Just incase you thought you dreamt it all, it was all real

Dear Hunter, Jet and Marlow,  One day in your far off adult life, you’ll recall this Easter Weekend in hazy fragments that live in your 4, 5 and 8 year old minds.   Will you remember pirate ships that rose up at sunset, boats crafted from giant pumpkins, flying...

Leaping, spinning, swinging, flying at Coromandel Zipline Tours

If I had to use just one word to describe Coromandel Zip Line Tours I’d use abandon.  The dictionary says it’s a complete lack of inhibition or restraint and that’s exactly how it felt.

It was like we’d morphed into wood sprites for 2 hours (although maybe it was only the kids who could pass that look off!) skipping or dancing, joyfully through the forest.  Worries and caution thrown to the wind, with laughter and cheers carrying each rider along.

What to do on a girls weekend in Rotorua

So you are planning a girls weekend in Rotorua?  I’ve been on all kinds of holidays in Rotorua - holidays as a kid, with my kids when they were little, with other families and romantic weekends away - but this was my first Rotorua Girls weekend. And it wasn’t any...

Lake Rotoiti Hot Pools & baths in hot water creeks

If you are anything like me you’d be sold as soon as you heard the words “hidden hot springs on the lake front accessible only by boat or float plane” but oh my, there is even more to entice you to the Lake Rotoiti Hot Pools in Manupirua Bay. I went away for a weekend...

Finding magic in the trees at Rotorua Canopy Tours

I’m sitting here on terra firma, feet up and laptop on my knees, 3 days after flying through virgin native forests at Rotorua Canopy Tours, trying to think of how I can possibly explain my experience in any way that does it justice.   My legs still have a slight ache...

Getting Lost in The Redwoods

Well, any number of searches could have led you here.  If you are genuinely lost in The Redwoods - Whakarewarewa Forest stop right now and call someone for help!  Seriously - with 5600 hectares of forest it’s a definite possibility.  If you are after more of the...

The ultimate road test for the Camper Edition

Kiki and I road tested the newest Getting Lost Game - The Camper Edition in a quirky little camper called Brendan.  We spent 5 hours driving around the outer edges of West Auckland on a warm March evening, going no where in particular but at the same time building a...

How to have the perfect holiday with teenagers in Wellington

It was with some trepidations that I took my 3 teenage daughters (13, 14 and 15) to Wellington for a four day break - just the girls.  Let’s face it - teenagers are a tough crowd.  Too old for the kids attractions, too young for the adult attractions and too cool for...

9 things unique to Wellington that won’t cost a cent

It took the kids less than a day to ask why the people in Wellington were different.  It used to be more subtle, these days I think it’s more obvious, more quickly.  Wellington is different.  It’s eclectic, artistic, unique, cultured, wild & unexpected. I fell in...

Why you should explore outside of Wellington city on your next trip

It’s tempting when you visit Wellington to stay in the city.  The city is so wonderfully compact and public transport so good that it’s true that you can happily stay in Wellington without needing a car.  In fact when I lived there I ended up selling mine because I...
