Every year, Wellington hosts a festival of light – glow in the dark, projected, neon, you name it. This year, Mr4 got to attend for the first time
An adventure we’ve waited YEARS to be in a position to actually do – finally on the cards!
Away with work, waking on a clear, crisp, autumn morning. I had time for a walk, and it was worth it – so many beautiful moments in the city.

Do everything, or do nothing. Taupo has you covered both ways, and with great summer weather, we enjoyed as much as we could!
What happens when you take 6 kids tramping? Magic.
36 hours to myself, to do what I wanted. And it rained. I still loved it!
