New Zealand’s South Island: 25 Favorite Photos

I haven’t been to New Zealand since I was 15, when I was living and going to school in Auckland. During that time, my family toured the North Island extensively, but we never made it down to the South Island.

So I was looking forward to spending a few weeks having sporting adventures the South Island. This is the environment in which NZ is most known: dramatic mountain vistas and seascapes. I was also surprised by the quaint city-scapes as well.

Christchurch is New Zealand South Island’s largest city and I found it full of charm. Although there were obvious signs of last September’s earthquake, the city was full of life and I thoroughly enjoyed strolling around and soaking up several glorious summer days.

Here’re just one of my favorite skyline scenes:
