Because these travel posts get so full of text, I thought I’d start sharing some fun travel photos, if that’s OK with you?
We were driving through the New Zealand countryside on a tour bus from Milford Sound to Queenstown when I briefly glanced up from the book I was enjoying and caught the image above. It is about as perfect of a scene as I can imagine. This was one of our first days in New Zealand and I thought we’d see rainbows wherever we went, but that didn’t end up being the case. This was the one and only rainbow we saw, and it was amazing. This photo also pretty aptly sums up the natural beauty that exists in New Zealand. Snow capped mountains, with rolling hills, and green plains meet the very low hanging clouds.
Now let’s get to the deals, shall we? Here’s a round-up of some of the travel deals and news that has hit my in-box recently.
