about


Hey! I'm Ariana, a twenty-something kiwi girl with a heart for exploring, an overwhelming desire to travel, and a passion for photography. currently a communications major, trying to figure out this thing we call life, and forever feeling the luckiest to be dating engaged MARRIED (!!!!) to my best friend.

This blog originally started out as a space to share the travels and adventures we were embarking on with our family and friends during our time in North America & Hawaii, but upon returning to New Zealand in May twenty-fourteen, it didn't feel right to put a fullstop on a space that we have poured our experiences into and force closure onto somewhere we have documented some of our most precious memories.

I have no idea where this blog is going to go but I do know that even though the first big adventure has come to an end, I want to continue to document the small, seemingly insignificant moments... so that one day I can look back and smile and remember the good times, the bad times, and everything in between.

Lets be friends!

    1. You're so sweet! Thank you! I bought a basic minimalistic template off etsy and have been in the process of tweaking it myself here and there to get it how I like it :) so happy to be following you too!

  2. I've just stumbled across your blog- and let me just say- I absolutely love it! It has this sense of serenity (with a message) that I haven't found in most other blogs.

  9. Firstly can I say I love love love your photographs! I'm soo happy to have come across your blog! My boyfriend and I have decided to do the same thing :) blogging our travels and little road trips within Victoria, Australia. I find myself looking back and cherishing these small moments - my only regret is not starting sooner! (we've been together for almost 5 years now) Look forward to more NZ posts, as we'll be heading over for a holiday there later in the year :) x
