  1. Hi Mel,

    Just came across your blog through Busabout's website - really glad I stumbled across it! Have loved reading the posts about your Europe trip in 2013. I'm a Kiwi living in London currently but sadly have to head home in a few months when my visa ends - however before I do that I'm going to do a block of travel around Europe - am looking at getting the flexi pass too :)

    Your bucket list is pretty epic! Very similar to mine as well. If you want any tips on places to check out in NZ let me know.


  2. Hi Priscilla!
    I am so sorry for the late reply! I am a terrible blogger! :)
    I had so much fun travelling around Europe! I wish that I had the sense when I was younger to get a UK working visa!! I am still eligible but being in a relationship (with someone over 30) kinda makes it a bit hard! But I have been telling anyone who will listen to me to do it!!
    I haven't been to NZ yet and it is something I really want to do! But because it is so close from Australia, I feel I need to see all the places most furthest away from AU first, incase accidents happen (babies - hehe) and then lives are complicated! But both my Boyfriend and I really want to drive around NZ one day!
    Thank you so much for your comment! And I hope you have an amazing time before you head home!
