A few snapshots from my amazing mini road trip around the top of the South Island, New Zealand. Places I have never visited before, so many memories & almost 200 photos taken. You can see my first road trip here of Punakaiki.
I hope you all had an amazing New Years – time to start thinking about all the new goals huh? =)

Over the next few days I’ll be sharing my mini road trip adventure of the top of the South Island. I was so lucky to have a few weeks off over Christmas to be able to do this!
First stop was on the west coast – a small town called Punakaiki, famous for its Pancake Rocks & blowholes. These limestone formations were formed 30 million years ago and are truly spectacular.

I was so taken by this place. The gorgeous little winding stone pathways, amazing rock formations with the sea crashing at their base and surrounded by New Zealand flax bushes & Nikau Palms. It was overcast with a light rain which made the whole experience more dramatic.

If you get the chance to visit here, I highly recommend taking this little walk along the coast. Breathtaking & beautiful.xobec
