penguins, and Dunedin basically reminded me of a larger, slightly more urban version of Akaroa.
Te Anau is popularly known as the gateway to Fiordland National Park, which was thus my ‘base’ for the Kepler Track great walk!

I had initially planned for only one Coldplay show, that was the 15 June one. The aftermath of the Wednesday show just left so much to be desired. Something bugged me and I felt like this trip isn’t complete just yet. Furthermore, at that point in time(Before Asia’s dates […]
Finally getting down to write about one of the best days of my life, my first Coldplay concert in no better place other than the one and only, Wembley Stadium! So the concert was on Wednesday, 15 June 2016, and I flew from Singapore and arrived in London […]
