•A Day in Rotorua•


I have recently spent a week on the North Island of New Zealand, and during one of the days we were in and around Rotorua. Rotorua is, although slightly smelly, a beautiful destination where I actually experienced some of my favourite parts of our whole holiday! I say smelly because Rotorua is actually in a spot of intense geothermal activity, which can sometimes create a rather stinky effect when the gases are released from the earth. The smell is created by hydrogen sulphide emissions, giving the town the nicknames “Sulphur City” and, apparently, “Rotten-rua”, which is a personal favourite of mine. However, the geothermal activity also means that there are several natural warm springs in which you can take a beautiful warm swim. Continue reading •A Day in Rotorua•

•What to do in Queenstown•

Bonjour à tous!

I am finally back and blogging after my New Zealand holiday. I had a fantastic adventure and I am so grateful for that. One of the first places we went on our trip was beautiful, vibrant commerce and thrill-seeker centre Queenstown. I quite liked the vibe of Queenstown, as the weather was beautifully cool whilst we were there, and the whole town was set against a mountainous backdrop. It is definitely a place for backpackers, and whilst there I must admit I didn’t get served by a single Kiwi whilst I was there! Mr Czech and I stayed there overnight, and we woke up to a gorgeous view in the morning. Without further adieu, here is my recommended list of things to do in Queenstown!

•February Favourites•

Bonjour à tous!

This month has been quite busy and I have had a lot to organise and prepare for. I have several favourites to share with you that I have been really enjoying. I have been trying to cultivate wellness in my life through my food, fitness, and skincare. As a University student and blogger, I am often in my room. Therefore, I like to be surrounded by lovely things and inspirational pictures, patterns, scents and plants. Without further adieu, here are my favourites for the month of February.

•7 little things you can do to be happy•

Bonjour à tous!

Some say that everyone is always telling us how to be happy, and we end up chasing this elusive state of happiness. If we just let go of the chase, happiness will come to us. Whilst I would tend to agree that chasing happiness isn’t the best way to go about it: I believe that there are little things that you can do each day in order to cultivate a content and happy life.

• Why you should try Ballet as an adult •

Bonjour à tous!

I hope you are well. Every time I tell people that I dance ballet, they have a tendency to assume I started at around age 4 and therefore am a super-flexible multi-talented dancer.

This, unfortunately, is quite far from the truth. I started dancing about three years ago after having thought about it many times, and I’ll tell you what, I am so glad that I did. Continue reading • Why you should try Ballet as an adult •

•A great place for a day trip•

Bonjour tout le monde!

There are so many gorgeous hidden places to go hiking within Adelaide and its surrounds. One of these places is Brownhill Creek. Just a 15-20 minute drive from the CBD, it is a great place to go for a day trip. I took several photos of the beautiful natural scenes whilst I was there which I’ll share with you in this post!

Bonjour à tous!

In my recent free time, I have been pursuing my interests in languages and linguistics a little more determinedly. Whilst engaging in this, I have found several interesting quotes and excerpts and I thought: why not share them with you?

I hope you enjoy these little excerpts as much as I did. Continue reading •Excerpts of interest to the language lover•
