Kia ora, I’m San!
I think the travel bug was passed down to me from my grandad, so perhaps you could say my urge for travelling is in my DNA. To see the world, I’m not joining the navy, like my grandad did. Instead, I work hard in my awesome, full-time job, and save up for adventures in the mean time. My blog is a way to feed this insatiable travel bug, whilst being in between travels. I gravitate towards Scandinavian countries and countries like New Zealand and Canada. I love nature, photography, and being outdoors, so that’s what I blog about. If this is up your alley, come and say hi, and follow me on my journey!

All photos are taken by me, unless otherwise noted. Reblogging is fine as long as you credit me and leave a link to my blog. Don’t use my photos without my permission or for commercial purposes. If by any chance you really like a photo and want to use it in a post, please contact me first.


    • Hi!! Thank you so much for your kind words and for nominating me! I’ll definetly dive into the questions and pass the award along. Again, thank you! 🙂


  1. Hi San, nice to meet you. I’ve loved reading your posts about Australia, being an Aussie, though I’ve lived in Canada for many years. I also love NZ – We’re going there early next year.
    Thanks so much for following our blog. I hope you enjoy the stories of our journey, both inner and outer.
    Cheers, Alison
    PS Those bad things you say about staying in hostels (meaning shared rooms) – that’s why we don’t do it 🙂 But then we miss out on the good things 😦

    • Hi Alison. Thanks for leaving a message! So glad you liked my posts about Australia. So much to explore in not only Australia, but also New Zealand and Canada! 🙂
      I’m sure I’ll enjoy your stories!
      Most hostels are actually okay. Especially in NZ, the standard of hostels is very high. The bad things all happened in big, impersonal backpacker factories in big cities like Sydney and Melbourne. The smaller places have pretty much all been lovely, so that’s where I prefer to stay at! 😉 I suppose I’m spoilt now 😛


      • I hope you will get the chance to visit Iceland. But be careful, once you visit this wonderful country you will want to go back again and again, to explore more. It’s such a beautiful land, very different from other. So peaceful (so far), you can experience the raw nature and it’s very soothing. Unfortunately, more and more tourists are going there and I hope they will manage them in order to avoid some ecological disasters… the vegetation is very sensitive over there, and I’m not sure it’s made for mass tourism.

  3. Hello San, I’ve come here via Rachel of The Long Way Home. I can understand why you’ve fallen in love with New Zealand. It is beautiful. We’ve been once and I hope we go again soon. I’m looking forward to reading more of your travels.


  4. I’ve also lost my heart to New Zealand! And I somehow always find New Zealand related blogs through the Daily Post Photo Challenge! I wrote one about New Zealand for My Place in the World :).
