    by Kseniia

    "What was the most breathtaking place you’ve been to in New Zealand so far?" This question had me and Alex baffled. I mean, we hardly saw 1/10 of all the fascinating NZ landscapes, but struggled to choose the only one already. But I was never afraid of challenges, so today I’m pushing myself to choose the most spectacular beaches in New Zealand, that we were lucky to soak up the magic of.

    5 best places to live in if you work remotely

    by Kseniia

    Did you ever have this feeling of a prefect match with a town, like you’ve always belonged here though you’re only visiting it as a tourist for a couple of days? Unfortunately, along with this wonderful feeling normally comes another one. Not that shiny and bright. A feeling of being an outsider, someone who can not overcome the difficulties of moving to this place of your dreams. It can be either because of the language you don’t know, expensive cost of living that a new comer can never afford or simply visas restrictions. But here is a deal: if you really want to experience living somewhere else why not to move for a while and work remotely to finance your new lifestyle? Here is my personal top of places where I don’t want to move forever, but would spend some time with the greatest pleasure. Let’s go?

    7 mistakes you possibly can make as an amateur photographer

    by Alex
    Some people (me too, of course) can be scared of the scale of the goal they want to achieve. Sometimes you think that it is almost impossible to become successful in the area of your interest. For example, you have a dream to become a well-known professional photographer, you really like to take pictures but… You are only at the beginning of your career and your way to the top is sooooo long and difficult. But take a deep breath and you will realise that every great person was at this point too. Everyone starts from zero and it is a huge work to become a hero at some point. To inspire you to make first steps in this long way to being a pro photographer I will share with you my thoughts about common amateur mistakes. And hopefully, you will have an opportunity to avoid a lot of them.

    Olivia Bezett about her art: “It was a crazy snap decision”

    by Kseniia

    I remember my 19 yrs old self – not sure whether I’d better go into sports or fashion journalism and if I’m even capable to become a good journalist with all my fears and lack of self-esteem. Saying nothing about close to zero real job experience. And now I meet Olivia. She is 19 and she is a full-time artist for the last three years with her pictures being sold everywhere from New Zealand to, my God, Alaska. That’s what I call an inspiration!

    The ultimate Hawke’s Bay guide

    by Kseniia

    Though the oldest wine region of New Zealand Hawke’s Bay looked intriguing from the very beginning, our journey turned to be beyond any expectations. I don’t know, why it happens sometimes, but something just clicks and you find yourself in the middle of the most perfect trip you could have imagined. That is exactly what happened to us in Hawke’s Bay – we were absolutely enjoying every single moment of being there. Even the one, struggling on the 5 km route around Te Mata peak, melting under the super hot sun and sweating make up (in my case) of:) We loved every corner and view, had only delicious food and met lots of amazing people. The secret behind such a wonderful trip? Plan it yourself! Only you guys know what is perfect for you. Not the Internet, not an experienced guide, it’s you! And this time we planned everything ourselves, so I decided to describe this 3 days tour around Hawke’s Bay for you to know what to start from, if you’re also planning to explore this welcoming region.

    Being truly sociable lately, we’re not missing any interesting events in New Zealand, but somehow still managed to spend four months without attending a single musical festival! And you guys know, we’re a huge fans of good music and big festivals! Remember our annual trips to Alfa Future People in Russia? That’s why we were super excited about an opportunity to visit Bay Dreams in Tauranga yesterday (saying nothing about the first time to be officially invited somewhere as journalists in this country!) Definitely a moment to remember!
