The Beauty of New Zealand


, , , , ,

Some of you may know that I’m in New Zealand for two weeks with my mother to visit her partner of 13 years who’s health is seriously failing. A mission both poignant and emotional. As you can imagine, there is little time for blogging, however, perhaps a few pictures of this beautiful country, taken on an earlier visit, might brighten your day. The story of how my mother came to have a partner half way around the world deserves a post of its own :-)
