Back in the summer, we did an 11-day trip around New Zealand’s South Island, covering over 2000 kilometers and seeing some of the most beautiful parts of NZ. We flew to Queenstown on Boxing day, hired a 6-berth camper van for the 5 of us (my parents, us and Sophia!) and headed north on a […]

This weekend we were lucky enough to see Ed Sheeran perform in Dunedin, so in true ‘TripleEspresso2Go’ style, we made a road trip of it. This was partly due to the fact that the airlines had hiked their prices to ridiculous levels as soon as the concert dates were released…..not cool….and partly because we wanted […]

Even though we only scratched the surface of the Coromandel peninsula, we fell completely in love with it in a heartbeat. There is so much to see and do and what we did see was pretty magnificent. We feel the need to come back here and explore it more before we can put together a ‘top 10’ list […]

After spending a few days in Thames we got a lift with Meagan and Byron down to Auckland for one evening before flying on to Wellington. We jumped on the ferry from Birkenhead to Auckland and crammed as much as we could into our evening there. The 15 minute ferry crossing departs daily from 7.15am […]

The first stop on our NZ adventure was Thames, a town at the south western end of the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand’s North Island. It is located on the Firth of Thames close to the mouth of the Waihou River. As soon as we landed in Auckland our dear friends Meagan and Byron collected […]

  Our flights to NZ were the first long-hauls that we had ventured on with our 10-month old daughter (so why not do one of the longest routes humanly possible?!). It’s 8800 miles/ 14000km over 16 hours from Dubai to Auckland- and if you’re anything like us you’ll want as many handy hints as you can find to prepare […]
