And you drive, drive, drive along the endless seeming roads in New Zealand and you don't seem to get tired of the wonderful views which you can expect after every corner.
New Zealand I hope I will be back in 2014.

Our first stop after a day in Christchurch was lake Tekapo. A wonderful glacier lake. When the sun is hitting its surface you can get lost by staring at its light blue colour and the mountains and sky which are perfectly mirrored on the exterior of the lake.
We got there in the early evening and went for a little stroll around the lake. The sun was going down and with its last shadows on the mountains nearby the light blue colour of the lake slowly got darker.
My next post will be my last post from our trip to New Zealand...
Have a great weekend and wonderful 2nd advent on Sunday.

I can't believe it is already December. I am so excited to going home for Christmas in a few weeks time and to see my dear family and friends again. It's been 1,5 years since I was last home. Time is flying.
I updated my Schorlemaedchen print shop with a few more prints. Have a look if you like ...

These photos are from an afternoon at a lake in New Zealand. It was a rainy day in Queenstown and we decided to drive a bit around with our camper van along the endless streets within the beautiful landscape I have already shown you in my last posts and at some point we came to this lake. We left the van and there was no one there, just us and a man fishing. We were standing there and Will started skipping stones into the water which created many little circles. And I was just quiet standing there thinking how lucky I am to being able to visit such wonderful places and to create such memories.

A few photos from our day trip to Milford Sound on the South Island of New Zealand. It is a six hours drive from Queenstown and the way to the Fjordlands is so stunning. I think we stopped every 5km to just get out of the camper van, breathe the fresh air and to be blown away by the beauty of the landscape.

We spent one foggy day and a cold night at the highest Mountain in New Zealand - Mt Cook.
The air was so crisp and I liked seeing the mountain coated in fog and the colour schemes of grey, green and brown. Such a magical place!

On on of our days in Queenstown we went for another beautiful hike (Ben Lommond Summit).
We were climbing up the hills for a few hours, got rid of layers of close with every hour, mountain goats crossed our way and we adored the colours of the grass and bushes and the views which were simply breathtakingly beautiful.
I love the satisfaying feeling of a nice long hike and it reminded me to the time when I went to summer camps close to the alps and we'd go for long walks and hikes back then as well.
Happy weekend everyone!
