Winter is coming ❄️ we just had our winter solstice here in New Zealand and the shortest day of the year, time to head back to the snowy mountains, like snowshoeing on the Tasman Glacier with mtcookglacierguidingnz and mtcookskiplanesandhelis

Confession - I came to Hong Kong pretty much just to eat. And my god did it not disappoint! Hong Kong is a foodies paradise, pack your leggings and an empty stomach 😍 egg waffles are one of my favorite street snacks and when taramilktea told me about a place that does egg waffles + gelato, well I didn't need much convincing 💥 fshongkong lifewelltravelled allthenoms

Are you guys watching my Stories? // You'd be crazy to come to Hong Kong and not stay somewhere with a baller view ☀️ I sat in my room at the fshongkong for hours watching the boats go by (where were they going? Who was on board?) and the clouds drift across the skyline ❤️ a day dreamer at heart, I always make time when I'm traveling to just sit and soak in wherever I am, even in this hectic fast paced world 🌎 fourseasonsHK lifewelltravelled

And after a month, it was time to say goodbye to Europe and head back home to New Zealand ✈️ this time I broke up the long journey with a stopover in Hong Kong with cathaypacific ☀️ I first visited here 3 years ago on my way to Mongolia and I'd been itching to go back ever since // be sure to go watch my Stories and see what I got up to on my adventure in the Pearl of the Orient - have you been? lifewelltravelled

I wish I could take all the credit for inspiring my parents to travel to Ireland ☘️ but in fact it all belongs to dunbrodyhouse_ireland in Co. Wexford. They are big fans of kevindundon an amazing Irish chef and dreamed of staying at his beautiful Georgian style country house hotel 🇮🇪 I love hearing all the different sparks that ignite our love for travel and what inspires people to take that big step out the front door ☺️ thatbluedoor

Happy World Oceans Day 🐳 let's keep fighting the good fight to keep our beautiful planet beautiful 🐠 and man, doesn't Ireland have some spectacular coastline? These are the lesser known Kerry Cliffs near Portmagee, which I liked better than the Cliffs of Moher saveourocean loveireland tourismireland

Cobh might have been the cutest town we visited in Ireland 😍 it was also the Titanic's last stop before going out to sea, and 2.5 million Irish who eventually immigrated to the US would have left through here. In fact, it used to be called Queenstown, small world tourismireland loveireland

Now that's what I call a swing bridge! Funny story, I first visited the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge in discoverni way back when in 2008 while backpacking in Europe after a year of studying in Spain. My little point and shoot camera broke right before Ireland, so I used a disposable film camera for the last time. Oh how times have changed ☀️loveireland tourismireland

What do you look for in a hotel? I look for coziness, comfort, a big bath, fast free wifi and a good desk I can work at (since I'm never *actually* on a vacation) and dope breakfasts, all of which the merrionhotel in Dublin had in abundance. These days I spend almost half my year in hotels and beds that aren't mine, so in the absence of my own home, I look to recreate it when I'm traveling. My days of hostel bunk beds are long long long behind me. All part of growing up I suppose and starting new chapters. Dublin, I miss you already ☘️bigcozybed
