New Zealand.

So I have some pretty exciting news! In a few weeks I will be going to New Zealand on a working holiday visa! I know, it's pretty crazy, I am insane, whaaat? Yes, I have heard all of those things now, and had a lot of shocked faces! I decided I would go just a few weeks ago, so I'm pretty busy trying to organise everything and pack. But it is something I have wanted to do for a long time, and New Zealand just looks like such a gorgeous country! It's no secret that I love nature, and it looks like they have so many incredible places to see. I am hoping to stay for a year (that's how long my visa is valid for) and visit as many places as I can, and find work along the way. I'm planning on taking a lot of photos, and filling many pages of my sketchbook, so I should have lots to share here, just I will be on the other side of the world. Have you ever been to New Zealand? Any tips for moving to a new place? 

Yes, all of these photos are from New Zealand. Hopefully that will make my decision a little easier to understand! All images are from my Pinterest board which can be found here.

    2. Well maybe its better that you haven't so you don't arrive there with a preconceived idea of what it should be like... and you won't expect hobbits to be walking around like I would haha

  5. That is so amazing! Congratulations! I friend of mine has been to NZ a few times for school related things and she's actually an expert on Maori studies. It seems like such a spectacular place.
