The unforgettable Trans-Siberian journey! This is just a little introduction to the travel story about the trip which started in Russia, took us through Mongolia and finished all the way in Beijing.
Train ride across Siberia, a week in Gobi Desert and climb to the Great Wall of China are just some of the highlights of this amazing trip. We loved every second of it and if you are enjoying traveling by train, this adventure should be on the top of your bucket list.
Wandering around the bush is one of my favourite things to do in New Zealand.
What I like the most about these beautiful places are sounds of the birds twittering, murmur of the wind breaking through the tree crowns and the colours of this amazing nature touched with warm sun rays.
Last weekend we went for a stroll around the Long Hilly Walking Track. It’s a nice place and a short walk not far away from Invercargill and just a few minutes from Colac Bay.
We definitely didn’t walk fast and it took us around one hour to do the loop walk even though at the entrance to the bush it was written that it takes 2.15h.
This place once was the southern most and largest Chinese mining settlement. The gold was discovered in the area back in 1870s and still along the way you can see historic sites related to gold mining operations.
It’s been a while but here I am back from the trip around New Caledonia. It was perfect! When deciding where to go during Xmas holidays this small Pacific country popped up and there we were standing on those beautiful sandy beaches, strolling around small villages and amazing islands for two weeks.
New Caledonia is still not crazy popular tourist destination and that’s a huge plus. It wasn’t hard to find unique, silent places with beautiful views of the lagoon.
When to go, where to go, how to travel around and what not to miss while in Nouvelle Caledonie you will read here in my next posts.
