New Voyages is a travel blog devoted to showing you all the places that are rarely featured in travel magazines or on blogs. I love exploring the off the beaten path, exotic, adventurous or seemingly unheard of destinations that travellers rarely see.

Join me on a journey through some of the world’s most fascinating places!


Jono Helicopter


My name is Jono and I’m a travel enthusiast from New Zealand. I’m a mechanic by day, travel writer by night and helicopter pilot at weekends. I’ve been to over 50 countries and my goal is to get as far off the beaten track as I can! I prefer doing epic trips every year or two rather than taking short holidays as I love to travel overland and get deep into the culture. My travel plans for 2014 include exploring the islands of the South Pacific throughout the year when I can. Towards the end of the year I’m hoping to get to Africa again and explore the Western nations of Africa such as Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
