Every time I decide not to grab my camera for my walk to work I get caught out and have to use my crap phone camera to try to do some bit of justice to an incredible sunrise—that’ll teach me! 🙈 • • • #newzealand #wellington #wellingtonnz #destinationnz #nzmustdo #sunrise #sunriseporn #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #nature #instanature #sharemewlg #wellingtonlive #sharemenz #morningwalk #morningsun #travelnewzealand #girlslovetravel #gltlove #newzealandguide #newzealandfinds #purenewzealand #earthpixnz #ig_newzealand #kiwipics

I’ve had a cold all week and yet I’ve still managed to have a lovely and fun week. Saw Mamma Mia 2 with friends on Tuesday, went to NZIFF to see Arctic with Steve on Wednesday, and started a jewellery-making class last night. Wellington is great, so much going on. And Wellington on a Plate starts today so I’m ready to spend the weekend eating (although let’s be real that’s every weekend). • • • #newzealand #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #destinationnz #nzmustdo #geothermal #mountains #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #nature #instanature #themountainsarecalling #hikes #landscape #tramping #optoutside #travelnewzealand #girlslovetravel #gltlove #newzealandguide #newzealandfinds #purenewzealand #earthpixnz #ig_newzealand #kiwipics

Steve’s gone up to Auckland for the weekend to watch darts 😝 so I’m going to sneaky take this opportunity to post a pic of him looking artsy af at the Christchurch botanic gardens greenhouse 😜 • • • #portraitphotography #portraits #love #life #lifestyle #people #boyfriend #mirrorless #olympus #justgoshoot #newzealand #christchurch #southisland #botanicalgardens #chch #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #greenhouss #garden #makeportraits #travelnewzealand #newzealandguide #newzealandfinds #purenewzealand #ig_newzealand #kiwipics

I know I’ve used the phrase “like being in another world” to describe someplace in NZ at least a dozen times, but the description definitely fits the feeling of walking among the massive boulders of Castle Hill. • • • #newzealand #castlehill #christchurch #destinationnz #nzmustdo #chch #mountains #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #nature #instanature #themountainsarecalling #hikes #landscape #rockformations #optoutside #travelnewzealand #girlslovetravel #gltlove #newzealandguide #newzealandfinds #purenewzealand #earthpixnz #ig_newzealand #kiwipics #southisland

I love going to yoga classes and following classes on youtube, but nothing compares to the feeling of just rolling out my mat and letting my body tell me what it needs 😌 • • • #newzealand #akaroa #christchurch #destinationnz #nzmustdo #chch #butterfly #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #nature #instanature #natureisbeautiful #hikes #takeflight #learntofly #optoutside #travelnewzealand #girlslovetravel #gltlove #newzealandguide #newzealandfinds #purenewzealand #earthpixnz #ig_newzealand #kiwipics

Wellness Wednesday (it’s Thursday morning here but I know it’s still Wednesday in a lot of the world): it can feel hard to practice mindfulness when we already have a lot of other things on our minds and on our schedules, but there are many ways we can bring more mindfulness into our lives even if we only have ten minutes. My blog today (link in my bio) is about 10 of those ways. • • • #health #wellness #wellnesswednesday #healthylife #healthyliving #mentalhealth #mindfulness #meditation #selflove #selfcare #yoga #innercalm #innerpeace #consciousness #practice #akaroa #newzealand #purenewzealand #sunset #lake #newzealandfinds #blogger #girlslovetravel #gltlove #travelblogger #wellnessblogger #travelnewzealand

The road from Chch to Arthur’s Pass reminded me a little bit of the road from Yoho to Banff in Canada in that you literally had to stop every thirty seconds to take in a view that was even more amazing than the one before it. • • • #newzealand #arthurspass #castlehill #destinationnz #nzmustdo #christchurch #chch #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #themountainsarecalling #hiking #hikes #tramping #instanature #nature #optoutside #travelnewzealand #girlslovetravel #gltlove #newzealandguide #newzealandfinds #purenewzealand #earthpixnz #ig_newzealand #kiwipics #mountains

I finished reading The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton yesterday. It’s set mostly on the west coast of NZ, but there are several mentions of Akaroa, which happens to be where we went hiking today. • • • #newzealand #hinewai #hinewaireserve #destinationnz #nzmustdo #christchurch #chch #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #akaroa #hiking #hikes #tramping #instanature #nature #optoutside #travelnewzealand #girlslovetravel #gltlove #newzealandguide #newzealandfinds #purenewzealand #earthpixnz #ig_newzealand #kiwipics
