New Zealand Campervan Ultimate Trip – The Great Crusade Interviews

The Great Crusade - New Zealand Campervan Ultimate Tour

The Great Crusade – an Awesome New Zealand Campervan Trip for the Qantas Wallabies. Well, this is my last post about The Great Crusade. I had an awesome time thanks to Qantas, but all good things must come to an end and normal service on The Travel Tart resumes next week. To finish off these […]

Whangarei Falls, New Zealand. Unusual Bikini Spot?

Whangerei Falls New Zealand

Whangerei Falls, New Zealand – What the Hell Photo! After a half day Sea Kayak trip, I checked out Whangerei Falls as part of The Great Crusade. It’s a nice spot to visit and chill out for a while, and it’s been marketed as one of the most photogenic falls in the Land of Many […]

Kayak Tours in the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand. The Real, and Fake of It!

Sea Kayak New Zealand

Kayak Tours – I’m awesome ballast! As part of The Great Crusade junket, we went on a cool NZ Seakayaking trip. This was good timing because I could feel my waistline expanding from the constant days of eating, drinking and not doing much exercise. Plus being inside a campervan was causing me some cabin fever, so […]

Australia vs Ireland Rugby at Eden Park, Auckland New Zealand – Great Craic!

Australia vs Ireland Rugby Eden Park Auckland New Zealand

Australia Vs Ireland – Is always good fun! As part of The Great Crusade, Qantas kindly shouted me a ticket to a big Australia vs Ireland Rugby Union game at Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand. I’ve been to a Wallabies vs Ireland game before in Australia. They’re usually a very thin disguise for a […]

Tall Ships Sailing In The Bay Of Islands, New Zealand

Replica Sailing Boat

Tall Ships Fun Time! The R. Tucker Thompson is a schooner (that is a member of the Tall Ships class, not a glass of measurement that contains beer) that sails around the Bay of Islands region of New Zealand, taking out loads of people who like a day out on the bay. As part of The […]

Bay Of Islands Tour Guide in Russell, New Zealand

Bay Of Islands Tour Guide – With A Difference Meet Alan from the Bay of Islands on the North Island of New Zealand. He’s one of the funniest guys I’ve met in a long time. He looks after the Russell Top 10 Holiday Park that we were staying in as part of The Great Crusade, a […]

Sky Jump in Auckland, New Zealand. Adrenalin Junkie Paradise

Sky Jump at Sky Tower Auckland New Zealand

Sky Jump = Crap Your Pants Stuff! As part of the very cool ‘The Great Crusade’ junket, a couple of crazy punters decided to have a crack at the Sky Jump in Auckland after foolishly doing the Sky Walk. This is basically flying down the side of the very high Sky Tower at speeds normally […]

Rugby Games – Australia vs Italy Behind The Scenes

Rugby Games - Australia vs Italy Lineout

Rugby Games – The Social Side. I like going to sporting events. It’s not necessarily for the actual sport – it’s for the peripheral events that go on around the place. For example, some of the funny fans and characters that get dressed up in different variations of the National colours. Plus going to the […]

Sky Walk in Auckland, New Zealand. Wet, Windy and Crazy!

Sky Walk Auckland New Zealand

Sky Walk – Brown Underpants Time! As part of The Great Crusade, the nice people from Qantas sent us up a tall tower in the centre of Auckland, New Zealand so we could walk on a platform 1.5 metres up, 192 metres above the ground on a windy day. What I’m referring to is the Sky […]

The Great Crusade Launch for the Qantas Wallabies – Washed Out!

YTravelBlog Craig Makepeace The Travel Tart

The Great Crusade – was pissed on down from a great height! Woo hoo, I’m here in New Zealand, and I currently driving around the North Island in a campervan with Craig from as part of The Great Crusade, and soaking up what this great country has to offer. As mentioned in my article about […]
