Day 081: Fairy Tale Romance

Scheduled by out New Zealand hosts, we traveled to the church where our hosts were married. They had a wonderful wedding at this church. Like I said before, anyone can tell they are madly in love, so it was really great to see where they started their life together. And it was really special that they wanted to share this place with us. If you noticed, the water is super blue; that's because it's glacial water. 173day081a



Day 075: Punakaiki

Oh, hello, New Zealand! One of the first amazing New Zealand south island sites we visited was the Punakaiki Pancake Rock Formations. Absolutely amazing. It's really quite crazy to stare into the horizon and imagine that Antarctica isn't too far away. The view from these formations was breathtaking. I wish I had more time to just sit and appreciate the experience. 167day075a
