Kiwi Magic

One of the most amazing trips I have ever done was a five-day hike on the Milford Track on New Zealand’s south island. Every turn on the track had new scenery and I could imagine the location being the perfect setting for a fairy tale or fantasy book.

 

On a recent trip back to Queenstown, there was one thing I wanted to do – go back for another hike. With only one day spare for hiking, I booked myself on a hike to experience part of another track called the Routeburn. On the day I did my hike, I was the only person booked in, so my guide took me off the beaten track. I traversed by crystal-blue lakes a golden fields of butterflies. 

 

Here’s a few photos from my time in New Zealand, taken on my pocket camera and iPhone.

 

Who needs a filter for this natural beauty. 

This doesn't do the place justice...a walk off the beaten track surrounded by butterflies. 

It's an hour to the top but the view is amazing.

A sweet place to cool the legs down after a tough hike.
