New Zealand – the land of beauty and people who say “wee” a lot

Just spent 2 weeks in New Zealand, we only did the south of the south island as we have been to NZ twice before. We did a loop from Christchurch, Dunedin, Invercargill, Queenstown, Wanaka back to Christchurch. The highlight for me was the driving between Queenstown back to Christchurch through the mountains. You can really see why lords of the rings was shot there, the scenery is just magnificient.

Things I most liked about NZ:

  • Scenery
  • Good pubs
  • Abundance of Black pudding
  • People say “wee” instead of little/small (well at least south of Dunedin)
Here are few shots of the adventure:

why you don't ride your bike on the tram lines in christchurch

a very friendly seal at penguin place near dunedin

the view back to Queenstown from coronet peak skiing area
The beast itself..

Oh and the camera was excellent. I only managed to fill 1.5 GB of the 4GB card , but that stilll gave me about 45 minutes of movie and lots of photos. So $300 well spent.
