New Zealand Love

This post was last updated on September 24th, 2014

In the aftermath of the New Zealand earthquake and the effects it has had on the county’s tourism, travel bloggers have united to post articles about this beautiful country. It is an effort to show that New Zealand is a beautiful place to visit, and now is a great time! It has taken over twitter with the trend #Blog4NZ, and there is a great article detailing the movement at 100% Pure New Zealand

My road trip across New Zealand was one of the most life changing trips I have ever taken, so I decided to join in the movement and show support for these gorgeous islands.  I already blogged about the trip once in a post entitled The Best Way to See New Zealand, but below are a few of my favorite snapshots from the trip.  I hope they inspire you to visit one day!

So there you have it. New Zealand at its finest. But don’t take my word for it, go ahead and see for yourself. This country was formed for the enjoyment of your eyeballs. The entire island is never ending dramatic seascapes rolling into green and golden hills dwarfed by towering mountains. Grab your cape and walking stick for a Lord of the Rings tour or cater your own trip but however you do it you won’t regret it. If you’ve ever been leave us a comment and let us know how it went! We’d love to hear your story too.


  1. Thanks for sharing your NZ holiday shots. Amazing!

    • Thanks for stopping by John! Glad you liked the shots!

  2. Being a part of this amazing adventure I can firmly stand behind Dan’s statement in saying that visiting New Zealand is indeed a life changing experience. No where else have I seen a landscape go from escarpments overlooking the ocean, to rolling fields of the greenest shade, to vertical mountains capped with glaciers. It is the best the world has to offer wrapped in the beautiful islands that are New Zealand. A trip everyone should make in their lifetime.

    • Thanks for the comment Doug, I couldn’t have said it better myself! Livin’ the dream
