Memories of @skiheavenly through a crystal ball. Goodbye Tahoe, goodbye California, goodbye USA...time to go home now. You're a beauty.

Woke to 10" new snow overnight at @skiheavenly ❄️💕 And how cold was it? Cold enough for this tree to still be covered in icicles at 3.30pm.

Such a perfect day to start my ski adventure at @skiheavenly - blue skies, no crowds and this stunning view of Lake Tahoe! Everyone keeps telling me what a bumper of a season I missed last year...but to be honest, I'm not complaining when I get to ski to a backdrop of this sexy place! Where are yo

I love this shot of the Golden Gate Bridge because of the silhouette of the birds flying over it. Just perfect timing as I was biking back to Fisherman's Wharf. Shot handheld from Nikon D7200 | 220mm | 1/80sec / | f5.3 | ISO 400

I love the way the sunsets linger here in San Francisco. Mid-winter, not a cloud in the sky. Truly a golden gate.

How gorgeous is the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset? This is my first trip to San Francisco - and wow! I can understand why so many people love it here. Yesterday I cycled over the bridge; such a fabulous way to explore the city. Do you like hiring a bike to explore new places? Walk? Drive? Public tra

Oh New Zealand, you beauty! My sister is so lucky to have the Abel Tasman National Park on her back door step! What a view...who wants to take a dip?! 🏊🏼‍♀️

Ah the Abel Tasman National Park...never a bad day here. Except the time we woke up to find mice had eaten our chocolate in the campsite 😒

One of my all-time favourite places in New Zealand for summer is the Abel Tasman National Park near Nelson. You can hike or kayak around the beautiful bays and inlets, short walks to multi-day excursions for the full track. It was after a couple of days kayaking together here two years ago that Jo

Is New Zealand on your travel list for 2018? We love the lakes in the South Island - although they're a bit chilly to take a dip in, even in the middle of the summer!

Fully in love with #Queenstown and the ever changing hues of its lake. So excited that it will become our future home! Have you visited Queenstown before? Was it a summer holiday spot or winter playground?

Happy New Year! We've said goodbye to 2017 and now we're kicking off 2018 in the sunshine in Queenstown - the adventure capital of New Zealand! Where are you beginning 2018?

What an amazing year 2017 has been - what was your travel highlight? Favourite country? Most exciting adventure? One of my highlights was snorkelling the Silfra in Iceland for sure!

What an amazing year

The water visibility in the Silfra fissure in Iceland can easily reach 100m. Did you know it's so pure you can even drink from it? So if you get thirsty mid-snorkel...you know what to do 🤣

I can't believe I finally ticked off the number one item on my bucket list - snorkelling the Silfra Fissure in Iceland! I wanted to scuba dive but I'm not drysuit certified, a requirement these days. Did you know the Silfra fissure is the gap between the North American and Eurasian continental plate
