New Zealand part one…


I can now say I have been overseas, and what a better place to start than New Zealand.

I am here for a wedding and touring the South Island with my cousin Brittany. It is very beautiful!

When we first arrived we didn’t think it was as cold as we had been warned? But soon realised it was bitterly cold, as you would expect at 1:30am!

Our first stop was Christchurch and our first impression was this town is dead! and why are the side walks so uneven! Then we remembered they have just had an earthquake, so the town is excused. From there we visited the cute town of Ohau and onto Milford sound. Which was stunning BUT after being bus sick, going onto a boat wasn’t ideal.

I loved Queenstown, such beautiful countryside. No I didn’t go bungy jumping or anything like that. I considered it but after watching some silly people jump off a bridge, I realised I just wasn’t that silly!! So Britt and I opted for more scenic, safe things to occupy our time and spent a day on the slopes of NEW ZEALAND! Which weren’t as fluffy and snow covered as I would like to pretend. Also visited the countryside where Lord of the Rings was filmed, if that interests anyone!

More of our trip to come, and my first over seas wedding once I have shot that!…:)

    They’re really amazing I’m so jealous you were able to capture the beauty of the lake through the church window. I also love that one of the lake with the rusting stuff in the foreground such a beautiful contrast. Its just amazing to see how different people view their surroundings through their cameras.
