Going on a holiday often means stepping out of your comfort zone. If you’re in a country known for its great outdoors like New Zealand, that means you might want to go for a tramp even if you’re not an avid hiker. In my latest blog post (link in bio) I discuss important tips for beginner hikers for packing, gear, safety, and how to be respectful to the environment and to your fellow hikers. • • • #tongariro #nguaruhoe #mountdoom #nature #instanature #hike #hikes #optoutside #getoutdoors #tongarirocrossing #tongariroalpinecrossing #mountain #themountainsarecalling #newzealand #letsexplore #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #olympus #girlslovetravel #mirrorless #gltlove #tramping #lovenewzealand #ig_newzealand #newzealandguide #leavenotrace

The Jim Henson Retrospectacle concert was unbelievably full of joy, you could just feel the happiness radiating from everyone in the venue, on stage and in the audience, young and old. Fun, funny and charming, and a wonderful showcase of the work of such an inspiring artist who brought love and delight to so many around the world. Definitely got a little misty-eyed when Kermit the Frog and Bret McKenzie started the show with ‘Rainbow Connection’. • • • #muppets #sesamestreet #fragglerock #jimhenson #retrospectacle #nzso #music #wellington #newzealand #puppetry #art #jimhensonretrospectacle

While I was definitely glad the weather on the Tongariro crossing cleared up so we could enjoy some amazing views, the first hour or two of trekking through rain and fog was cool in its own way, like hiking on a different planet. • • • #newzealand #tongariro #tongarirocrossing #instanz #tongariroalpinecrossing #hike #letsexplore #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #neverstopexploring #hikes #olympus #olympusomdem10 #omdem10 #girlslovetravel #mirrorless #gltlove #tramping #newzealandguide #lovenewzealand #fog #mounttongariro #ig_newzealand #nature #instanature #optoutside

Back in Wellington now after a trip around some of the most beautiful parts of the North Island. We’re planning our first trip to the South Island for next month and I’m sure what everyone says is true that it’s even more stunning, but I feel like maybe the north island doesn’t get quite enough credit for all that it has to offer 😍 • • • #newzealand #tongariro #tongarirocrossing #instanz #tongariroalpinecrossing #hike #letsexplore #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #neverstopexploring #hikes #olympus #olympusomdem10 #omdem10 #girlslovetravel #mirrorless #gltlove #emeraldlakes #newzealandguide #lovenewzealand #geothermallake #mounttongariro #ig_newzealand #nature #instanature #optoutside

For the first couple hours of the crossing the weather was so poor, raining and foggy, that we wondered whether we’d see much of anything at all. I know some people who did the hike yesterday as well rushed through it because of the weather, but luckily we stuck it out and were rewarded with clear skies and amazing views. • • • #newzealand #tongariro #tongariroalpinecrossing #instanz #geothermal #hike #letsexplore #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #neverstopexploring #hikes #olympus #olympusomdem10 #omdem10 #girlslovetravel #mirrorless #gltlove #mountain #newzealandguide #lovenewzealand #mounttongariro #views #ig_newzealand #hiking #tongarironationalpark #optoutside #tongarirocrossing

The rocks and pools are nice and cool, so juicy sweet, we only wish to catch a fish, so juicy SWEEEET — arrived in Tongariro late this afternoon and hoping to do the alpine crossing tomorrow but this evening we had the chance to check out another LotR filming location 🐠 • • • #newzealand #tongariro #tawhaifalls #instanz #lordoftherings #lotr #letsexplore #travelblogger #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #neverstopexploring #filmlocation #olympus #olympusomdem10 #omdem10 #girlslovetravel #mirrorless #gltlove #love #newzealandguide #lovenewzealand #waterfall #waterfallsfordays #ig_newzealand #gollum #water #optoutside #instanature
