This post includes affiliate links from Booking.com Day 10   We flew into Queenstown where we stayed at Pinewood Lodge - fairly priced and walking distance from the city center.

After being in Australia for 7 months, my partner and I decided that it was time to head back home to Denmark.

However, getting there took some time and a couple of really stressful days. This is our view over the city... Before we left for Australia I had booked us a couple of nights at a hostel. Even though I had spent several hours searching for apartments online I ... Read More

All in all the culture is not so very different from the Danish culture, but the weather is a whole lot better... The beautiful Treasury Hotel We stayed at Minto (hostel) which is located on the South side of the river in West End. From there we could easily walk ... Read More
So, projects have been a little slow lately because I have been working on something completely different: Moving to Australia. I am so excited and a little bit nervous - I mean, it's on the other side of the Earth. Getting my passport ready | Passport Cover from Etsy When I was 20 I went to Namibia (Africa) and then Australia as part of a gap year. In Namibia I did ... Read More
