Queenstown – South Island – New Zealand
“So Fancy flying over to New Zealand to take some family pics, I can promise you awesome wallpaper and red wine?” she said,
“Does the Pope S**t in the woods!?” I said grabbing my passport, locking the kids in the cupboard under the stairs then running to the airport.
What an amazing weekend. Staying with Chloe (from www.chloelodge.com fame) and her family was fabulous. I’m not sure anyone else got a word in though. We talked at each other none-stop for 24 hrs, only to pause to drink wine and eat cake.
That’s what its like when you meet someone with such passion, you feed off the way they think and express. I felt like I was being lifted. HEAVEN!
And New Zealand, my god its like a film set. And that light. I swear the light is blue, totally clean blue, not a dust or pollution particle in site. I basically had to check my white balance 37 times in the first 3 minutes. And the colours, they punch you in the gut and scream at you. They scream “If you desaturate me I’ll scope your eyes out with a spoon” (I’m not going to lie, it was a little scary)
So yeah, we just hung out, in the blue, with me taking the odd picture here and there.
Like the heavens and the skies
Like the deep seas so wide
When I am confident and true
When I have faith in you
Colour me blue, colour me blue
