Valparaíso: city of street art and squeaky funiculars
Steep streets, beautiful views and famous street art – that was our one day trip to Valparaíso. This coastal town that is about an hour and a half from Santiago is definitely worth visiting. Especially, if you stay in Santiago for a few days and have a spare day like us.
West Coast Surf Trip
This is a story of a few brave souls chasing waves on West Coast of South Island during one long weekend. How many smashed avocados on toast were consumed? Could they surf next to a blowhole? And did they manage to find the perfect ride?
Avalanche Peak and autumn in Arthur’s Pass
A lovely autumn weekend in South Island when we stretched our legs during an arduous hike to Avalanche Peak, the 1833m summit with grand views of Canterbury landscape.
New Caledonia: vanilla from Lifou and vibrant Noumea
The final part of our trip led us to a small island of Lifou where we chilled on white sand beaches, went snorkeling in tranquil water as well as learned some interesting facts about the life of a vanilla fruit. The last few hours we spent wandering around vibrant Noumea before a plane took us back home.
New Caledonia: magnificent colours of Great South
Red, green and blue, those are the colours which describe Great South. During a short time, we explored Parc Provincial de la Rivière Bleue with its drowned forest, admired views over lake Yate and visited a small sleepy town under Yate dam.
