Akaroa, New Zealand

Taking a break from wine-touring in New Zealand, this was one of the best decisions we made! Akaroa is a very small French settlement southeast of Christchurch on the South Island, with a population of only 625. Make sure you sign up for a tour to go see penguins in the wild. It's quite difficult to do it on your own (you'll definitely need 4WD!)

This picture is from above the town looking down, while on that tour.

Make sure you sign up for a tour to go see penguins in the wild

Penguins are so often seen here as a comparison or image, when they say about certain behavior - often pretty. But I did not get the idea to really study these animals. It's interesting, thanks.

It is a country of contrasts and hundreds of places to know. It is rather small, but it has a geography and impressive landscapes. Thank you for the beautiful picture, it seems of tumblr♥

Didn't know New Zealand has contrast but that does make sense. Amazing. Upvoted.

@berniesanders @grumpycat @wtf.. #abuse.. @hendrix22 @morten @geronimo @thejohalfiles @thesloth @steemcleaners @ The rewards on these posts are getting somewhat excessive and if not curbed will be the wine travelling haejin.. Multiple posts of little substantive content and disproportionate rewards payout.. ???????? Someone with some horsepower needs to give this a look..

Really this is a $200 post??

·

It is not. She just got lucky with some whale. That's why I think the steemit has no bright feauture with same system. Ouuu I think you forgot @wnfdiary

I agree, this is why so many that actually put in the hard work get demotivated when they only get peanuts for their posts...

Yup, kinda figured that is how that would go, high rewards, no stake, no investment in the site, typical shithead behavior..

·

I don't think so. It should be flagged. On the other hand I spent a lot of time in sharing good content but still don't get on how Steemit works: https://steemit.com/travel/@smartbackpacker/traveling-the-balkans-1-romania

I agree with you..

one more for my bucketlist!!

I hope I could go there one day, the planetickets are not so cheap from Belgium

Nice view of nature's beauty

Good choice! That is an amazing picture!

Damn what a shot! Would really wish to visit this place, if you have any more pictures of this beauty make sure to post them. Where are you originally from? Wine touring definitely sounds like an interesting idea :)

worth it to get to take in a vista like that.

what a beautiful geological formation, thanks for the photo

Stunning photography, Jen!

Beautiful picture dude.

New Zealand is goregous. If I visited I doubt I'd leave. A dream would be to have a little house on a hill like that with a view of a lake like that.

thx 4 the photo of tranquility :)

What will it cost a tourist residing outside Australia to get this experience ?

Amazing view, I hope to visit myself one day.

WOW nice picture
I love New Zealand it's a great place

really a good decision, it was.

Beautiful scenery I congratulate you for your photography

I would want to travel to new zealand for its amazing adventure opportunities, have heard a lot about bungee jumping there, also it is a place with diverse geography, would allow you to travel for miles without seeing people

New Zealand it's a magic place, unbelievable!

So beautiful

goddamn, that sounds good !!

That is a lovely landscape photo! I've been fond of New Zealand ever since I learned The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy was shot there. I wanted to experience its mountains and greenery!

Power Rangers was filmed there for a season or more. Other things were filmed in New Zealand as well. Wonderful place. I'm Oatmeal. Liked. Shared. Upvoted. Resteemed.

Beautiful picture, we would love to go there and see some penguins :)

Amazing. We will visit NZ later, if crypto will bring some plus. According today we are going in Bangladesh :)

wow amazing view!!

New Zealand is definitely one of my favorite countries. Can you believe it was my first ever international trip?! What a country for a first international holiday right? It was also my first travel with my husband. Makes it all the more special. We did a 15 day campervan road trip of the entire length and breadth of the south island and I'd say New Zealand spoiled us rotten. The experience is unmatchable. Akaroa was indeed beautiful! Such fond memories from that holiday! :)

Beautiful pictures!

Gorgeousssss!!!

So good @travelingsomm. I really want to visit New Zealand someday, the landscape looks so inspiring and slightly similar to that of here in the UK (much better I imagine). Hopefully I can go soon :) Keep up the good work.
