I’ve always wanted to visit Cambodia, I mean, who doesn’t want to see the silhouette of Angkor Wat against a backdrop of an epic sunrise? So, when I saw the opportunity to take some leave and set off on a quick adventure (inspired by a string of public holidays), Cambodia shot straight to the...

Natasha’s Highlights of NZ’s South Island with Kirra Tours

For a small country New Zealand has a big personality and so much to offer in terms of scenery and experiences. I’ve always been a fan and have visited a few times before, however, my ‘must-see’ list continually gets longer rather than smaller. I was recently lucky enough to cross another...

Natasha Rides the TranzAlpine with Kirra Tours

I have wanted to try out New Zealand’s TranzAlpine railway between Christchurch and Greymouth for years. Everyone who has taken the journey through the Canterbury Plains and the stunning Southern Alps has raved about it, so it had cemented its place on my ‘must-do’ list a while ago. Lucky for...

Natasha gets Enchanted by the Danube with Uniworld

I spent 8 glorious days cruising down the Danube with Uniworld and it blew me away. Now I’ll be honest, I didn’t know if I was a ‘cruiser’ when I decided to take this trip. I wasn’t sure what to expect and being in the travel industry I tend to scrutinise everything on holiday – I compare...

Natasha Takes the Backroads of Southern Italy

I grew up in a tiny town where the only main street is about 200m long, the road out to my farm is mostly just one-lane, and it’s natural to wave at every car you pass as you rattle off onto the gravel curb. Safe to say, getting off the beaten track with Back-Roads was right up my alley! I...
