Photo Friday – Camping in Fiordland, New Zealand

11 Jan

We spent a few nights before the New Year camping at different sites along the road to Milford Sound on the South Island of New Zealand.  It was stunning.  I think we got supremely lucky with the weather because this area is one of the wettest places in the world and our first three days were full of nothing but summer sun, gorgeous blue skies and sunsets like this.

    Gorgeous! We drove through there & it was so spectacular. I can’t even imagine how awesome camping out would be. Can’t wait to see more photos!

      It was easily the most beautiful place we’ve camped!

    AWESOME photo! I love the colors of the sky and flowers. I can’t wait to go to New Zealand. I keep hearing how awesome it is (and cheaper than Australia). Enjoy and Happy 2013! 🙂

      I know right! I assure you though, it’s totally real.

    Yep you got lucky! When we spent a day at Milford it poured, but we got lucky at Doubtful and it was gorgeous!

      We had three totally spectacular days, though we’ve been poured on quite a lot since then so I suppose it all balances out. We really wanted to go to Doubtful, but it was SO EXPENSIVE. Thought we’d save it for ‘next time’.

    Your whole trip was definitely spectacular……and enjoyed by many of us who could not take their eyes off the computer when you wrote…..”thank you for the trip, on my bucket list”
