Welcome to our travel blog!
Hello to anyone and everyone who is interested in reading about what our adventures are travellers. We are mostly writing this blog for us to be able to look back and reflect on our adventures whilst we are slaving away in the office earning money to go on these adventures.
We will be travelling to America for 6 weeks. We depart on May 20th. This will be the day of our first blog post. We are travelling to Sydney that day and staying there the night as we have a relatively early flight in the morning.
We are flying with Air New Zealand from Sydney to Auckland with a 2 hour stop-over and then from Auckland to Los Angeles. As this is our first time flying Air New Zealand, we are hoping to see some brilliant in-flight instructional video including hobbits. That would be fun.
On our trip we are spending 3 and a half days in Los Angeles exploring on our own. Following this, we are embarking on Contiki’s Grand Southern tour which takes us across 23 US states over 25 days and ends in New York. Following the tour we are staying in New York for a additional 6 days and then flying to Oahu, Hawaii to enjoy our remaining 5 days where we will almost certainly require some relaxation before we return home. We have never been to American before and are looking forward to what it has in store for us!
We have purchased a Go Pro Hero 5 so that we can create video montages of the destinations and adventures. While we are complete amateurs at video editing, we have watched many a Youtube tutorial video. We will see how this turns out. We are big believers in the video medium. It is possibly the best way to capture a moment and memory. We won’t be posting them for at least a few weeks after returning from our trip as the editing process will take a while. However, we are excited to venture into video production. We’ll post them on our Youtube channel.
We look forward to sharing our adventures with the readers of this blog and reflecting back on the memories we create.
The next update will occur on the night of the 20th of May. We hope for this to be the trip of a lifetime!
Ronnie & Aimee.
