Winter is coming ❄️ we just had our winter solstice here in New Zealand and the shortest day of the year, time to head back to the snowy mountains, like snowshoeing on the Tasman Glacier with @mtcookglacierguidingnz and @mtcookskiplanesandhelis

Confession - I came to Hong Kong pretty much just to eat. And my god did it not disappoint! Hong Kong is a foodies paradise, pack your leggings and an empty stomach 😍 egg waffles are one of my favorite street snacks and when @taramilktea told me about a place that does egg waffles + gelato, well I didn't need much convincing 💥 @fshongkong lifewelltravelled allthenoms

Are you guys watching my Stories? // You'd be crazy to come to Hong Kong and not stay somewhere with a baller view ☀️ I sat in my room at the @fshongkong for hours watching the boats go by (where were they going? Who was on board?) and the clouds drift across the skyline ❤️ a day dreamer at heart, I always make time when I'm traveling to just sit and soak in wherever I am, even in this hectic fast paced world 🌎 fourseasonsHK lifewelltravelled

I wish I could take all the credit for inspiring my parents to travel to Ireland ☘️ but in fact it all belongs to @dunbrodyhouse_ireland in Co. Wexford. They are big fans of @kevindundon an amazing Irish chef and dreamed of staying at his beautiful Georgian style country house hotel 🇮🇪 I love hearing all the different sparks that ignite our love for travel and what inspires people to take that big step out the front door ☺️ thatbluedoor

Cobh might have been the cutest town we visited in Ireland 😍 it was also the Titanic's last stop before going out to sea, and 2.5 million Irish who eventually immigrated to the US would have left through here. In fact, it used to be called Queenstown, small world @tourismireland loveireland

Now that's what I call a swing bridge! Funny story, I first visited the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge in @discoverni way back when in 2008 while backpacking in Europe after a year of studying in Spain. My little point and shoot camera broke right before Ireland, so I used a disposable film camera for the last time. Oh how times have changed ☀️loveireland @tourismireland

What do you look for in a hotel? I look for coziness, comfort, a big bath, fast free wifi and a good desk I can work at (since I'm never *actually* on a vacation) and dope breakfasts, all of which the @merrionhotel in Dublin had in abundance. These days I spend almost half my year in hotels and beds that aren't mine, so in the absence of my own home, I look to recreate it when I'm traveling. My days of hostel bunk beds are long long long behind me. All part of growing up I suppose and starting new chapters. Dublin, I miss you already ☘️bigcozybed

Wicklow was one of my favorite places in Ireland, and I reckon one of the best kept secrets. A rugged, wild national park, it makes you feel like you're wandering the moors and heaths from an Emily Bronte novel @tourismireland loveireland

I loved driving along the Coastal Causeway route in Northern Ireland 🚗 you never know what amazing gems you might stumble upon there, especially when you make a wrong turn. I thought this was just a fancy moat and castle entrance, when I googled it later, it turns out that is actually a miniature castle in Ulster you can stay in called Barbican 😱 why did no one tell me this?! @tourismireland loveireland

Celebrated my birthday this year with my parents in the adorable Irish town of Kinsale 🎉 we spent the afternoon wandering the colorful streets, popping into the cute shops, hanging out by the harbor before tucking into a fabulous feed at @finnstable ☺️ living abroad I don't often get to spend birthdays with family, so this was extra special @tourismireland loveireland

I remember at one point I thought about becoming a flight attendant so I could travel more ✈️ This week I'm following the @lufthansa crew stories as they take you around the world from the point of view of their flight crew - I've always wondered where they sleep on long haul flights! Follow their Snapchat channel ( @lufthansa) this week to see what they're up to in NYC! LHCrewConnections PS - I'm also back on Snapchat, have you missed my oversharing yet? | YoungAdventures

I'm currently making my way around Ireland with my parents, are you following my stories on Instagram? I'm laptop-less at the moment, my screen broke the other day, and I feel quite naked without it. I also managed to eat bread that had contact with peanut butter (I'm super allergic). It's a good reminder to roll with the punches and shit happens on the road. Still having the best time with my family (when they aren't driving me bonkers) and can't wait to share more of our adventures soon! Ireland has blown me away every day! What are some of your travel mishaps?
