My capacity to be amazed by the movement of time is limitless, it seems – is it really the end of January already?! I felt like I had hibernated for much of the wintry month but looking back it’s not quite true… I started 2018 partying in Amsterdam, was dazzled by the lights of Lumiere London, and escaped to the seaside where, miraculously, it was sunny!
Most popular Instagram for January:
Cheeky street art in Islington
Had so much fun co-hosting a baby shower for friends

The Lumiere London light festival took over the city for four nights – it was so much fun, especially the interactive art!
My favourite installation – drumming on the tubes made beautiful music
I will never tire of the sunrise view from Millennium Bridge
Getting fresh sea air and sunshine at Botany Bay in Kent
Two sunny days – what even is this England?! I’ll take it!
Favourite posts this month:
- My Favourite Adventures of 2017: what a year of amazing travels, from NZ to Amsterdam and everywhere in between!
- 5 Awesome Things to Do in Granada: one of my favourite places I visited last year, thanks to Zoe and Tom as my “local” guides I got to explore a lot of this beautiful city
- A One Week Road Trip through Sunny Southern Spain: rounding up all the places we visited on our road-trip last summer, with lots of highs, no lows, but what we might have done differently as well
So what does February hold for me? I’m hoping to have another weekend escape, whether it’s just out of London or jumping on a plane… watch this space! This weekend I’m cranking out the costume and putting my liver in possible peril at the annual Waitangi Day pub crawl – can’t wait to see what ingenious costumes my fellow New Zealanders come up with. Towards the end of the month I’m heading to the NME music awards and finally getting to see Bon Iver – so lots of good music to end the month! What does February hold for you?
