Hello...from beautiful New Zealand!

Hello, everyone! So the three of us, Sam (my husband), Sonny (our friend) and me, made it to New Zealand! After having traveled from the North Island to the South Island, we made our way to Queenstown, otherwise known as the Adventure Capital of the World. And rightly so! As you can see from the first picture, we took advantage of the spectacular views by going on a helicopter ride today.

From the hustle and bustle of large cities like Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch to the more scenic cities like Queenstown and Rotorua, New Zealand truly has it all. Highlights have got to be intertubing in a glow worm cave in Rotorua (cold and wet but well worth it) and riding in a helicopter today.

I can't tell you how beautiful and inspiring this place is.

We'll be headed to Milford Sound tomorrow, which promises dramatic views of cliffs, waterfalls and glacier water. Then, we'll be fishing and then riding the Shotover Jet the day after. Can't wait to share those pics with you all soon.

For now - here are a few from the past week.

On our drive - where does the sky end and the water begin?

We jumped for thermal pools in Rotorua

Till then. Take care! Hope all is well in Cali!

The Sky/Water and Queenstown photos are a-ma-zing! I can almost hear the Shire's sweeping theme song playing ...
