And finally, New Zealand

I've wanted to visit New Zealand for years, but it always just felt so far away and expensive. I'm so, so glad we chose to spend time here and would highly recommend going if you're planning a trip to Australia - it's only another 3 hour flight from Sydney and SO worth it.

Christmas in Australia

Sydney

After an 8 hour flight from Singapore, we arrived in sunny (40 degrees) Sydney. We were greeted at the arrivals gate by Laura and David (is there anything better than being greeted by people you love at the gate in an airport?!) Stepping outside to go to the car, I was shocked by the heat. Obviously, we still lay in the sun at the pool all day anyway - we're British.  That evening we caught up with the whole family (we were staying with our friends, the Johnston’s) - shout out for being amazing hosts :)

First stop, Singapore

For the last few years, it's been on my bucket list to visit Australia and New Zealand. In 2017, Scott and I finally managed to make the dream a reality, booking a month long trip over Christmas. Taking into account that this could be a once in a lifetime trip, we decided to go for it and do everything we wanted. We had a budget, but we also didn't want not do something we really wanted because of money. The plan was Singapore > Sydney > the Whitsunday Islands > Brisbane > South Island, NZ (road trip!) The trip was even more perfect than I could have ever wished for, and the happiness it brings me now when I think about it or look at the photos is priceless. Over the next few posts, I'm going to share the highlights from each place we visited, and some of the best photos I took! Hopefully it might inspire your next travel plans. And sorry in advance, it could be wordy...
