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.

I am finally back and blogging after my New Zealand holiday. I had a fantastic adventure and I am so grateful for that.

Bonjour à tous!
As some of you may know, I am headed to New Zealand this week, which I am super excited about! I am trying to get everything organised and make sure that I am all ready for this fantastic adventure. We are going to be touring around the South and North Island over a two-week period and seeing a lot in a limited amount of time. I am expecting a lot of hiking, sightseeing, beautiful nature and fun times.
I have travelled enough now to know what I would need to bring as my carry-on baggage. I have a little set of things that I like to have on hand when I am on the plane, and I thought I would share them with you! Continue reading •What’s in my travel bag•
