It’s been two months since we’ve been back from our honeymoon and I finally got around to making a post about it. Below are some of our favorite moments from New Zealand and Australia. (January 31, 2014 – February 14, 2014) You can see the full album on facebook.
Auckland Domain Wintergardens – Auckland, New Zealand: I loved this place so much! #flowersaremyfav
Waitomo Caves – Waitomo, New Zealand: These caves are filled with glowworms and we went black water rafting through them! At first, it was really scary because it was dark inside and you couldn’t see where you were going, but after we got out of the rocky area, the top of the caves were lit up with blue lights, which were the glowworms.
Hobbiton – Matamata, New Zealand: No trip to New Zealand would be complete without doing something related to Lord of the Rings, so we went to Hobbiton, the place where they were filmed! Here is Andrew in front of Bilbo Baggins’ house. We also had a delicious alcoholic beverage from the Green Dragon.
Queenstown, New Zealand: Queenstown was absolutely gorgeous! We could not get over how blue the water was. This great view was taken from the Skyline. Also on top of the mountain was a luge. We had a lot of fun riding this a couple of times.
Milford Sound – South Island, New Zealand: We took a boat tour and loved it. It was so relaxing!
Church of the Good Shepard – Lake Tekapo, New Zealand: This is one of my favorite places we’ve been. It is so gorgeous and peaceful. I could’ve stayed there for hours.
Sydney Opera House – Sydney, Australia: In Sydney, we took a tour of this iconic building. Seeing the Opera House in person really makes you appreciate the beauty of it.
Hunter Valley, Australia : We found a lot of tasty wines during our tour through Hunter Valley, some of our favorites being Pinot Gris and Sémillon!
Featherdale Wildlife Park – Sydney, Australia: We also went to Featherdale Wildlife Park where we got to feed kangaroos and pet a koala!!
Fitzroy Island – Cairns, Australia: For the last part of our honeymoon, we stayed on an island in the Great Barrier Reef, Fitzroy Island. We went kayaking, soaked up the sun on the beach, and went snorkeling. We saw some really amazing coral in pastel blue, pink, and yellow, and we also saw an electric blue starfish!
