Wallace & Gromit and Friends: The Magic of Aardman exhibition - ACMI Melbourne

The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is the coolest museum in Melbourne. Probably the best coolest museum in Australia… For film, video games and digital culture geeks. That's me. This combined with the fact that the Wallace & Gromit and Friends: The Magic of Aardman exhibition was on, it was impossible to walk by ACMI without going inside.

This is why we're a different kind of travel blog!

Travel.Geek.NZ is a travel blog that does more than just blogging about travel. Yes, of course, we love to visit amazing destinations worldwide but it's not just seeing it's also experiencing. For us, it's all about living like a local and really tasting the city or country. Meeting new people and learning from their customs and travel tips.

Plus, we combine travelling with the other things we are passionate about:

  • Tasting great craft beer - visiting craft beer breweries, talking to the geniuses behind the amazing brews and spending time at taprooms worldwide to tast amazing craft beer.
  • Eating local food - tasting the local cuisine (vegetarian & vegan as well) is what we love to do when we are overseas. Our bloggers are real foodies, down to earth and only focussed on flavour.
  • Using and testing gadgets - Gadgets will make your travels more fun or easier. We'll blog about gadget news and the items we have tested ourselves. All blog posts come from our experience.
  • Experiencing music - Visiting record stores, going to see (local or international) bands play live, it's all part of our travelling days.
  • Sleeping in amazing accommodations - There are lots of places where you can spend the night. We like our accommodation to be a bit different than a regular hostel or hotel. All our accommodation reviews and tips are listed here.

And much more, there's so much more to do and see so not all blog posts fit the items listed above. Have a great time travelling. Travel.Geek.NZ will be your inspiration when planning your trip. The rest is up to you. Have fun.
