Repost from @tpltraveled! Amazing shot of our big backyard! We’re so lucky 😍

A HUGE thank you to Ollie from @visionworkshop.co.nz who came to visit our park yesterday & collected some more footage for use in our new promo video.
Watch out for it soon!
At just 18 years old he’s making an amazing start to his filming career! Make sure you check out his page and get him involved if you want any videos.
**I T ‘ S T H E L I T T L E T H I N G S ** this week is a Sun Orchid 🌸 these guys only come out in the middle of the day when it’s really sunny, come in many different species and colours, and flower between now and February #GlacierEcoToursNZ 👣#flowerstagram#flowersnz
Одним из символов Новой Зеландии является папоротник в различных проявлениях. Бывает в виде полного листа, а бывает вот так, как на фото (полистайте фотки и нажмите на хештегу #nzkoru это действительно красиво!) Называется это спираль Koru, которая представляет собой скрученный, еще не раскрывшийся лист папоротника. Кору символизируют новую жизнь, личностный рост, силу, дух перемен, гармонию и спокойствие.
Загогулинки Кору частенько ложатся в основу логотипов, украшений, сувениров, и различных произведений искуств.
Так как мы не успели информационно прокачаться перед поездкой, то познаем все на месте и в процессе. И я даже не сразу поняла, что это за милые закорючки такие. А дети, конечно же, увидели в этом сооружении папу, маму, Сашу, Софью и Анечку 😊

Jonathan looks down into Te Puna-a-Hangarua at Hamurana Springs. The water is reappearing above ground after 70+ years traveling through underground aquifers. It pumps out over 4.5 million liters of water per hour and goes down nearly 50 feet here. It produces a river that just flows out from this spot with perfectly crystal clear water. Black swans roam the pools downstream and the path is lined with redwoods.
There seems to be a bit of an uproar here about the entry payment here, which went into effect a couple of years ago. With a bit of googling, it appears that the area used to be public land and upkeep was government subsidized. It was handed back to the Ngati Rangiwewehi in 2014 following a Treaty of Waitangi claim, and it's now theirs to maintain. Seems like the least that tourists and Pākehā (non-Maori New Zealanders) can do is pay a tiny fee to see some of the beautiful land that we forcibly removed from Maori care back in the day.
Like the US, NZ has a nasty colonial history. And a lot of their scars are pretty recent. I think it's important to look at how other places are dealing with these issues to help us learn how to confront them back home.
🇸🇬 Singapore to Auckland 🇳🇿
Day 2 & 3 of our #honeymoon

So, after Kevin throwing a wobbly yesterday on the way to Queenstown, mainly because he wanted to stay in Milford sound! We eventually got to our campsite if a few hours delayed.. Today however his owner took a flight from Auckland down to get him going again. While this was going on we enjoyed strolling around Queenstown, enjoyed the views from the top of the Skyline, did some luging and then finished the night of with a private hot tub session during sunset
