๐Ÿ“š Imagine one of your best memories. Ever. Locked up far in your past. To me this place feels like a memory I can actually revisit in person and feel it all over again. With a new book gifted to me by my beloved. What a life. *Return of the Peaceful Warrior* #nz #waiheke #island #oneroa #book #beach #reading #bliss #memories #love #ocean #explore #exploration #chill #goodlife #fun #adventureisoutthere #followme #likeforfollow #likesforlikes #like4like #follow #instadaily #instalikes #instagrammer

Would you drive for 2 hours one way to a secondhand shop somewhere out in the boonies? Well, if you head to Mayfield it is definitely worth the drive. This shop is filled to the brim with cool things. And there are tiny sheds with what seems like every grandpa's best treasures all in one place. And in the most hidden shed there was also a 1947 Austin 10 named after the love of my life! Choice aye! #alice #nz #newzealand #nzmustdo #explore #vintage #austin #oldtimer #pretty #fun #oldstuff #treasures #travel #travelgram #weekend #withmylove #love #country #drive #follow #like4like #likesforlikes #likeforfollow #followme
Waimakariri river is magical as on a crisp winter morning. Everything sparkles. It's kind of a crystal wonderland.

Very successful arvo sesh. Snags on barbie made with salvage stuff from the backyard. And a nice bottle of wine for reducing the bogan spirit that sparks every too often!

Nostalic memories of the day we wanted to visit Ghibli Museum and ticking off one of my bucket list activities in Tokyo. Hugging Totoro! We found out the miseum is fully booked months in advance. Luckily hanging out in Inkashira park, one of the settings of one of my fav animes (GTO) was fantastic. Such a romantic and idyllic place! #tokyo #japan #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #traditionaljapanese #park #architecture #romantic #withmylove #beauty #explore #japanese #like4like #likeforfollow #likesforlikes #followme #follow #follow4follow #followforfollow #instagood #instadaily
This has been an awesome week in Tokyo. There is so much to do and see and despite racing from place to place every day we barely scatched the surface of this city! We will be back sooner rather than later. Wow! #tokyo #japan #fan #shop #tradition #traditionaljapanese #travel #travelgram #travelgram #explore #urbanexploration #beauty #followforfollow #follow #feelings #followme #followers #instagood #instadaily #instagramers #loveit #like4like #likeforlike #like4follow #likeforlikeback #likeforlikeback #likeforfollow #likesforlikes #instagramjapan
This is the Ramen Museum in Yokohama. Yes, there is such a things as a Ramen Museum! AND we took a freakin bullet train to get there. Just to get the edge off before going to Disneyland. That's right! Because that's how we roll!

Shinjuku by night. Streets packed with people, neon lights everywhere and idol tunes blaring from every corner. We ended up drunk with a bunch of local architects that didn't speak english in a tiny bar that fit up to 8 people. Man did we laugh tho!!! So much fun. On a tuesday night!! Amazing! #shinjuku #tokyo #downtown #lights #street #skyscraper #skyscrapers #fun #funnyshit #night #nightlife #urbanphotography #urbanexploration #urbanexploring #followforfollow #follow #followme #followers #instagood #instadaily #instagramers #like4like #likeforlike #like4follow #likeforlikeback #likeforlikeback #likeforfollow #likesforlikes #instagramjapan #loves_nippon
