    Postcards Home – Week 11

    To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,

    Once again, I have been a very busy bee this week. After a few days soaking up city life in the capital of New Zealand, Wellington, we jumped on the ferry to the South Island.

Passing through breathtaking scenery, we admired winding grape vines and tall, leafy mountains for as far as the eye could see until we reached the beachside. Enjoying a couple of days relaxing in this sleepy town, we soon moved onto Westport.

    To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,

    I have spent the past week exploring the city I will be calling home for the next 6 months – Auckland. A metropolitan city made up of suburbs, islands and over 50 extinct volcanos, I have been attempting to tick off a new area of the city each day to familiarise myself with what is where.

    Postcards Home – Week 6

    To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,

    I AM OFFICIALLY IN NEW ZEALAND.

    After an 18 hour train journey from Trivandrum to Chennai and a day chilling in my hotel room blogging and watching films with the BIGGEST (and my last *sob*) take-away Indian meal, I hopped on the last leg of my journey to Auckland.
