Travel Diary: Sunshine Coast Part 2

Here we are, on my last travel diary from my trip around the pacific ocean. Sydney, Nouméa, Mystery Island, Port Vila, Lifou, Sydney, Queenstown, Milford Sound and finally Sunshine Coast, what a trip! I’m so grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to go on this magical trip through 8 cities within 4 countries. I got home three months ago, but the memories from this…

Travel Diary: Queenstown Part 2

What do you do when you travel to the adventure capital of the world? Go on an adventure, of course! When we researched Queenstown in New Zealand, we found out that they had the world’s biggest swing. I thought it looked amazing, so I gave my little brother a tandem ride with me on it…

Travel Diary: Queenstown Part 1

Let’s continue with my trip around the Pacific Ocean which I did in December. After Sydney, it was time to head over to New Zealand and the adventure capital of the world, Queenstown. We never went to New Zealand when we lived in Australia in 2016, and I said that I’m not going to fly across…

Travel Diary: Sydney Part 3

And just like that, we have reached my last travel diary from Sydney. Why am I saying “just like that”? I got home from my trip around the Pacific Ocean two months ago and still aren’t done, haha. Anyway, here is what our last day in Sydney looked like, which was quite special in a bad way….

Travel Diary: Sydney Part 2

On our second day in Sydney, we had our eyes set on Bondi Beach. I mean, did you even visit Sydney if you didn’t touch the Opera House and take a swim at Bondi Beach? Haha! We had read that there’s a beautiful coastal walk leading to Bondi and decided to walk it. Said and done, after breakfast, we…

Travel Diary: Sydney Part 1

After our 9 day long cruise, we arrived back to Sydney, Australia on December 8th. We arrived in the morning and my boyfriend, my dad and I got up at 5 am to watch the arrival from up on deck. Arriving at Sydney by ship while the sun rises is not something you do every…

Travel Diary: At Sea Part 2

When we sailed away from Lifou, we had two days at sea before we got back to Australia. I was almost as bad at taking photos during these days at sea as I was on the first two days of this cruise. One morning though, I decided to go on a little photography stroll. I…

Travel Diary: Lifou

Let’s go back to my cruise around the Pacific Ocean which I went on in December! My mom scolded me last week for “uploading rainy Stockholm photos” when she wanted to see more photos from our trip, haha! So on behalf of my mother, here is our fourth and last stop of the cruise –…

Travel Diary: Port Vila

Let’s continue with my travel diaries, this time from Port Vila! Our third stop on our cruise was the capital of Vanuatu, Port Vila. This was my least favorite stop on this whole trip because I hated being a tourist there. Vanuatu has only been independent since 1980. Like many other “new” countries, they are dependent on…

Travel Diary: Mystery Island

The day after our stop in Nouméa, we visited Mystery Island which is one of the islands in Vanuatu. I have dreamt about visiting Vanuatu since 2016 when Disney’s Moana was released. The movie is inspired by many different islands in the Pacific Ocean and I saw a documentary about the story’s origin. In that…
