New Zealand is the perfect destination for a driving holiday, with a higher number of sheep than people you can happily cruise around the country without fear of traffic. Unspoilt, New Zealand offers picture postcard views all around from the snow-capped peaks to stunning alpine lakes and waterfalls. If you like to keep active when you travel you will have ample opportunity with walking and biking tracks, mountains to climb as well as taking advatage of the lakes, bays and mangrove to swim and kayak in. Plus for the adrenaline junkies theres bungee jumping, white water rafting, glacier trekking, downhill mountain biking and much more to get the blood pumping.

While it's the natural side of New Zealand that i love, there's plenty to do in the cities too and no visit is complete without undrestanding more about the Maori history and culture, watching a rugby game and indulging in some New Zealand wine tasting.

Putting your mask beneath the surface and coming face to face with the biggest fish in the ocean is a surreal, electric experience. The sheer size of whale sharks should be daunting but these majestic creatures quickly put you at ease as they slowly, elegantly glide through the water beneath you.

7107 islands make up The Philippines but it was the crystal clear azure waters and exploring what lies beneath that drew me there. 3...

So many times I've tried and failed to visit the famous Figure 8 pools, I must have done every other walk in the National Park before I actually arrived at a suitable time to visit Figure 8!  

The rock platform that houses the pools is only visible and safe to visit at low tide which for a good part of the year is super early or late and usually just for a window of a few hours meaning you have to time your trip correctly.
