Photographing New Zealand

I love, love, love taking pictures with my camera, and I think that photography is a great way to remember my experiences. So I decided to make a blog post about taking pictures in New Zealand. I’m not a pro photographer at all, but it’s one of my favorite hobbies, and I just wanted to […]

Police on a road trip

Yesterday we did a 4 hour drive from Kokatahi to Hanmer Springs. It was a pretty normal drive, except for one thing: cops had to stop us twice. The first time it happened was because my dad didn’t see the speed limit sign while we were driving through a residential area. My dad then didn’t […]

Driving in New Zealand

Let’s go back a bit: when we were in Australia, I didn’t really know what to expect for New Zealand. I thought, we would be driving everyday, it would be snowing all the time and there would be lots of hills. I was wrong about most of those things. There are only actually a few […]
