As you may or may not know, I’m back in Canada! My first stop right after the airport was Rush Lane graffiti in the heart of Toronto. I hadn’t really thought of going here, but my lovely friend who picked me up suggested we head over there for a great adventure! I was so incredibly pleased because the photos turned out absolutely stunning. We were there for a quick 20 minutes, but next time I’d love to hang around here for a lot longer. If you love street art, and more photos of my face, scroll down hah! Let us know what you think in comments below, and send us a photo of you beside some epic street art!
Yeah, you read it correctly, I’m over traveling. This very sentence definitely has to be explained. I’ve been traveling for 2.5 years, and to some that may seem very long, and to others perhaps short. But as with everything in life, when you do too much of something, you tend not to like it as much. So, in this blog post, I’m going to share with you 5 reasons why I’m over traveling and what my future plans are.
Traveling/backpacking is loads of fun at first, but when you’re not interested in partying or getting wild, it changes the way you want to travel. Hostels are no longer satisfying anymore because they are loud and full of party animals. I’d really love a nice peaceful quiet night without loud ruckus beside my bed. A nice cozy bed with a badass view sounds like a much more enjoyable time.
I really miss traveling with someone. It gets lonely after a while! I’ve tried it once, now I’m over it. Planning a nice month holiday with a partner sounds a lot better to me. Saying that as well, I’ve been single for 2.5 years-ish, and it’s time for something new 🙂
Being constantly on the move all the time gets to you. Yes, I’ve lived in New Zealand for 2 years, but within those 2 years, I’ve lived in so many different places, vans, houses, hostels. The thought of having my own space, where my tea sits, where I can snuggle someone every morning with a dog sounds absolutely heavenly right now.
Along with my travels, I’ve met so many amazing people! Sometimes the groups I’m in are the #dreamteam of friends, and then some of them leave and it turns into the #lonewolf team. The idea of having a stable group of friends where every weekend we can go out and have a bonfire and drinks sounds like the best vibes to me. This is what happens when all these cool people travel around the world, we tend to leave and enjoy new places.
I’ve wanted a dog my entire life. Like a dog, I can keep where my parents won’t give it away, and I can cuddle him every day. It’s time for a dog.
Ew am I growing up or something? Here I’m craving that tiny house vibe, with a dog and a man. You know, a nice quiet life where I can bake and take photos of my cute life. Things are changing that’s for sure, and I really like it. I’m still going to travel around, but very different. New and exciting things are coming, stay tuned!
I’m currently hanging out in Byron Bay, craving a tan, but the weather is not cooperating. As I sit here and plan the next year of my life, and how to make it closer to my dreams, I’ll sip on my flat white with coconut milk and smile because life is good.
Have you traveled for a while, and have gone through the same thing? I’d love to hear about it!
Meet Holly. She’s a stunning girl from England and she kills it in front of the camera. We met in the best place in New Zealand – Queenstown. We’ve been having a blast living here and do loads of fun activities, most of them include going out to cafes and having drinks at night.
We decided to head out to Moke Lake on this beautiful New Zealand day, and I’m sure glad we did. These photos turned out absolutely stunning. Probably my favorite ones yet! Thanks for the great day Holly, you’re awesome!
It’s winter in Queenstown, and if there’s one thing I advise you to do, it’s to buy an early bird ski pass. That is if you’re into mountain sliding adventures. The Remarkables are definitely my favorite skifield in the Queenstown area! It’s close to town, the snow is good and the beginner jump park is awesome! I got an early bird pass for $600 and I’m so happy I did. I’ve gone up this mountain so many times this year and had so many awesome shreds. Living in a town where there are so many ski fields next to your doorstep is a pretty awesome thing. If you’re into snowboarding/skiing and want to get all amongst it, come do a season in Queenstown, New Zealand – I guarantee you’ll love it! Check here for The Remarkables/Coronet Peak ski passes!
I try not to bring my camera up too much because it’s hard to backpack with a big bag on, but this day I brought it up so I could get some cool snaps! Bring the lads up, grab some mulled wine and get on the shreds. Or just drink the mulled wine, up to you!
If there’s one thing to do in Moeraki, it’s to visit Fleurs Cafe. Our Airbnb host told us all about this cute cafe right in town, and we had to check it out. Note to you, always ask locals what cool spots there are around town, they know best! This cafe is literally the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! Writing on the walls, quirky tea cups, rustic wood and amazing food, what more could you ask for. We pretty much took over the upstairs and moved tables around to get some cool shots, the waitress probably thought we were ridiculous, but we had fun. We ordered the 5 filets of fish with steamed veggies, which was absolutely delicious, and the best creme brulee I’ve ever had in my life. It came with a horrible belly ache afterward, but once in a while, it’s nice to get a belly ache from a delicious treat right?
Moeraki is actually so cool with all the old quirky things in town, we found the coolest beige truck and it made for a great prop for some photos.
I hope you enjoyed checking out my adventure to Moeraki Boulders and Fleurs Cafe! We had such a great relaxing weekend. If head to New Zealand, the Moeraki Boulders are definitely on the top 10 things to do in this beautiful country! Stay tuned for my next adventure.
