A mo­ment of calm

Igrew up in a town of 10,000 peo­ple that I thought was a big city – turns out it re­ally wasn’t! I was never into travel, I was al­ways go­ing to get into busi­ness, and peo­ple had also told me that cre­ativ­ity isn’t for ev­ery­one.

I came to New Zealand to study Eng­lish but the school that I was at went into re­ceiver­ship af­ter two months, caus­ing me to lose my visa. I started trav­el­ling and fell in love with the coun­try, and also the idea of trav­el­ling. I fin­ished my de­gree in Christchurch, went back to Aus­tria, packed up my things and bought a one-way ticket to New Zealand. That’s where it all be­gan – that was five and a half years ago. I told my­self if I don’t do it now, I’ll never do it.

As a travel blog­ger, ev­ery day is diˆer­ent. I live in Auck­land but I’m on the road a lot. I’m ei­ther over­seas for sev­eral months at a time or if I’m in

New Zealand, I am never sure when the next trip will pop up.

My shoot es­sen­tials Now in­clud­ing my new favourite, Bell White Tea Lemon & Honey flavour. I like to add a slice of lemon, it’s just so good.
