New Zealand: Adventure Queenstown

When you think of Queenstown you think adventure activities. After all it is the adrenaline capital of the world, so it would be rude to not give it a good run for its money.

Whistler: Ski season

Whistler: Ski season

I have recently been living in the ski town, Whistler. Based in British Columbia for the winter 2017/18. Being able to live and work here has been a dream come true. Everyone I have met during my time just made it that much more special!

The idealistic scenery that surrounded me during the 6 months I was here was the icing on the cake. I know that what I am able to pass on will be only the tip of the iceberg for many who go and visit but these are the things that I am recommending 100% to anyone who is planning on spending any extended time around my winter home.

The two parts I will be producing are linked in below.

Part 1 – Where to eat and what to expect

Part 2 – Things to do both on and off the ski slopes
