I have been a bit quiet on Instagram this past year, so I'm trying to get back in the habit. This is what I have been up to lately: makin' maps, frolicking on the Te Ara I Whiti (Lightpath), taking in the view at the top Mt Victoria, looking for fairies at the bottom of these Falls, printing scarves and trying to ignore the cold weather in the Wintergardens.
The adventure continues! I knew before I visited New Zealand's south island that it would be beautiful. What I didn't know was just how diverse the lanscape would be. Into the lush rainforest that I posted images of last week, advances Fox Glacier. The glacier is one of the most accessible in the world, with walking tracks leading up to the glacier terminus. However, feeling a bit more adventurous, a helicopter flight and glacier hike was decided upon. The weather had been a bit unpredictable during the first few days of the trip and we weren't sure if our heli-hike would go ahead but luckily for the mister and I the sun came out and along with our guide, we ended up being the only people on the glacier! Amazing! This was one of the highlights of the entire holiday.
I still have a few more photos from New Zealand to share with you but they may have to wait until after Christmas, I have some baking to do! So until then, have a happy Sunday and enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
Blogland is awash with Christmas posts at the moment and while my Christmas holidays have begun, I thought I would share something less festive with you all. With study over for the year, I have finally had time to sort through the photos I took back in September, on a trip to New Zealand. Feeling tired and wondering how we were going to make it to the end of a challenging year, the mister and I impulsively decided to fly to the land of the long white cloud for a bit rest, rejuvenation and inspiration. We hired a car and toured around the South Island, taking in as many of the amazing sights as time and the weather would permit. There was so much to see in this beautiful country that I am sure we will be back in the future. For now I shall content myself with the memories that these images evoke.
