Wow! New Zealand has been on my list of places to see for a long time. I think it just jumped up a few notches. Great photos.

Itīs funny how in almost every pic thereīs people. I say that because the places look really small and we could guess that could be a "dead" place/street, or with just 1/2 person walking on the street but no! Thereīs a lot of people but i think i can understand...will be a privilege be a tourist or even a resident and step out every day to admire the beauty of the architeture and nature

And then thereīs The Remarkable Sweet Shop

That is one thing that we noticed when we moved to New Zealand - the towns and cities feel a lot bigger than they are because the locals love to be outdoors and they always make use of what is on offer. It is gr8 mate ! I adore the Remarkables Sweet Shop, I wish that we had one up in Auckland

Thanks for the insightful comment mate

In some of the pics of Millbrook you can see some dense forests but generally the vegetation is mostly grasslands .... it could have something to do with the fact that the area is very close to the sea on both sides ... not sure mate, sorry

Thanks for the comment
