Crisp sunny mornings
A beautiful country and a great adventure. Sounds like some great views and great hiking. Love the glacier.

Foreboding weather, abundant wildlife and a few hair pen curves
Glad you had a nice house to stay in for home exchange. What a great way to see the world. NZ is beauty round every corner. Glad you enjoyed the sounds again. Sounds lovely. I was in Queenstown the first time in 1989 and it was a village of about four streets. Times certainly have changed. I was shocked when I was there in 2008. Life moves on.

Ophir

Looks interesting
That looks like an interesting place. I think I would I enjoy going there. The penguins come in at night, right? That's why you weren't allowed to take photos, correct? /Ake

Penguins
Yes they come back from feeding at sea after sunset . No photos And we had to be silent as they don’t want anything to disturb the penguins . There was lighting so you could see them but it doesn’t disturb them.

Landed.

Landed
No trip in the South Island is complete without a helicopter ride within touching distance of the peak of Mt Cook and landing on soft snow on a glacier. Well done! I think we landed on Tasman Glacier when we did it.

Highlights in NZ
There have been so many highlights but this has to have been one of the tops. It’s surreal to be up there in the snow .

No matter which direction you look in NZ...the views are stunning...this is just one of them.

A windy evening on Lake Wanaka

Wanaka
Even in poor weather it looks beautiful here. I am hoping the issue with no emails going out to subscribers has been resolved as I am about to do another blog.

Lake Ianthe

Awesome
Out of many good pictures this was outstanding. Sounds like you had a good time. I had a colleague last year who was born in NZ. He always kept talking about the mountains and the nature. He always kept telling me how beautiful it is. /Ake

Lake Ianthe

Stunning NZ
Hey Ake Thanks ...it’s so hard to choose the photos as I have so many ...and the views are unbelievably beautiful . We’ve been lucky to have some sunny blue skies as the weather altogether has been quite unpredictable .

New Zealand is a place we want to go to
We want to visit New Zealand so bad. We have been thinking about for many years but during the New Zealand summer we have too little time off from our jobs so we can't make a trip for as long as we would like to. One day we'll make it though. /Ake

Wonderful NZ
Wonder yes it’s a wonderful place and so varied . I’m lucky to be here for my third time ... but I was a late starter on this long haul,travel so it wasn’t until I was in my sixties that I had my first trip here . And I think you are a lot younger than me so you’ve got plenty time to plan your future trip !

Earthquakes in NZ
Interesting to read of your return to Christchurch and reliving memories of the earthquake that took place on 21 February 2011 while you were there. I too am saddened from your blog that the Cathedral has not been rebuilt. We heard of an earthquake in Auckland recently but have not heard further so presume any damage was not significant. Like other paradises, New Zealand also has its dangers. Glad you are enjoying the wonderful hospitality of the Kiwis, Lynne.

A special platinum tour!
Not everyone is fortunate enough to be offered a platinum tour or... be able to handle one of these wonderful tours.So happy you were able to meet Dave and Denise. Wendy's bay sounds like a great place for a photo shoot. Glad you are getting in all of your steps. Such a great city.
1st November 2018

Photoshoot
I wil have to wait for Dave to see what he does with the photos ! Was so lovely to spend the day with them after all the years of corresponding and reading blogs in cyberspace.

That's wonderful that you were able to take...
the Platinum tour with Dancing Dave and Denise. Linda and I enjoyed a similar tour with them in Sep 2012!

The Platinum Tour
What a wonderful day we had together Lynne. Certainly makes it worthwhile to take a day off work, see storm cloud skies clear for such a delightful Sydney Spring day. Thank you for contacting me so Denise and I could spend such a memorable day with you...wandering areas that you can only enjoy on a Special Platinum Tour...not for everyone...just for you. Another reminder how special the Travelblog community is...meeting new friends and creating memories and sights that endure. Enjoy the rest of your trip. New Zealand is a South Sea gem.

Tassie
We loved our time there and hope to go back some day. The views are amazing. You managed to see a lot in your time there. The people are so friendly.

Two months travel
It’s interesting when travelling over a long period , at each place you begin anew and so the time I’ve been away seems to slip by with the new experiences. Had a great day out with Dave and Denise this week.
