It’s pretty easy to get lost here. Not in the physical way where you wander around not knowing where you are, but in a emotional or metaphorical way. It’s easy to get lost in the green of the landscapes, in the easy manner of it’s people, and in the grand panoramas of the coastlines.
Southland is the southern most region of the South Island of New Zealand. We’ve traveled through the Canterbury and Otago regions to get to Southland and have been loosing ourselves in the beautiful scenery of the eastern and southern coasts, visiting the cities of Dunedin, Invercargill, Te Anau, and others along the way.
It is a beautiful country that is hard to describe. So, here’s some selected images that illustrate what we’ve been seeing.
We like to travel and even spent nine years roaming around North America in a 40 foot motorhome. We're now back in a home in Washington state roaming by car, air, and boat.
These pictures bring back some memories. I travelled to New Zealand in the early 90’s. I spent 3 months there, traveling from the north end of the north island to Stewart Island in the south.
Are you going to Stewart Island?
Having just four weeks here, we chose to skip Stewart Island. Sounds like you had a fantastic trip!
I can see what you mean! Beyond words to describe even the pix. Stunning, magnificent, etc., just don’t seem enough. This collection of pix cover a nice, wide range of visuals…. Attractive culvert you have there! When I first saw the bull kelp I thought “Mermaid’s Hair”….
