I'm not normally a 'nature' person, but your NZ photos make me sooo want to go there...

Hard to imagine something that melts so easily surviving for so many years!

What a powerful image of you holding history in your hand..

All of your photos of NZ just convince me that I need to go there even more.

Hi Belle - Thanks! I'm not a "nature" person either but NZ is absolutely gorgeous.

Hi Celia - Apparently it took hundreds of years for glaciers to end up in the Tasman Glacier Terminal Lake. I find that quite amusing too.

Hi Phuoc - Thanks! I also LICKED this piece of history five seconds after this shot was taken, hehe.

Hi Kristy - Thanks! You really should - watch out for the next Jetstar sale!
