Road Trip Chronicles – C1 Espresso In Christchurch

C1 Espresso In Christchurch

During our South Island road trip, we spent a couple of nights in Christchurch. One of the things I had wanted to do while we were in Christchurch was check out C1 Espresso on HIgh Street in the CBD.

I’m not gonna lie, the only reason I wanted to go C1 was because I had heard about their sliders, and how they come to your table via pneumatic tube (what can I say, I’m a sucker for things that).   Continue reading →

Road Trip Chronicles – Wendelton Guinea Pig Village

wendelton guinea pig village

Last month, Phillip and I went to Queenstown for a friend’s wedding. I hadn’t really been to the South Island before our trip to Dunedin at the start of the year, so we figured we  may as well make a road trip out of it.

Our first stop was Nelson, where we had breakfast with my dad at Morri Street Café, before heading to the Wendelton Guinea Pig Village at the Eyebright Country Store.

I had so much fun at the guinea pig village; I took photos and videos, and even got to feed the guinea pigs (you can get some free guinea pig food from the store), I might have been a little over excited…

I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from our visit with you so you get to experience the cuteness as well.

Eateries: Modaks Espresso (Dunedin)

Eateries Modaks Espresso Dunedin

Travelling with dietary requirements can be a pain in the ass, even finding places you can eat before you get there can be a huge fucking mission sometimes. For our trip to Dunedin, I started looking for possible places we could eat about a few weeks in advance, and it wasn’t looking promising. One of the suggestions was for a place in Takaka, Golden Bay – how is that even close?! (for those not from New Zealand, it’s about a 10 hour drive from where we were staying)

We landed in Dunedin a bit after lunch and decided to go for a walk to see if we could find a place that had something gluten-free on the menu (turns out a lot of places actually, I was surprised); one of the places we found was a café called Modaks EspressoContinue reading →

Weekend In Dunedin

weekend in Dunedin

We were in Dunedin over the weekend for a friend’s wedding; had never really been to the South Island before and was really excited about seeing more of the country.

I’m not going to lie though, I was kind of expecting not to like Dunedin; a friend had hated it,  and I was scared that I would too. It’s safe to say I was pleasantly surprised; I had a great time and really want to go back for another visit soon (We’ll be in Queenstown in March, and I keep asking Phillip if we’ll be able to make a stop over in Dunedin; despite it not being anywhere we’ve planned to go)

While we were in Dunedin, we did a bit of shopping, went to Toitū, the Otago Museum, the esplanade and Larnach Castle (this is where the wedding was, and holy shit, it’s stunning – I told Phillip that if we ever had a ‘proper’ wedding, this is where we would have it).

I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from our time away with you (there’s also some vlogs from our trip at the end of this post, just in case you wanna watch them)  Continue reading →

Birthday Weekend Away: Rotorua

Rotorua, weekend away, long weekend, vacation, birthday, holiday

Phillip and I went to Rotorua for the weekend; it was my birthday on Saturday and over the past couple of years years it has become a tradition to get out of town for my birthday weekend. This year, it coincides with the Wellington Sevens, and because I don’t like sportsball or large crowds of drunken hooligans ain’t nobody got time for that.   Continue reading →
