These photo make me want to go on another road trip exploring New Zealand! The only problem is that every corner you turn, you want to stop and take another photo – its all sooo beautiful!
On our road trip to Ellerslie Flower Show in Christchurch, we went through the Lewis Pass and spent a night in Hanmer. These are the pics from this…

We were so lucky to have sunny weather as it had been snowing and the roads were crazy slippery. Snowing in summer?!

The image above is from one of my favourite pieces of road – lined with a forest of beech trees with their black trunks and bright green leaves. You can smell the fresh forest air as you drive past…sooo good!
This is such a beautiful drive to take – especially when the sun is shining, theres snow on the hills & your favourite tunes are playing =)

  1. Beautiful photos, Bec. And you’re right, I do want to stop and take “just one more” photo around every corner… (I have a very understanding husband). Glad you had good weather for your trip south : )

  2. Icing is such a perfect word – thank you poppytump. It’s like the landscapes cupcakes have been iced! :)

  3. You make it sound as good as it looks with your descriptions Bec ! Lovely carefree pictures .
    We’ve had so much rain and gales and storms here in the Uk this winter , a little icing of snow on top of our Hills would be perfect for me :-)
