One Week South Island Jucy Road Trip


My latest trip to the South Island was all thanks to Jucy World as I was the winner of their ultimate #JUCYWINTER getaway! I was incredibly excited - I had never won anything before and had always wanted to experience road tripping around New Zealand in a campervan (I LOVE being a tourist in my own country!).

Are you a fan of the Lord of the Rings movies? Do you love horses but have only been on them once or twice?  If you answered yes to both of those questions - put this tour on your bucket list right now!

A few months ago when I was last in the South Island, I went on the Dart River Adventures Funyak tour which was honestly one of the most incredible activities I've ever done in New Zealand (very highly recommended).

Excited to be heading to Las Vegas, and not being much of a gambler, I spent a bit of time researching some fun activities to do during the day.

I had heard of Red Rock Canyon in Nevada’s Mojave Desert which is estimated to be 180-190 million years old, and was pleasantly surprised to find out it was less than half an hour away from The Strip.

Top Things to do in Hoi An, Vietnam


Hoi An is an incredibly charming town on Vietnam’s central coast, well-known for its greatly preserved Ancient Town, cut through with canals.

I absolutely loved spending a week there, exploring the beautiful ancient city that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
I was lucky enough to be there during the lunar lantern festival where the old town shuts off electricity in the evenings, is closed to traffic and transforms into magical alleyways of colourful lanterns, flickering candles and lively gatherings.
