Hi! I’m Sarah and thanks so much for stopping by.

First Things First

Why Fuzzy Green Fruit? Well, I’m a kiwi. I’m from New Zealand where we grow some of the world’s yummiest kiwifruit (as we call them) and where our national emblem is the flightless kiwi bird. This kiwi however has been lucky enough to fly to over 60 countries and in this, my little corner of the departure lounge, I’d like to share my experiences, ideas and suggested itineraries with you.

My Travel Experience

Although I grew up in New Zealand, I was in fact born in England, so my first travel experience was by ship when I was about 7 months old and we were returning to my dad’s native New Zealand…..I still have my certificate for crossing the Equator and I’m reliably informed (by my mum!) that I donned a little bikini and swam in the Caribbean!

Since then, I’ve enjoyed a lot of wonderful travel experiences, although many of my early days of travelling were at a time when there were no such things as smart phones, cameras needed their film changing, you had to visit an internet cafe to check your emails and apples and blackberries were types of fruit! Much has changed since then but my love of travelling has not.

Today I tend to travel with group tours if I am visiting multiple destinations or under my own steam if I’m making a city break. Either way, I hope that you will find my experiences helpful in aiding you in not only deciding whether to visit a particular city or country, but in developing your own itinerary for when you arrive there.

A Bit More About Me

As if all that wasn’t enough here’s a few more facts about me:

  • I’m a lawyer (I’ve even been able to combine work and travel with a secondment to Moscow)
  • I love to read
  • I like all things sweet and savoury but….
  • I don’t like bananas, pineapples and olives
  • I might be a New Zealander, but I’ve never done a bungee jump or watched any of the Lord of the Rings movies
  • I’m just as happy kayaking in Costa Rica as I am sitting in a casino in Las Vegas
  • Some of my favourite travel experiences include seeing polar bears in northern Canada, visiting the Taj Mahal in India, going inside the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt and enjoying a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti in Tanzania to name a few!

I hope you enjoy your stopover here with me – please drop me a line and say hello or pop on over and follow me on social media.
