Continuing on my Photo Friday post last week, New Zealand Dreaming, I’d like to invite to continue our photographic journeys together through New Zealand’s South Island. This week, we travel from Mount Cook through to Queenstown, and we head towards Milford Sound, one of New Zealand’s premiere tourist attraction.

Dreaming of New Zealand

As I’ve often mentioned before, New Zealand is hands down my favorite travel destination so far. It’s got great scenery, a laid-back atmosphere and a superb infrastructure that makes it a breeze to just explore and get lost in the country’s many beautiful landscapes. For Delicious Baby’s Photo Friday, here’s a photo recap (Part 1) of my New Zealand travels!
