With all the hype over the release of the movie The Hobbit, we are reminded of our journey through New Zealand two years ago. What better way to relive a memory than through a photo journey from our time there. New Zealand really does conjure up images of Middle Earth. While we travelled through the [...]
We had so many opportunities to take incredible photos in New Zealand. Each scene was more spectacular than the last and Lake Tekapo was no exception. The Church of the Good Shepherd was one of the first churches built in the area and it makes for the perfect photo spot for anyone stopping here for a look.
As I sit down to write this 2011 Adventure Travel Round up, I am in shock and awe that we really did all these things in a span of 365 days. We just lived a year of adventure travel that I never thought I would have the opportunity to ever do in my life
What a sight! When they told us we were going to the Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland I was a little skeptical. It sounds like a kids science park. Not really the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the North Island of New Zealand. I was taken by surprise when I entered and [...]

It is a glorious thing to see a whale in the wild. We were the last tour of the day to go out with the aptly named Whale Watch Kaikoura in New Zealand.
I finally got my nerve up to skydive with Dave. Everywhere we go in New Zealand we see billboards and posters about skydiving and bungy jumping. The slogan of many an outfit is “Embrace the Fear.” If you know me well, you will know that I am not the best candidate for jumping off of [...]
If you manage to only do one hike during your visit to New Zealand, make sure it is the Tongariro Crossing on the North Island. It is considered New Zealand’s best 1-day hike and in many circles it is considered one of the best in the world.
We were excited about tackling the Tongariro Crossing in New Zealand. It is dubbed the Best 1-day Hike in the World and we wanted to see if it lived up to its reputation.
Walking on a glacier is dangerous business if you don’t know what you are doing. So we took a tour with Fox Glacier guides here in New Zealand.
We wanted to see the glowworm caves when traveling to New Zealand. Glowworms live in utter darkness and light up their caves by weaving florescent webs to trap their prey. It’s a magnificent setting in Te Anau on the South Island.
