I also had a camera with a black & white film with me in New Zealand, I have to admit it takes me so long to fill a black & white film these days and it always surprises me when I develop a role to see the first and the last photo and to realize that months are separating them. Well, here are a few shots I took in New Zealand in June. More B&W photos to come .....
Music I am enjoying lately....
Bon Iver's - Heavenly Father
Bahamas - Stronger Than That
Devonte Hynes (aka Blood Orange) - Paolo Alto
Flume's Arcade Fire mix of Afterlife

Those of you who follow me on Instagram might have already read & seen about our new project. Will and I have been cooking something up (excuse the pun) and sat down together to start a little food blog. We still have to get into the routine of updating it regularly but we are working on it.
We both love food & cooking and as we mostly find the time on the weekends to try out a new recipes or make and old time favourite we called the blog 'Mostly Saturdays'.
It is a place where we want to share our favourite recipes, some of the many cookbooks we collected over the years, some we grew up with and some we just came up on our own.
Have a look & we hope you enjoy it.

A few more photos from our last day in Wellington and our way back to Sydney. I hope we will be back in Summer, its just such a magical place. I hope you enjoyed the little trip to New Zealand through my photos. :)

When you walk through some of the streets in Wellington you can smell the amazing smell of roasted coffee beans. There are so many wonderful cafes in this city and we were lucky to try a few while we were there last month. The photos are taken at Customs Brew Bar with the most friendly staff! :)

When I looked at the photos from our time in Wellington I can feel again what a great time we had and how much we liked this city. During our two trips to New Zealand one thing which stood out for me apart from the beauty of the country is how friendly everyone is. People smile at you on the street, are super friendly and happy to answer questions, tell you what their favourite place is to go and I think they know that they live in one of the most beautiful countries.
The sun came out again for the last 2,5 days of our trip and so we were out and about all days walking through neighbourhood, eating good food (highly recommend Loretta's, drinking good, really good coffee in many of their great coffee spots, getting craft brew beer at the garage project and went up to Mt Victoria to watch the sun set. One day we drove a little out of the city to do the Eastern Walkway, we stopped every few metres to enjoy the view. It was incredible to think that this was still part of the city and that people have their house right here within that amazing landscape. When we looked out to the water I remember saying that it feels like the end of the world here, right there where we stood.
PS: Can you spot the two people in the last photo, they were walking with their dog down there.

A few photos I took on our way between Auckland and Wellington. As it was (is) Winter in New Zealand we also had a few rainy days but we didn't mind and enjoyed the beautiful landscape nevertheless the grey sky and green landscape made it look so mystic like in a fairy tale....
