Getting Lost Travel Blog

Getting Lost the Travel Blog began in 2014. It was born shortly after Cat and James rekindled their relationship after a 20+ year break.

It was the love child of two people who just couldn’t be more different. James, a Joiner from the Hauraki Plains, was fearless – hunting and gathering, exploring shipwrecks, jumping into hidden water holes and sliding down hills.

Cat, a Strategist in an Auckland Advertising Agency and part time photographer knew a lot of restaurants, was constantly on the hunt for the perfect photo and had an infallible knack for getting lost. Oh and then there’s the 3 daughters they were now trying to bring together.

It was a brilliant, beautiful, messy chaos – full with wonderful exploration and a random adventure of getting lost that started it all. So now they’ve amassed over 200 stories, they’ve built a big, wonderful community who love random adventure too and they’ve created a travel adventure game that’s sold more than 100,000 games around the world.

You can find our latest adventures here or explore by destination below.
