Visited New Zealand for the first time recently and felt so overwhelmed by her beauty that I just didn’t know how to start blogging about the trip. Been planning to visit this paradise I’ve heard so much about for more than a decade, but somehow it never materialized due to time or cost. Feel incredibly lucky to finally come here in my mid life.
Sharing some photos of South Island that took my breath away. The reality is even more beautiful than the photos can depict. The people were so lovely too just like the kiwi bloggers in Singapore. They made me feel so at home. It’s one place where I felt almost like a local because shop owners assumed I lived there.
I now get why everyone I know who’s been there say its just so beautiful and that people are the nicest ever.
New Zealand remains in my dreams and perhaps next time I’ll get to experience the beauty of North Island’s beaches.
WOW, it’s amazing, even when it’s unfiltered! 🙂
It felt like nature was even closer in NZ than it is in Australia (which is also postcard perfect). I loved the feeling of space here. Miss it so much. oh Yes and air that has a sweet smell I feel eager to take a deep breath.
Ahhh that’s what they always say, NZ is the other side of the world, so isolated, so close to nature and bewildering. Doubt Oz can compare in any manner 🙂 Would love to have the chance in the future to experience the same as you did. haha
Australia has its own charm too 🙂
It’s great that you enjoyed your trip to New Zealand so much. The pictures are very beautiful. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Thanks Aunty Uta. Germany is another country on my wish list that I’m hoping I get to visit one day 🙂 Meanwhile I’ll enjoy reading more about your country at your blog.
Thanks for this, Bookjunkie. 🙂
Actually I live near Sydney. But we’ve been visiting Germany towards the end of last year and also three years ago.
Like to read about your childhood in Germany and current life in Australia 🙂
I like this, Bookjunkie. Thanks! 🙂
Do share more details! Your pictures are amazing! And your writing, as always, so simple and a joy to read!
That’s the sweetest thing anyone’s said to me this week. Thank you.
your photos are so beautiful! makes me so want to go there too, but i don’t and can’t drive so it makes travelling in NZ difficult.. :/
thanks for sharing!
I’m lucky my partner drove me around. But the other option we were looking at were the coach buses. But haven’t done a tour in a long time and don’t know I would like the scheduling as they leave super early usually at 7.30 am in the morning.
I am visiting NZ this December, can’t wait! =)
awesome…you’ll love it but bring your sunglasses as the glare of the sun is very brilliant.
Just came back from NZ recently and it was really awesome! Still thinking of the L&P soft drink and all the penguins/seals/sealions/whales I managed to see during my trip! =)
I missed out on the wild life but NZ is one place I would love to make many more trips to.
If you do visit NZ again, be sure to check out The Catlins region. It’s still quite off the beaten track with its own brand of charming attractions.
I can’t wait to 🙂 thanks for the tip Jo
Is this on the way to mt cook? I was there last sep. gorgeous place!
Oh yes 🙂 I am still missing the picture perfect atmosphere there..so surreal to me.
