New Zealand, first half

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 19, 2015, 5:17 PM
So, it's been a while since I last did a journal, and a lot has happened!

I've flown to the other side of the world and I've now been in New Zealand since the 15:th of August. Six months of travelling and looking at nature I'd never seen before. Until yesterday, I was travelling with my best friend. But our 6 months was over, and she needed to go back home to Sweden.
It's been a great trip, and I've seen so many cool things. Amazing plants - ranging from small and beautiful ferns and orchids to big kauri trees!

I've seen lots of wildlife as well; several dolphin, seal and penguin species! And not just penguins, I've seen lots of other really cool birds, like the enormous northern royal albatross, nosy wekas, keas and NZ robins, beautiful kakas and tuis and more. No kiwis though, as they are sneaky nocturnal birds.
And let's not forget the insects; wetas, stick insects, cicadas and mantises.

I fly back home in the beginning of July, so I have some months left still. Hopefully my adventures have only started!

Best of wishes,


Make a nerd happy and buy a print! :heart:

Thank you very much! I did have a great time, and now I'm back in Sweden. How have your time been the last year? You've produced a lot of nice pictures. :nod:

I'll post pictures soon enough, I did see some lovely plants over there...

Best regards,

Hi Pontus!
Great to hear from you.
I know it's hard when things like this come to an end. But I'm looking forward to seeing the photos.
Here things haven't changed much and I'm still shooting a lot so...
I found a gopro while diving and I have been experimenting.
All the best to you too,
