I began my 17 days South Island trip in Christchurch. Took a red- eye direct flight on Singapore Airlines and arrived at about 10am local time. I booked an Airbnb accommodation, mainly because I’d wanted a space to store my hard case luggage, without incurring massive storage fees for that 2- week period of backpacking. Luckily, the host of my apartment agreed to keep my luggage, until I was back 2 weeks later.
My main aim on this second visit was to truly experience what NZ is about. The amazing landscapes, and the ruggedness of travelling through it all…
In the early spring of September 2014, I decided to take a super spontaneous trip somewhere, but didn’t know where to. Work was absolutely draining at that point, and I told myself that I needed a break, no matter how little the days I could afford. And so, I applied for my leave a week before, booked my tickets, squeezed time out every night for about 5 days to plan, and I got my 5 days trip to South Island, New Zealand! Essentially minus off the flight, it was a 4 days 5 nights trip. It turned out to be one of the best breaks I’ve ever had thus far, and it’s this trip that made me love last minute trips even more.
Of the cities I’ve been to so far, London is my favourite. It is super tourist friendly, very easy to get around(by foot, or by tube) and has everything I believe anyone needs, to live a comfortable yet exciting life — convenient and modern transportation, beautiful parks, history, […]
I went to Japan during the Sakura season (Late March to April) for 10 days, covering Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka and Nagoya. My friend and I bought the 7- Day JR Pass and thus wanted to maximise our coverage as much as possible! Thinking back now, there are […]
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.
I love Hong Kong. The first thing that comes to mind, well, to most people, is usually Dim Sum. I’m not any different, given that I don’t spend much of my travel allowances on shopping for big items. The second thing that comes to my mind is the […]
I fondly remember this trip to Paris because it was my long awaited graduation trip, and also my second time taking a plane, and first flight out alone. I met up with a friend of mine who was living in Paris at that time, and stayed at her […]
