    Manan you have really stoked my fire again – that might sound rashly inappropriate but you know what I mean 😛
    lovely pictures too…

  5. I was so close (when in Australia)… but never made it here. Maybe one day. Thanks for linking up to #SundayTraveler again.

  6. This country is just very beautiful ! Its the best place I have been to until now in my life
    It is just heaven on earth! 🙂 🙂

  7. New Zealand is just so amazing. I feel like I would need a whole year to explore the country properly.

    • NZ certainly is magnificent Adelina! I met many people in New Zealand who were living there for over a year on a working holiday visa, working for 3-4 days of the week and travelling for the rest. Seemed like the best way to see New Zealand for a prolonged time and on an economical budget.

  8. New Zealand is always been my fascination….I will definitely visit there to the land of wonders..
