  • Happy Friday from New Zealand, my friends! On the daily, I get asked for my top travel recommendations for this beautiful place I call home, so I thought I'd share a list with you here. Save this post, book your flights, and you're good to go. ♥️🤙 🏔 Aoraki / Mt Cook National Park: For NZ alpine scenes, it doesn't get much better than this. I recommend exploring Tasman Lake for sunrise, Hooker Lake for sunset, staying overnight at Mueller Hut (pre-book on doc.govt.co.nz) and if you want to some more off the beaten path treks, have a quick google. There are tons! Astrophotography here is also unbeaten (better than Tekapo since you'll have minimal light pollution high up). For tips on how to take your best milky way photos, scroll back to one of my Australia astro shots where I go in depth on this. 💦 Lake Pukaki & Lake Tekapo: I personally much prefer Pukaki over Tekapo. I recommend you stock up in Tekapo and - if you're self-contained - pitch camp at Pukaki to watch sunset/sunrise there. Twizel is not far from Pukaki so that you could stay there too. 🧗‍♀️Wanaka & Queenstown: Again, Wanaka brings the charm, while Queenstown can feel crowded during high season (middle of winter + summer). Your top hikes here are Roys Peak, Isthmus Peak, Brewster Hut, Ben Lomond and the Remarkables. I recommend brunch at Bespoke in Queenstown, staying overnight at the Sherwood in Queenstown and a quick dinner at the Fat Fig in Wanaka. 🌦Milford Sound / Fiordland: A raw paradise you want to spend more than a day in. Marian Lake, The Routeburn Track (you can also do part of this as a day walk), the Kepler Track, the Milford Track (spots can sell out up to a year in advance, refer to the doc website), a cruise in Milford, a kayak or cruise in Doubtful Sound, sunrise over Lake Te Anau; the list is long. 🍃West Coast: You can go far off the beaten track here. Go wild as long as you have the right gear and feel comfortable. Back on the tourist trail, Lake Matheson, the Blue Pools, and Franz Josef Glacier won't disappoint. I'm maxing out the word limit here. I will continue this list in the next few post!

  • New Years Eve spent on the beach, with fireworks left, right and centre. This year's goal is to experiment more with different types of shots, and focus less on the most obvious scene. This turned out to be the perfect start. 🌟

  • I'd been based in the hustle and bustle of Sydney for over a year and couldn't wait to immerse myself in nature back home. After a short flight, I drove to my Mums house, which backs onto the Hunua Ranges, about an hour south of Auckland City. The next morning, with a slightly foggy head due to the rums consumed during the evening's reunion, we drove to this stunning waterfall. Not a bad way to clear the head!

  • Heute sind wir angekommen in der Abenteuer und Action Stadt von der Südinsel 😊 Queenstown merkt man jedoch direkt an, dass es hier sehr viel zu machen gibt und es auch sehr von Touristen geliebt wird. Wir saßen 2-3h in einem Art Reisebüro für die Jugendliche Generation 😅 Dort haben wir uns die Möglichkeiten an Aktivitäten für Neuseeland, aber auch für Australien angeschaut 🤩 Sehr cooles Zeugs, aber auch sehr teuer alles... Danach mussten wir erstmal was essen und den Input sacken lassen. Als ich mir dann etwas zu essen holen wollte, traf ich einfach Erik und Felix wieder 😬 Wir unterhielten uns ein wenig und dann ging es zu viert zum Klippen springen. Der Weg dorthin war kein Kinderspiel und auch die Klippen waren schon ein wenig steil 🙃 Nach kurzen Bedenken ging es für alle ins Wasser. Danach haben wir noch ein bisschen an einer flacheren Stelle die Sonne genossen und sind natürlich nochmal Baden gegangen. Am Abend entschlossen wir uns dann gemeinsam zu grillen 😍 Einmal Steaks und ein Braten. Steaks waren sehr gut, aber der Braten war zu unseren Verblüffung der Hammer! Was ein schöner Abend mit den beiden Chaoten😊 Eine gute Nacht aus Queenstown 💤 📸 : Ist nicht sehr spektakulär, aber sehr harmonisch. Muss auch mal sein. Muss die anderen Bilder mal anschauen. 📍 : Irgendwo Southland. ————————————————— #instagram #picoftheday #reise #fotografie #photograph #luran #engelhardt #drohne #drohnenfotografie #produzent #videmaker #travel #aroundtheworld #dailyblogger #reisenmachtglücklich #bilder #reisefotografie #videograf #fotograf #youtube #blog #neuseeland #australien #reiselust #purenewzealand #newzealand #southisland #mustdonewzealand #backpacker #southland

  • Who practices Yoga? What do you like/hate/struggle with? I’ve been told for a long time it’s something I need to do but meditation/silencing my mind is something that gives me anxiety rather than peace! So where do I start? A video at home? Some breathing techniques? Or just find something else that works better?

  • Favorite parts of our adventure elopement: 1. Frolicking around in a massive field of lupins under the snow peaked mountains- dancing, playing and just being us. No one around, our photographer was so far away at this point, we really got to soak up this moment just the two of us. 2. Helicopter ride to the top of the world to say I do, and exchange vows. This entire experience made us fall even more in love with this magical country ❤️. Oh New Zealand you forever have a very, very special place in our hearts.

  • Nový Zéland mi navždy změnil život. Jeho příroda mě naprosto očarovala. Ani ve snu by mě nenapadlo, že může existovat taková rozmanitost na jednom jediném místě (zelené louky s ovečkama, Jurský park, zlaté pláže, Alpy, ...). Obklopovalo mě neuvěřitelné množství užasných zvířátek skoro na každém kroku a já si na pár chvil připadala jako Disney princezna. Lidé NZ nejsou dokonale upravení (občas chodí na boso do obchodu a občas v pantoflích s fuseklema-btw. je to fakt pohodlný 😆) a nejezdí v nejnovějších autech (i když by mohli), nesnaží se trumfnout materiálnem, ale mají to nejcennější na světě... Milují a mají respekt ke své přírodě, fauně, flóře. Váží si ji a chrání ji, jak jen mohou. To vše se odráží i na lidech a vztazích mezi nimi a nerozlišují jestli si kiwi nebo ne. • • • #voyaged #czechroamers #fotkukazdejden #fotkyplnekysliku #dnescestujem #rsa_outdoors #zahorizonty #folkgeeks #visitnz #purenewzealand #newzealandfinds

  • #3 Wooing Tree Blondini's Bad Ass Wine Tour The Wooing Tree is bad ass because the site whisperers history. Prior to being a Vineyard it was the site of more than one marriage proposal. Local shepherds and farmhands used to meet their sweethearts under the giant Douglas fur tree, before heading into Cromwell's Saturday night dances. Tasting Notes: I consider the 'Blondie' rose to be 'my' wine for obvious reasons and I love the Beetlejuice story. Some of the proceeds from this cheeky red go to support Cromwell's world famous Chafer Beetle. Found only in the Chafer beetle reserve on the Sourh side of town this extremely rare beetle is worth raising a glass too. #winenz #nzwine #winetour #winetasting #centralotago #centralotagonz #Archangel #CellarDoor #purenewzealand #thisisnz #destinationNZ #purenz
