It may not quite be Winter time in New Zealand right now but how can you not share these beautiful photos?

No joke, the morning before this photo was taken there was no snow on the ground at all. Waking up to this winter wonderland was a lovely surprise!

Not to mention South Island received the most snow fall in almost a decade the week we were there , how crazy!

The mountains are so big they don’t fit in the IG frame! Just a couple of newly engaged travellers sitting on the banks of Lake Wakatipu on the way to Glenorchy ...

An evening spent with @real.newzealand on board a Milford Sound cruise ship. Probably the most stunning place we’ve ever been.

Milford sound is technically a fiord, given it was carved by glaciers many years ago. It leads out to the Tasman Sea and is home to the worlds only alpine parrot, New Zealand fur seals as well as the occasional dolphins and whales 🙂

Still reeling from our trip to Aotearoa, so many incredible places and memories we made 💍 ❤️

Still can’t over how beautiful Fiordland National park is - Doubtful sound is definitely on the cards for the next visit!

Stay tuned for a new blog post on ‘the best things to do in Queenstown’ coming soon 🤫

We debated sharing this moment from our New Zealand trip here or keeping it personal, however we thought we would share the magic of that day with whomever wanted to smile a bit 🙂

I set up the tripod as I normally do to take photos of ourselves, only this time Laura didn’t know that I would be using it to record the moment we got engaged.
It worked out so well, she had no clue at all what was about to happen. She had always wanted to be proposed to near water, so I think I did a good job with being at the 8th wonder of the world, near a waterfall, the fiords of Milford Sound, and a crescent moon rising above the mountain (hard to see above the fiord )

Finallyyy getting around to sharing photos and videos from our time here in Aotearoa so far - to say we’ve found our new favourite country is, accurate!

The first week we spent most of it in #fiordlandnationalpark exploring Milford sounds and the surrounding regions and having friendly chats with a couple of cheeky Kea’s. Is New Zealand not your favourite travel destination?

📍 Fiordlands has the wettest climate in all of NZ
- is listed unofficially as the 8th wonder of the world and a UNESCO world heritage site Te Wāhipounamu
- the landscape changes from greenstone fiords to over 10,000 waterfalls cascading down the mountain side!

🚙 To get here you will first have to take the Southern scenic route from Queenstown for 2.5 hours to Te Anau, and onwards through to Milford along the Milford highway for another 2 hours or so.
