Mount Aspiring National Park is home to some of the country’s most spectacular scenery.

“I said, ‘but I have to go, there are so many places calling my name.’” 🐚 I really wanted to go to Cathedral Cove at sunrise. However, the night before, we got locked out of our car due to a fault with the lock (I will tell the full story one day 🤦🏻‍♀️) so we almost moved on the next day. Things don’t always go to plan when you’re travelling, and let me tell you, that night was certainly not glamorous 😂 But can you imagine if I had let it ruin the rest of our time in the Coromandel? I would have missed out on this! 😍 Life on the road doesn’t always go to plan - but that’s part of the adventure 🌎 . . . . . #northislandnz #gottalovenz #newzelandpics #newzealandgram #newzealandtravel #newzealandroadtrip #newzealandwithme #cathedralcove #cathedralcovebeach #aotearoa #travelnewzealand #purenewzealand #newzealandtrip #newzealandguide #narnia #explorenz #nztourism #ig_newzealand #travelnewzealand #visitnewzealand #thisisnz #coromandel #coromandalpeninsula #purenz #northislandnz #gonz #workingholiday #gltlove #teamkaptainkenny #sheisnotlost

Meant to be ✨ So, yesterday night while I was flying back to NZ I watched the epic movie Bohemian Rhapsody, which BTW I strongly recommend!! Anyway, when Freddie Mercury joined the band and things started to work out for them, he said to Mary “I am the person that I was always meant to be”. And of course I can see it, he was meant to be one of the best performers in the history! He was totally born for it and he knew it, his heart always knew it. He also knew he was different and instead of trying to be like everyone else, he believed in himself, his love for music and his creative ideas and eventually, he fulfilled his potential. He, like an isolated tree that decides to grow in the water and be the most visited tree of the entire country, decides to be what he was always meant to be leaving an enormous legacy to all of us who enjoy music. Do you feel different? Be like Freddie, be like the tree in the water and become the person you are meant to be, don’t fear and believe in you ✨ PS: Queen is definitely one of the best bands in the history of music! 🤘🏻🎼 #wanaka #hiking👣 #wonderful_earthpix #landscapeshot #naturephotography #wonderoftheworld #wanakatree #newzealand #nztrip #nz🇳🇿 #nzmustdo #nzsouthisland #mustdonz #nztourism #travelnz #thisisnz #capturenz #ignz #roadtripnz #gottalovenz #newzealandfinds #newzealandguide #newzealandpics #newzealandnatural #newzealandgram #newzealandtravel #newzealandvacations #newzealand🇳🇿

Mother Nature ✨ Mother Nature provides everything we need to survive, to live, to thrive. Like a mother taking care of her children she teaches us lessons that are all over the place: That life is about cycles, that there are good and bad days/moments, that storms and rain are fundamental to keep balance and to keep herself alive. She so kindly, takes care of all of us, from the giant mountains to the tinny humans and ants✨💕 . #wanaka #otago #newzealandlife #newzealandfinds #newzealand #newzealandguide #newzealandpics #newzealandnatural #newzealandgram #newzealandtravel #newzealandvacations #nz🇳🇿 #nztravel #nz #nzmustdo #mustdonz #nztourism #travelnz #thisisnz #capturenz #nztrip #purenz #travelphotography #naturephotography #landscapeshot #travelphotography #travelpassport #wonderoftheworld #wonderful_earthpix

Have you met the almighty Pipi? A shallow sand-burrowing shellfish that loves to hangout in silty sandbars, estuaries and sandy river mouths where fresh and salt water meet. Endemic to New Zealand, they are best eaten raw, steamed, barbequed or as fan-favourite – pipi fritters. Harvested year-round, their acquisition demands an unmistakable sand shuffle, involving dainty hip twist and sand-sifting handfuls, with a limited reward of just 150 per person. Distinct to their tuatua and toheroa cousins, their bivalve, oval-shaped shell hinges centrally, encasing a delicate creamy meat, that imparts both sweet and salt in equal measures. A hot tip is to soak them in seawater for up to 24 hours to reduce any grittiness. Time to share your prized pipi memories people…

West is Best! View across Woodpecker Bay from an overlook at Kaipakati Point and Seal Island off SH6, on the way from Cape Foulwind to Punakaiki. This little promontory is between the west coast settlements at Tiromoana and Pahautane, lonely places but for the hundreds of cars and trucks enjoying one of the South Island’s most scenic stretches of coastal roadways! It’s also a great spot for a cup of tea before arriving at the Pancake Rocks!

Life is like a river it will forever continue to flow, we may have some dry times but over the period of this life we will change shape, change course, evolve with everything that flows through us and what rocks we choose to surround ourselves with. The definition of life to me is to just go with the flow see where you will end up. . This was taken a few years ago I never really liked this image because I was disappointed I didn't capture the braided river beds, it doesn't help when you walk up this spur in a time there wasn't much rain 🌂 next time I know when to go, when it's going to flood. . Hope everyone week starting well and your rivers are full of exciting events yet to unfold.

Bellbirds are both gorgeous and interesting to watch. One thing they apparently don't like doing is standing still... so capturing a decent image of this little fellow proved to be fairly challenging. Thank you, burst mode !! . Happy 2020 everybody . . . #bellbird #westcoastnz #wildlife

Heading beyond the bush-line? What do you need to know, and practice, to travel competently and with style? . In mountaineering parlance, the ‘death zone’ refers to the altitude zone above 8000 metres, where the margin of error between life and death rests on a knife edge. In Aotearoa New Zealand, we have our own death zone at a much more modest altitude, but equally as treacherous – the subalpine zone – that occurs between about 1200 and 1500 metres, depending on the latitude. This semi-vegetated zone exists in a band above the bushline, but below the permanent snowline, and is variously referred to as the transalpine, subalpine, snowgrass or alpine zone, monkey-scrub belt, leatherwood leisure park, or carpet grass alley. . A significant number of backcountry accidents, fatalities and injuries occur in this subalpine environment, and many of them are preventable. Backcountry Accidents has formed a technical sub-group to suggest strategies for moving through this zone safely. Collectively, this group has spent thousands of days travelling in the subalpine zone, through the most rugged and remote parts of the country. This hard-earned knowledge is offered on our Wilderlife blog in good faith, and in the hope that it may help avoid future accidents. . Check out wilderlife.nz/2017/03/safe-travelling-in-the-sub-alpine-zone/ (link also in bio). . #mountaineering #transalpine #nz #southernalps #makeithomenz #federatedmountainclubs #fmcnz #newzealand #newzealandnatural #thisisnz #purenz #realnz #aotearoa #wilderlife # .

#JDog and #SkyWalker enjoying the view @StickyForest #WanakaNz This ride was bitter sweet for me. It was the first time that I'd taken #JDog out on a serious single track ride since July 2019. #Skywalker was a welcome addition to the team. Both of them rode incredibly well and were happy to wait for me as I dogged it up the hills. I on the other hand was: 1. Grateful to just be out there 2. Struggling with my loss of fitness and that my wrist is still not 💯 after breaking it last July. #babysteps #1rideAtATime #GetOutThere #lovewanaka #purenz #purenewzealand #mtb #mountainbike #mountainbiking #bikeNz #lifebehindbars #centralotago #thisisnz #destinationNZ

Local farmer and clever inventor Richard Pearse (aka Bamboo Dick) flew before the Wright brothers in 1902.  That's our story and we're sticking to it.  We have a memorial to prove it on Main Waitohi Road. Our Timaru District Airport also bears his name. ​ ​*disclaimer - there is some debate around the above facts but he did fly a bamboo plane around that time and was responsible for lots of other cool inventions.  A man ahead of his time. ​ ​#welovetimaru #richardpearse #bamboodick

The Coromandel Peninsula was full of beautiful beaches, overview spots and as the temperatures got a little warmer again it all became even more enjoyable. Of course we went to the Cathedral Cove - though the hike there had a lot of ups and downs and this spot felt a lot more touristy (since when do people take drones with them everywhere?) than most of the other places we have been it still was easy for me to find a quiet corner and enjoy this beautiful place on earth. #throwback #nikond3300 #travel #newzealand #neuseeland #coromandel #coromandelpeninsula #cathedralcove #beach #strand #ocean #meer #bluesky #sand #landscapephotography #pictureoftheday #picoftheday #landscape #beautifulplaces #travelgram #scenery #adventure #lightroom #latergram #roadtrip #thisisnz #nikon #nofilter

It was another sunny day here in Queenstown. A short drive away is the stunningly beautiful, peaceful, Bobs Cove.
