Russell is one of the sweetest places I've had the chance to visit in New Zealand so far (and I don't mean sweet-tasting! ;) ). Read more about this lovely little Northland town on the blog! http://www.thepaintedglobe.com/russell-new-zealand/ļ»æ

Underwater photography is completely new to me, but it's something I enjoyed enormously when we took a brief trip up to Cairns to see the Great Barrier Reef! šŸ¢šŸ˜

I decided to do something a little different on the blog and talk about the UK! North-east England is home to lots of wonderful places, including two Harry Potter film locations, some gorgeous scenery and heaps of history: http://ow.ly/dUdB30bCzLTļ»æ

I've been a busy bee writing a bunch of blog posts this past month. I encourage you to go and visit thepaintedglobe.com to have a read! Most recently, I rounded up my best travel advice and an itinerary for planning a trip to Japan. Check it out at at the link below. :) http://ow.ly/TLqf30bjykQļ»æ

...and resume broadcast!
I've been away from the blog for two months. In which time I experienced my first 'proper' earthquake here in Wellington (thankfully we were completely unaffected!), (re)took up Japanese and finally finished up my recommendations for Rotorua! So far I've only written about the latter, but watch this space! Go check it out, if you like :) http://ow.ly/D8jd3071K6vļ»æ

Wait, what month is it? I'm flashing back to February again on the blog to cover Tokyo in more detail. Including no less than 15 things to do in and around the city. Have you been to Tokyo? I'd love to hear feedback about what we missed and what we should see if we go back!ļ»æ

Throwing back to Japan soon on the blog looking at our 5 day itinerary for #Tokyo last winter. This shot is from the Meiji Shrine - it was a beautiful building and setting but my favourite thing was watching all the wedding processions go by!ļ»æ

Dolphins on the approach to the epic White Island. Did you know it's New Zealand's most active volcano? It's had quite a bit of activity lately but it's back down to volcanic alert level 1 at the moment! We visited back in April and I rave about it on the blog (link in bio). šŸ¬šŸŒ‹ļ»æ
