We've been back from New Zealand for a week now, & my lack of posting has been due to recovering physically as well as catching up on things at home. I've got to say we had a wonderful trip, I think we enjoyed it as much as we ever have. It feels like we leave our hearts there on the South Island when we return home. I am not one of those people who feels any relief at the idea of heading home, so it's a bit of a downer being back to ordinary life. We had incredible weather, some wonderful catch ups with blogging friends, and time with family. And the vintage didn't disappoint. I guess photos will describe it better then I can so here we go.....
Yep that's how I travel thanks to my misbehaving immune system.
Flying over Queenstown
Our delightful villa in Dunedin
Op shops and Modaks
Squee to seeing the Squirrels shop as well as dear blogging friends
I sniffed out as many vintage shops as I could
We had all kinds of weather, but mostly mild and sunny
We spent a night in a church
Stuffed ourselves silly with Jimmy's pies
Took in the scenery in Queenstown
I got reacquainted with the local birds
We drove across the highest main road in New Zealand
Saw the majestic Mount Cook
We had a ball sharing our time away with my parents
Some fog and some history
We spent a while at "that" shop at Mayfield
Found more vintage treasures in Christchurch
Met the lambs up Auckland way
Stood next to my favourite beverage
Saw some country and some city and spent time with our sweet nephew and niece
And returned home exhausted but happy
I'll have more NZ posts to follow. You'll be so sick of it by the time I finish!
