Beach Vibes ____________________________________________ I do love mountains but I might ❤️ beaches a wee bit more 😊🏝perfectly golden beaches with clear turquoise water and a million dollar view here at Kaiteriteri Beach just south of the Abel Tasman!
27km of Abel Tasman ____________________________________________ We are not gonna lie but we are quite tired after our day hike in the Abel Tasman National Park. We embarked the water taxi at Bark Bay around 10:30 and reached the car in Marahau around 17:00. A beautiful walk along many bays, golden beaches and lush forest.
Circuit with a view ____________________________________________ On our way from the west coast to Nelson we stopped at Nelson Lakes National Park and did the Mt. Robert Circuit which provides fantastic views over Lake Rotoiti. Unfortunately, the ridge was still covered in snow and we couldn’t do the 2-day tramp to Angelus Hut though.
Beaches and Dunes ____________________________________________ The 12km loop pit to Farewell Spit from the Inner to the Outer Beach was well worth it! Can’t recommend it enough! And today was my first day in a top in NZ 😊#happyspring
To new beginnings ____________________________________________ Nature is beautiful! We love to explore and discover new surroundings every day 💚
Natural wonder ____________________________________________ Scientists still Wonder how these pancake rocks formed. What a fascinating site and some impressive steam and blow holes!

I did it! ____________________________________________ I finally ticked a longtime bucket list item off my list! Jumped by out of “Jessica” in 13,000ft was not the easiest thing to do but really you don’t have a choice as soon as you board the little plane. It was so exhilarating and absolutely amazing! It’s kinda addicting and the crew is really fantastic! Glaciers, snow, rainforest, valley, beach, and ocean views! I think I am still high 🤣
Mountain reflections ____________________________________________ The clouds finally cleared a bit and Mt. Tasman was able to show off! Mt. Cook is still covered and we hope the sky clears a bit more for this afternoon’s adventure!
Pure NZ ____________________________________________ The Blue Pools look surreal but these shades of blue are reality and you can see all the way to the bottom. It’s only a short walk from the parking lot and can’t be missed!
West coast, best coast ____________________________________________ The west coast greeted us with the typical misty weather but the beaches never get old.
Climate change ____________________________________________ It is almost frightening how fast the glaciers around the world recede and disappear 😞 the difference in only 6 years is incredibly sad! Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier are among the few in the world which are surrounded by rain forests. Be quick to catch a glimpse of these once majestic glaciers!
Rain forest and beaches ___________________________________________ Only about 150km away from Wanaka and you will find a completely different scenery. We stopped at the amazing blue pools and the Haast pass lookout before hitting up north at the west coast where the rain forest meets white sandy beaches 💚💚💚
Spring is coming ____________________________________________ When you can finally rest your feet from being trapped in ski boots for 10h a day! The flowers start blooming and it’s hoodie weather! 🌸
Lake views ____________________________________________ The other day when hiking to the top of Isthmus Peak I enjoyed this breathtaking view of Lake Wanaka. Do more of what makes you happy #outdoorlove
Beautiful but windy day ____________________________________________ I am getting so much skiing time this year! Due to the delays we are getting more fun time before packing up 😊 an exciting parallel slalom is going down though!
Beautiful Wanaka ____________________________________________ We really fell in ❤️ with Wanaka! This cute town with its little cafes is also very popular among the kiwis and the lakefront is gorgeous!
