My name is Hayley and this site is first and foremost a hobby, an outlet for my creative impulses. I’m just your average person who loves to travel, albeit an activity that is limited to periodic bursts of anything up to a few weeks in length.
I’ve dabbled with blogs before, focused as travel diaries for a couple of trips. I enjoyed doing them and was sorry when they came to an end, eventually concluding that I had to set up a more long-term endeavour.
This will be an assortment of entries about past and present travels, the big stuff and the small stuff. While overseas holidays are the big highlights, especially when you live in a fairly remote outpost like New Zealand, I think it’s important to see the place where you live as well. So over time there will be plenty of NZ-based quick trips and events.
The blog name is a reference to my height – which can make long haul travel very long indeed… I live in Wellington and work as an IT programme manager. The best thing about my job is that it funds this blog and the activities within it!
