As a Kiwi from the land of the long white cloud, travel was never something I aspired to do at a young age. My mother didn't travel and my father didn't travel so the only influences I had of life overseas was from American and UK TV. But the older I got the pressure to travel the world grew and adults would ask me where I would go on my OE. To put a damper on those questions at 15 years of age I got pregnant and the questions stopped. So after two children before turning 20 my first trip overseas was to Sydney for the weekend.Since then I have never looked back and this blog is about my past experiences and the planning for future trips.
