The final Photography Friday! Z is for New ‘Zealand’

Aotearoa. New Zealand. The land of the long white cloud. My home.

I think it is fitting that I end my Photography Friday alphabet series with my home: New Zealand. By now you’ll know that I’m currently in Africa and the my end destination for this set of travels next June, is New Zealand. After 5 years of living in the UK and travelling around the world, I’m looking forward to heading home.

Without saying too much more, let me show you why I love my home country (besides the pies and fish n’ chips):

Much more investigating of the South Island is required next year, I can’t wait to see more of my own country!
