    Ever tried airplane karaoke?

    Swifties are taking the world by storm and especially Kiwis. Taylor Swift has finished one of her shows in Melbourne where Kiwis flying back home didn't let the energy dial down just yet. Passengers onboard the 4 hour NZ128 flight back home from Melbourne had one of Taylor's hits "Shake it Off" playing during the flight with the Eras concert goers were singing and standing during the flight.

    4 wheels or 2? Here's one of the best destinations to explore using a scooter!

    When you think Italy you probably think Ferrari. Well, we think you should choose... Vespa! Italy is home to one of the most historically beautiful countries and monuments in the world. Flying by in your Ferrari won't let you enjoy the views. Slow down and take it in with a 2-wheeled wonder. The urban streets filled with culture and the Italian countryside, either of which are perfectly suited for the iconic moped and is definitely a must-do on your bucket list.
  • Slide 3

Hotel Indigo Potts Point is the name and it's taking Sydney by storm as it sits right behind the iconic "Coke sign" in Sydney. The hotel brings past and future together in a boutique and luxurious way.

    Living life on the rails.

    The world’s most famous train has just opened a brand new route. Crossing from Paris to Portofino, the 2 day journey won’t only give you an experience of a lifetime, it will also set you back $8,500 one way. The heritage and prestige onboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express has never seen the Ligurian coast in its lifetime. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience which should not be overlooked.
