I have a friend that is in NZ right now (her sister married a person from NZ, so she often visits there) and a friend who went there last year. I know the friend who went last year visited the spot where Lord of the Rings was filmed, so she might have gone to this place. I just know that it is a deeply beautiful place.
Fabulous photos! Since I've been blogging, I've seen lovely photos and read wonderful books set in both New Zealand and Australia...so my Bucket List includes seeing those places IRL. But...one problem. My fear of flying long distances.
Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.
What a contrast. The mountains look so dramatic, yet in the valleys it looks so fresh and lush. You can taste the clean air.
Gorgeous pictures - such a beautiful place! A young friend of ours in grad school just had a grant that included a trip to NZ, and her #1 priority was to see where Lord of the Rings was filmed!
Thanks for sharing -
Book By Book
NZ is such a beautiful country, I do hope to return one day.
Were you there during the last earthquake? I believe they're still feeling tremors regularly - it must be quite frightening.
Deb and Sue- LOTR was filmed in quite a few locations around NZ, over both islands. Deb it is indeed a deeply beautiful country.
Laurel- I hope you get over that phobia one day. Long haul travel is just much, much more boring than short flights, that's it.
Ginx - it was lovely, almost like being in Switzerland.
Brona- I was there not long after the most recent Christchurch/Kaikoura earthquake. Weirdly Queenstown is seldom affected by earthquakes, I mean obviously there's been a few there in the past....
New Zealand is so far from where I live that I've only been there once, and indeed it's a beautiful place as your lovely photos illustrate. I also visited some LoTR locales, and I think the dreamy landscapes were all perfect for the mood of the films.
