New Zealand – Stuck in Customs

The Church

Daily Photo – The Church

Here’s one of the last photos I took in New Zealand before I got on the 10+ hour plane ride from Christchurch to the New Zealand base in Antarctica. That was my base of operations for about a month of some of the craziest adventures ever. We made a ton of videos there that I still haven’t released. Too many projects! 🙂

Daily Photo – Pixels

I realised today that I’ve been gathering my Pixel 6 images for the review for a while now but never really got round to sitting down and sorting them (and the text) out. So that’s another thing added to the to-do list! For now, here’s one of the images from the Pixel 5 which continued Google’s trend of making phones that output quality pixels…

The Wine Cave

Daily Photo – The Wine Cave

I’m told, hopefully reliably, that this (at Gibbston Valley) is the largest wine cave in New Zealand.

Breakfast in Abel Tasman

Daily Photo – Breakfast in Abel Tasman

We got up early and went to go in search of a restaurant for breakfast and ended up about 15 minutes down the road at Onetahuti. It was Mother’s Day, and we were the only ones there without a mother… I mean, we have mothers, but you know what I mean. Afterwards, we took a little stroll on this beautiful beach!

Skinny Dipping on the way to Mount Cook

Daily Photo – Skinny Dipping on the way to Mount Cook/Aoraki

Do you think this lake full of glacial water is cold? Yes? Well, you’re right. I am not a fan of cold water and all my friends that love cold water tell me I am a crazy for not liking cold water as then dive into it naked. I’m like no. I like hot water. I like jacuzzis and stuff. It’s not that complicated but I just can’t get it through their heads.

Over Abel Tasman

Daily Photo – Over Abel Tasman

I’ve lived here in NZ for quite a while and I’ve never even been to Abel Tasman until just a few weeks ago. I did a mega road trip up there and stopped to pick up my bestie Rene in Nelson. We had a great time up there, but we didn’t spend nearly enough time. Every evening had a lovely sunset and the light was amazing. I got the drone up a few times and here is one of my faves!

Drone or Helicopter?

Daily Photo – Drone or Helicopter?

Well this was a pretty good set of choices I had! I saw this really cool gap in this seaside structure on the West Coast of the South Island as we were approaching with the helicopter. We ended up landing on the beach, and I was thinking about launching my quad to get a photo. But then I thought, why would I use my quad? I have a helicopter for the day! So after we took off, I told my pilot friend exactly where to go. Decisions, decisions, I know.
