3 Years a Wanderess

3 Years a Wanderess

Apr 26, 2016

Happy ‘three years since I left the UK’ to me! I recall being told by various people “you won’t last long, we will probably see you home next month”, “you won’t be any good at travelling long term”, and “you’re not very adventurous”! But here I am, three years on and 10,350 miles away; loving...

Getting Wet with The Legendary Black Water Rafting Co.

Getting Wet with The Legendary Black Water Rafting Co.

Mar 21, 2016

When in New Zealand… go ‘Black Water Rafting’! We decided to check out the famous Waitomo Caves during our North Island road trip and book onto the Abyss tour at The Legendary Black Water Rafting Co. The Abyss is a five hour caving trip and oh em gee it was amazing. To be honest, before we went on this trip, I was a bit over the cold (I still hadn’t...

Getting Wet with Kaitiaki Adventures

Getting Wet with Kaitiaki Adventures

Jan 28, 2016

So apparently New Zealand is home to some pretty epic adventures. I’m usually pretty keen to get stuck in to adrenalin fueled activities, but this one had to be up there on the scary scale! Kaitiaki Adventures are a company in Rotorua that take crazy people (like myself) out to the Kaituna River to raft down 14 rapids and 3 waterfalls, one being 7 meters; the...

Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Nov 25, 2015

  A recent quick trip down to Sydney saw us on the top of the bottom of the world! I’d always wanted to climb the world-renowned Sydney Harbour Bridge and after five months of living in Sydney and staring at the thing every day, it was only when I got to Byron Bay I actually bit the bullet and decided to booked it!   After celebrating being back in...

Travel is a Matter of Perspective

Travel is a Matter of Perspective

Mar 14, 2015

I may have been a bit harsh in my first few posts on Totally Sam’s World back in 2012. I remember saying that some people waste their holidays in five star hotels that could be anywhere in the world, saying they are travelling but not seeing the real world. But in the past year or so I have realised that travel is a matter of perspective. Just because their...

Free Falling

Free Falling

Feb 24, 2015

I’ve always wanted to skydive, ever since I was a little girl. I’m not really sure why… perhaps I thought it was as close to flying as I’d ever get; feeling as free as a bird! Well, a bird who free falls at speeds of 200 km per hour from 14,000 ft! After a year and a half in Australia I finally managed to bite the bullet and get it...
