Rain, fog, and waterfalls in Milford Sounds New Zealand

Rain, fog, and waterfalls in Milford Sounds New Zealand

We spent 4 days in New Zealand last week- I don't normally go on such short overseas trips, but there was a 24hr Jetstar sale and we got flights from Sydney to Queenstown for $130 each way! 

Milford Sounds has been on the travel bucket list for awhile, and it was absolutely SPECTACULAR. They say it's one of the wettest part of the world, which gives rise to lush rainforests, beautiful moss covered birch trees,  and hundreds of waterfalls running off the sheer cliff faces after rain.

It was particularly wet on the 2 days that we were there, which made for dramatic waterfalls but also made it very difficult to take photos because the wild winds and sideways rain splattered my lens as soon as I got outside to take photos, even under cover. Lesson learnt- bring lens hood next trip!!

Bay of Fires mini-moon

Bay of Fires mini-moon

The day after our wedding in Hobart, we drove up the east coast of Tasmania to the Bay of Fires lined with those famous red granite rocks. It felt like a dream. 

We spent 2 nights in a beach shack in a secluded area near Binalong Bay, 20mins from the nearest town and 20mins from any phone reception. The shack overlooked the ocean and there was a window in the ceiling directly above the bed which revealed the multitude of the brightest stars you'll ever see.
