Loving New Zealand

The All Blacks have made it to the Rugby World Cup Final, congratulations and ‘about bloody time’. I hope that they don’t choke because if they lose on home soil (especially to the French – no love lost there) I daresay the Kiwis will send out a lynch mob to make them suffer. I’ve already posted several photos from my travels around the land of the long white cloud, but with so many fond memories of my second home and such a beautiful destination, I thought I’d share some more.

    I’m a Kiwi away from home in London, and your pictures remind just how beautiful home is – thank you 🙂

    You’re very welcome. NZ is a beautiful country, there are so many place worth seeing that I wish I could spend a few weeks there every year.
