Auckland Skyline in Distance

Auckland Skyline in Distance

Here at Outside Oslo I try to stick to the focus of Scandinavian food but every once in a while something calls to me, asking me to digress. Since I’ve been pretty quiet over here on the blog in recent weeks due to travel, I’ve decided to answer the call of my memories and tell you about my recent trip to New Zealand. I visited–with a stop in Honolulu each way–for a travel piece I’m writing, and while I prepare for that story, I thought it might be fun to visually share some highlights of my experience with you over here.

  1. I have never been to New Zealand but I have heard many times what an absolutely beautiful country it is to visit and live- Your post is only more proof.

    Thanks for sharing.


    1. Ah, it was stunning. Interestingly, parts of it reminded me of Seattle, where I live. I hadn’t expected that! This actually helps me appreciate my hometown even more!

  2. Oh my goodness, this is making me catch the travel bug reallllly bad. I have always wanted to go to new Zealand (and also Australia) and I haven’t been on a trip out of the country in over 3 years. Too long for me! It looks so amazingly beautiful…so happy you had such a wonderful time!
