Rob has always said to me that New Zealand is the most beautiful place on earth and I would fall in love with it in an instant. Looking back at my photos and reminiscing about that first sunrise we saw and the sight of those endless white beaches, I have to say that I completely agree with him. Our stay was but a whistle-stop tour of the South Island, starting our journey at Chirstchurch, travelling east along the winding coastal roads cutting through the snow-topped mountains and visiting Kaikoura, Blenheim, Nelson and Kaiteriteri en route. We then headed south down to Franz Josef for an incredible helicopter flight over the glaciers before ending up in Queenstown which was one of my favourite places of the whole trip. With only ten days and a whole island to navigate round, it is fair to say that we did a fair bit of driving but funnily enough, some of my most treasured memories are travelling on from place to place, windows down and singing Fleetwood Mac at the top of our voices!

It is hard to say what makes New Zealand such a special country to visit. I don’t know if it was the deserted beaches or the coiling mountain roads that take you for miles through the most breathtaking scenery. Maybe it was untouched countryside, the friendliness of every person we met, or just the fact that I got to hang with my favourite animals, some delightful alpacas. Whatever it was, I have been totally captivated by the place and know that we shall both be returning soon.

    Those photos are breathtaking. I can see why you've fallen in love with NZ. I would love to visit the country in the future…right along with Australia (since they're relatively close to each other).

    You captured New Zealand beautifully. I used to live in Wellington and I was just amazed how amazing the scenery is. I used to drive to work everyday past a waterfall! The people are so friendly and its just a relaxing environment, I miss it x

    I had never thought about traveling to New Zealand but my boyfriend and I moved there for a year and lived in Christchurch, and it was the best year of our lives! It's the most beautiful place I've ever been and the people are amazing. I'm so glad you got the chance to go even for a short time!

    Gorgeous photos! I love the South Island of NZ (my parents live down there) but I've lived in Wellington all my life – I hope next time you visit you do the North Island! I'm always so proud when visitors love our little country. I'm a relatively new reader of your blog and I'm really enjoying it πŸ™‚ x

    Queenstown is the most beautiful place on the planet. You seem to have done pretty similar bits to me ( although we spent a while in Christchurch and it was before the quakes so the city was vibrant and beautiful instead of ruins). Youve left me longing to return! xx

  33. 19th April 2013 / 1:43 am

    Oh my gosh! It looks amazing!! I really wanna got there too!!
