Kia ora and Welcome to Exploring Kiwis

Meet the two two travel-mad New Zealanders, Sarah and Nathan, that call this little piece of the internet their own…

We’re here to share our experiences of travelling with you – the good, the bad and the ugly (though let’s face it, most of the time it’s amazing!)  Having just returned home to New Zealand after being based in the Middle East and South America for 2.5 years, we’ve been fortunate to travel broadly (all whilst documenting many of our experiences here).

We’re passionate about maximising the time we spend in each place we visit, experiencing what makes each location unique and having an adventure; we try to do so at a range of budgets, ensuring everyone has access to these memorable experiences.  

Whether you’re looking to save a bit of money or splurge, we’re here to help you seek out once-in-a-lifetime experiences (though we can’t guarantee you won’t love them so much, you’ll want to do them over and over!)

We’re excited to connect with those of you who share a common love of travel – thanks for coming along for the ride!

Happy travels,

What Makes Us Tick?

Head Blogger

Having worked for our national airline, as a tour guide and now as a teacher, Sarah is as passionate about working with people as she is travel. She’s cat obsessed, loves being out in nature and is always day dreaming of her next adventure (which normally includes a good dose of adrenaline and an ethical wild-animal encounter or two).


Working away in the background, Nathan also plays a key role in Exploring Kiwis’ success. Though he’ll seldom admit it, he enjoys travelling just as much as his wife, Sarah!   Nathan absolutely loves trance music and snorkelling/diving and given the chance, would travel the world to do both on the drop of a dime!
