The Hobbit’s New Zealand

This is just a brief post and not of my making – just my sharing. One of my most loyal readers shared the following video link with me (see below).

After being in New Zealand for nearly a year, I believe that the images that you’ll see in this video are all real and not imaginary. OK, the folks who created The Hobbit series movies have added a fair amount of surrealism to particular scenes in their movies. However, the underlying scenery is as real as it gets – breathtaking, stunning, beautiful.

 

And, Earnslaw Burn is one of the few places that we’ve wanted to see in New Zealand where we just won’t make it – this trip!

Enjoy.

Milford from the air

If you’ll recall our sagas here in New Zealand, you’ll recall that we were stranded in Milford Sound for a few days – that blog piece is here.

 

 

You might also recall that Asta needed to fly out of Milford Sound so that she could return to work, whilst Aras, Julija and I stayed around Milford Sound and got to know it better than we had ever expected.

 

On Asta’s flight out of Milford Sound, she managed to take some nice photos from the air that will provide you with a different perspective on New Zealand’s Southern Alps.  They’re even more spectacular from the air!!!

 

Enjoy!
