Views of New Zealand

A short morning drive to liven up the senses and wake us up to a world full of wonder and beauty! Something we noticed is that these kind of vistas are quite prominent in New Zealand as well as Canada, and the resemblance is often very striking, to the point where you wouldn’t know in which country you were standing, looking out onto the blue of the lakes and its high-towering peaks …
