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,

Tack för laman 😊 Senast igår åt jag faktiskt lama he he....
Hoppas kunna få se lite fina bilder som du tagit!
Planerar du en ny resa? Bästa sättet att komma över "homecoming-blues"....... 👍🏾

haha, ingen orsak. Fixar iordniong lite här igår - såg till att ge llamor till alla som gillat mina bilder.
Jo, det blev en hel del bilder på Nya Zeeland, men jag har också en hel del bilder från Sverige.

Nej, det gör jag inte. Tror inte jag har "homecoming blues" över huvud taget, bor just nu på Öland.
Tycker en väldans massa om vår natur och föredrar nog att kolla in våra växter, men det kan nog bli något inom Norden nästa år.

Fast jag var faktiskt nere i Spanien kort efter NZ och träffade min partner, innan han stack iväg till Australien.
Så det känns som om jag rest mer än jag vill för tillfället. Men det var en mycket trevlig vecka i Spanien där jag såg t.ex. Pancratium maritimum och Scilla autumnalis!
