Reflections

Heya.. long time.. ^^ being on the move doesn’t leave much time for the net.. but here we go again! From Nelson Lakes over to West Coast, to Karamea and down, down, down was our path leading us. At the moment we are in Franz Joseph village and are going to do a full-day glacier hike tomorrow. :)

Have a few photos from the last days; you’ll see that reflections seemed to play a big role! ^^

Around Karamea is limestone country, you can find wonderful arches there! (If you take it on you to drive a hell of a gravel road there, that is.. ^^)

Jap, I did this!!! :) It’s not too hard, but it takes a whole day for the jade is hard and even with machinery it just takes ages..
