  • Taking a moment under New Zealand's tallest mountain. It's important to look up, breathe and appreciate where you at any moment in time. Precious moments that make life so amazing.

  • Hidden among middle earth and guarded only by sheep, the Lost World cave entrance is a narrow crack in the earth. The entrance is 300 feet above an underground forest pierced open by beams of sunlight. Feels like you’re descending into a Jules Verne novel.

On the beach in New Zealand, I always feel insignificant against the million miles of ocean between here and the next piece of land.

Currently reading the Lord of the Rings while also living in and exploring the real Middle Earth. So prepare yourselves for a lot of Tolkien quotes in my posts from now on 🧙‍♂️#destinationnz #newzealandvacations

  • Where human activities meet raw nature, pretty incredible to see the fine line from the air. 
Also, the peak in the background I believe is called Mt Onslow (2203m), part of the Cloudy Peak Range.

  • We were hiking the famous Hooker Valley Track and crossed this suspension bridge over the river along the way. It was swaying back and forth as we crossed it in a storm, which made for an even wilder adventure.

On my New Zealand trip, I packed my gear in @highsierra_usa's new OTC carry-on backpack. I was so relieved I brought this water resistant pack with me so my gear stayed dry even in the pouring rain. #otc #highsierrapartner

  • I get so many DMs from young people just starting out in life, feeling so depressed and unhappy that they want to give up even before starting out! I was thinking about it and was wondering if too much indulgence in social-media is the cause for this. When we see influencers traveling all over the world having so much fun, we want to live the same life and when we don’t get it immediately, we become unhappy, moody and depressed. But what we forget is that anybody who has achieved success (whether it’s Instagram or anything else), has had many years of hard work and struggle behind him or her. It’s a long, arduous, hard, sometimes painful, boring, uninspiring, lonely journey to success. I remember reading about this blogger who is very successful now, how she didn’t have enough money to even buy food or gas for many years. Till the time our minds don’t accept that we will have to struggle, we will continue to remain moody and depressed. The problem is these days we want to reach the summit without climbing the mountain and when we can’t do that, we get frustrated and unhappy! Give yourself time guys - give yourself lots of time - like many, many years - and be happy now, for if you don’t choose to be happy, life will crush you. Seriously, that’s something I learnt about life. #thingstodot

  • Мы вновь были в #MOTAT 🚂
В этот раз на Life day:  Больше всего понравились старые трамваи и паровозы! Покатались на всём.) Особенно доволен папа 🤟
⠀
А я начинаю смотреть программы на каникулы. Тут распространено, что в дни школьных каникул все центры развлечений, досуга и спорта делают свою программу на это время. Я такое люблю, потому что все равно дома быстро надоедает сидеть.) А в музеях такие программы могут быть особенно интересны! 🤹‍♂️
⠀
Ищу Артёму класс по рисованию, а Платону что-то музыкальное. Такие виды развлечений стоят тут дороже, чем спортивные, но кажется мальчикам не хватает креативной деятельности.) Только прыгаем и лазим как обезьянки 🐒

  • Lake Tekapo is on the list of every New Zealand traveller - for a good reason! The lake seems to change colour with every visit, the nights clear and the starlit sky is amazing. Driving up (or walking up) to thr observatory treats with views over the lake, mountains amd surroundings is by far less crowded then the chapel by the lake shore which has lost its charm as a place of worship, peace and quiteness with the busloads of incoming tourist.

  • One of our favourite nights in NZ to date!✨💕✨
.
At about 4pm, we decided to tackle the Sealy Tarns track for sunset and head up the 2,200 steps. 😲🏔😬
.
But once we had reached the tarns (at about 5:30), we decided to continue on and get to Mueller Hut for sunset. 😅🏔🙈
.
And then once we reached Mueller Hut, we decided to head back to a rock we had spotted along the path and watch the sunset there (and eat our peanut butter apples 🍎🥜🤤).
.
And then (again) as we were sitting there on the rock, eating our pb apples and admiring Aoraki, we made a joke about watching the sunset back at the tarns. 🤗🤣🤦🏼‍♀️
.
And. We. Were. OFF! The next 20 mins were a whirlwind with us running, stumbling and tumbling just to get there in time. To the exact spot we had been sitting at three hours earlier. 🏃🏼‍♀️😅🏃🏻‍♂️
.
To you reading this, you’re probably thinking wow - what an unorganised, indecisive and potentially irrational couple we are. And to be fair to you, we probably are. 🤣😆🤣
.
But these are the nights we live for. The nights where we are just SO keen to explore. SO keen to see what’s around the corner. SO keen to see more of the incredible scenery. So much so, that our logic, planning and common sense just go out the window. For we are completely and utterly caught in the moment. 💕✨💕
.
PS check out our story if you want to see a few snippets from the walk!😜🙈♥️

  • Мальчики сами ездят в школу. 🛴
10 мин пешком или на самокате в два раза быстрее.)) и веселее!
⠀
Пока что ходим проверять. Я бегаю мимо школы.) Заодно мотивация идти на пробежку. Волнуешься как они там — беги. 🏃🏽‍♀️
⠀
А в дальнейшем планируем купить им часы с gps и возможностью позвонить, написать смс 🤟
⠀
В общем,  вот так вот в 7 (или 8) дет они сами стали ходить в школу. Так неожиданно) и непривычно! Раньше я даже не представляла такого варианта. Да и вообще привыкли по 40 мин в школу ехать и обратно. После таких привычек (а это было уже не в тягость, а просто норма), такие изменения особенно ощущаются. Все довольны ☺️😀🙃

Сегодня на работе нам предлагали поделиться своими чувствами и переживаниями по поводу трагедии. Почти 40 минут мы слушали друг друга и поддерживали.
Мне кажется новозеландцы больше всего сейчас хотят помочь и таким образов выразить солидарность и единство. Потому что важен каждый новозеландец!
Никто не отгораживается от проблемы/трагедии, ни слова об осуждении, только желание поддержать тех, кому тяжело.
Они нафандрайзили только на одном ресурсе почти миллион nzd за день.
⠀
*если вам сейчас некомфортно просто пойти в магазин, на прогулку с собакой — скажите нам и мы пойдём с вами* (комментарий в фб)
⠀
*If you need to talk to someone about how you’re feeling, you can call or text 1737 any time, for any reason.* (письмо на почту)
⠀
Они поражают меня своим уровнем эмпатии и вовлечённости. Им действительно важно чтобы у вас все  было в порядке... И особенно в такой момент.
