Things never look quite as nice under fluorescent light. Anyway, here are some objects I own. The sticker on my iPhone I took from a post office in New Zealand. The pen is a Uniball UB-120. Always harder to find than I expect, Officeworks doesn’t seem to stock them. Moleskine notebook and Aesop lip balm.
The Rock Boat Cruise, Bay of Islands. February 2014.
A great last day of our trip, spent on a little boat, visiting islands, snorkelling, kayaking and lying on a beach.
Tongariro Alpine Crossing, New Zealand. February 2014.
A 7 hour, 20km day hike. We climbed the Devil’s Staircase and crossed the South Crater in the fog, and just as we reached the Red Crater, the fog burned off, and we were left with a breathtaking view of Mt Ngauruhoe and the South Crater we had just blindly walked through. Continued on down to the Emerald Lakes and crossed the Central Crater and down into Ketetahi. A tiring but beautiful day.
Tasman Glacier Terminal Lake, Mount Cook, New Zealand. February 2014.
An interesting fact: the terminal lake was formed approximately 40 years ago, and has doubled in size in the last 9 years, owing to there melting Tasman Glacier. Looking back at photos I took 4 years ago, it’s really clear just how much has melted.
