I don’t know about you, but when I think of New Zealand I think of this. Bright green, hills, rocks, mountains nearby, trees. And cows. Not seen in this photo, but also always nearby are the sounds of cows mooing.
This is what a New Zealand farm looks like.
How fantastic is this?!?!
Farms in general are always interesting, but when I discovered this farm I was driving from Rotorua to Taupo and I was running late for a last minute bungee jump time switch. You can read those stories right here and the actual jump right here.
Even though I was running late and really needed to hurry it up a bit, especially because unbeknownst to me, just ahead was a road block due to a construction worker getting stuck on the side of a cliff, I just HAD to stop when I saw this New Zealand farm.
The thing with travelling in New Zealand is that the country is just insanely gorgeous.
Like, have fun trying to find anywhere else this stunning, gorgeous. Yeah…
Well, driving in New Zealand is much more difficult.
Every turn you make you are just floored with the beauty all around you. But it is too dangerous to be pulling over on the side of a small, curvy road. You really don’t know who is driving fast and will be coming around the corner.
But here, the GPS had me drive straight through some huge New Zealand Farm. There was nobody in sight, which made me a tad nervous. I didn’t know if I was allowed to be driving where I was.
It’s not my fault officer, the GPS told me to do it…
So back to my story.
As soon as I realized that there was no one else around, and I could see all around me, I knew it was time to pull over to take a photo of the New Zealand farm that I was driving through.
I am so glad that I did, because I love being able to look back at this photo and remember how nervous and excited I was. Not just because I was the only one driving through this stunning farm, but also because of my bungee jump ahead!
The colors of this photo stand out to me in so many ways, and it really brings me back to this moment.
If only a photo could actually take you back!
