Kia Ora and Malo!

My name is Alana.


I have been lucky enough to have a career as a tour guide around the world for the past 13 years. Throughout it, I have developed a passion for travelling and infusing people I travel with, with a passion for the random.

With everyday life we can get complacent, we don’t take notice of the simple beauty in life and stop exploring. Through this blog I hope to break through this complacency and showcase some popular spots found around Dunedin, NZ, in a unique way, with the hope that a new appreciation of these places will be created.

I want to open up these places, shake them up and allow readers to explore and appreciate the little or unknown ‘sciency’ facts that┬ámake up the tapestry of Dunedin.

It’s all about taking a different spin on places we see every day.

It’s all about looking at things with a new lens.

I hope you enjoy my take on this awesome city!

Feel free to contact me if you want a certain area featured or if you have a random (but awesome) story everyone needs to know!
