is this how you imagine New Zealand?
You will not believe when looking at the photos but 80% of time i've spent in New Zealand: the weather has been rubbish. What this means for a traveller like me: due to the pouring rain, hail, snowfall, strong wind, rough sea/lake, thick mist, avalanche, earthquake, etc, i have not been able to do many activities that i was hoping to do!!!! (apparently this year's spring is more wintry than normally, 4 seasons in one day - those from England will know what i'm taking about)
well, next time i will know not to come to New Zealand in spring, autumn or winter. My advice: go there in full summer! (unless you want to ski)
On the other hand, my socialising here has been very successful (there has to be a balance). i've met some great people that have made my trip a truly enjoyable and brilliant experience.
NZ is abundantly green, i haven't seen that much greenery and lushness (and so many sheep) in my life before. it does look beautiful.
Enjoy the pics, the first 9 photos are from the north island and the rest from the south.
There will be more....
