Having never been to New Zealand before we really did not know what to expect.
What we saw far exceeded any expectations.
Both Islands are truly beautiful but the scenery in South Island was absolutely awesome.
We drove so many miles and saw so many wonderful sights but the lakes left a lasting impression.
Lake Te Anau
It looks like every day was filled with sunshine and blue skies but when we visited Milford Sound we enjoyed a very atmospheric trip.
Milford Sound averages 182 days of rain each year so we were lucky it was just covered in cloud!
The highlight for us was a late Christmas present to each other.
A helicopter ride over the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers on a perfect evening.
Amongst all this natural wonder finding a little bit of Crafty Stuff was just possible!
Beautiful New Zealand wool.
