As you may know, last year when our wedding season ended, Eric and I went on an epic adventure for nearly 5 months. I haven’t shared many photos yet for a large variety of reasons, one of them being that we’re planning on starting a separate blog devoted just to travel so we can share more photos, tips, and break down how we made our trip work. However, things like that take time and I’ve been itching to share at least a handful of our NZ photos.
We were all over the country and were absolutely blown away by how beautiful it was, every single place we went. We were constantly wondering how the views we were seeing were even real, with that much beauty packed into just one place. They were real though, and there are people who live there and get to look at them every day. I hope they all know how lucky they are.
