The First Time I Saw New Zealand

The first time I saw New Zealand was when we moved here nearly 2 years past.  There was no pre-visit for me – I just got on a plane and followed Chris, all while hoping that the country was as lovely as it seemed in pictures.  My view from the plane window that early morning was hazy and rainy.  We’d gotten here right at the beginning of winter and I wondered where the beautiful, green New Zealand that I’d heard about was hiding.  It was so gray and wet.  What had I gotten myself into?

This, my lovely readers, is a perfect example of why you shouldn’t always rely on first impressions.  That gray, rainy weather cleared up and I got to see how beautiful New Zealand can be.  Below are some of my photos from that first month {remember, it was leading into winter}…

Downtown Ferry Building – gorgeous, isn’t it?

Park by Emily Place – so pretty!

We saw some hilarious signs {those Kiwis and they’re dry sense of humor!}…

It’s fun to look back at old photos and remember what was going on when I took them and how I felt at the time!

    Ah, yes. First impressions are important, but not always accurate. NZ is an absolutely lovely place! (p.s. Sorry for my slow commenting… I’ll have to get used to your more frequent posts! I’m loving them!)
