New Zealand – Introduction

Today, we have the 1st of December, so it’s also the beginning of new country on my blog.
This month is going to be all about New Zealand.

Have you been to New Zealand? Is there anyone of you who didn’t like it?

We managed to visit many amazing places on the South and North Island of New Zealand. And, it’s also one of my favorite destinations! I hope, you’ll like my daily impressions about New Zealand and they inspire you to visit this beautiful country!


Grudzień się zaczął, zimno na dworzu, świąteczna atmosfera się rozkręca, a u mnie na blogu tradycyjnie z nowym miesiącem rozpoczyna się nowa seria. Grudzień będzie o Nowej Zelandii.

Gdy na północnej półkuli zimno, na dalekim południu w miarę ciepło, więc mam nadzieję, że moje zdjęcia troszeczkę Was rozgrzeją i zachęcą do odwiedzenia tego pięknego państwa! 🙂

Byliście w Nowej Zelandii? Czy komuś z Was się tam nie podobało? Myślę, że trudno znaleźć taką osobę, ale może… ?

  1. Oooh, looking forward to the New Zealand posts, TR. I have never been there, but hope to some day. In the meantime, I’ll hop over there with you! Terrific photo. 😀

    1. Thank you a lot! You’re very welcome everyday! 🙂
      I hope you’ll enjoy traveling with me, and I’m sure one day you’ll enjoy New Zealand by your own! 🙂

  2. It is a beautiful Country I have mainly been down south but its hard to find anything bad to say about this stunning place and people. I remember going to a cave underground and seeing glow worms that was pretty unique and special.

    1. I loved both islands (+), each place is special and truly beautiful!

      I’ll explain this (+) plus in a few days 😉

  3. Super! Nice gift from you to us for this cold, dark period 😉
    Love this photo! Colours are amazing 🙂

    1. Thank you for your link! Amazing pictures, New Zealand landscape is very inspiring! 🙂
      You’ll find some familiar places on my blog, this month! 😀

  4. Bardzo wątpię, że znajdziesz kogoś na nie ;). Ja o mało co tam nie zostałam i nawet bardzo żałuję, że nie zaryzykowałam deportacji ;). Będę nostalgicznie zaglądać na tę sekcję grudniową, bo tam akurat piękny czerwiec 🙂

    1. At the beginning, we wanted to visit only the South Island, because of all mountains, landscapes; but we also spent some time in the north, and it was also very beautiful!
      Was it cold in August?

  5. Hello, Rockhopper!
    I look forward to this month’s post of yours featuring New Zealand. I love it there. I have been lucky to go visit both the North and South islands – all too brief visits – so I always am keen to return again. So far I have only posted one photo on my blog of New Zealand, and it was on the Southern Alps. I have so many photos, and your blog will perhaps inspire me to dig up mine! 🙂 I always enjoy looking at your pictures, Rockhopper.

    1. Thank you, Michaela!
      I also take too many pictures and then it takes so long to choose a few out of thousands 😉
      What did you like the most from New Zealand?

  6. Yes, one of the best places we have travelled to – see my blog in Jan 2013 on – both N and S Islands are both attractive in their own way and the people so friendly although it obviously it helps by having good weather. Lucky enough to call in to three places in March this year on way back from Australia on a cruise ship as well. Must go back!

    1. I totally agree, New Zealand is an amazing place!
      Thank you for a link, I wanted to check your pictures from New Zealand, but it doesn’t work… 🙁

  7. Ale piękne zdjęcie!
    W Nowej Zelandii jeszcze nie byłam – zawsze podkreślam, że ‘jeszcze’ bo mam ogromną nadzieję, że kiedyś trafię.

  8. What a beautiful photo !!!!! Very gorgeous lake !!!!
    New Zealand is a beautiful country, our mom plan to go visit the country some day !!!!
    Thank you very much for sharing your photos and tips with us !!!!

  9. I lived in Tauranga for a year. New Zealand enjoys a remoteness that keeps the hoards away. That, and a law making it illegal for foreigners to own land.

    Merry Christmas

    Christmas love
    spreads joyfully to
    friends, new and old, as
    natural as mountain streams
    flow under

    ice and snow
    still moving, to join.
    comes from sharing a
    round table. Buddha

    Jesus, Confucius,
    Abraham, Gandhi
    and Luther invite a pope
    to break bread

    under one God
    that all pray to here
    in Gwangju,
    there in Amsterdam,
    and Davao, where the

    hunt for food
    and water reverts to old
    ways, not the
    usual Christmas,
    but children scramble

    for goodies
    like coconuts, fruit, rare meat
    while we feast
    on turkey, baked so
    well, spring rolls folded

    and rolled by
    hands so delicate you can’t
    what they’ve done. Merry
    Christmas everyone.

    1. I also hope to visit New Zealand in a few years again, because some parts are still waiting for me 😉

  10. My most treasured country/travel! I visited in 2011 and would love to return – there is more to see! I made your photo and blog trip backwards, so I want to thank you for an excellent trip!

    1. I thank you so much for visiting! 🙂
      And I’m always happy when my blog brings great travel memories! 🙂

  11. I have a few friends who visited New Zealand. They all told me what beautiful place it is and I’ve always wanted to visit. Perhaps when I can save up enough to go there I will post on here that I finally came to see everything you talked about on your blogs! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    1. It’s a lovely country!
      And it’s a good idea to prepare this trip well in advance, since it’s neither close nor cheap. But, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it one day!
      All the best! 🙂
