New Zealand blues

I lived and worked in New Zealand from Oct 2006 until Mar 2009. Every now and then I still get huge bangs of homesickness for the place. One of those is currently on. It's scary how used you can get to your everyday life. For me, it seams somehow unreal that I ever was there. I guess this starts to be the time when the time goldens the memories, since I don't remember anymore how cold it was during the winter inside the house or what difficulties I had with some of the things over there. I only remember the sceneries and how it felt to drive back from Timaru or Christchurch and reach the Mackenzie Basin. I felt like I could breathe again.

My previous workplace
Me preparing for the night work while working in Earth and Sky.

I will always think that Lake Tekapo is one of the most beautiful places on planet Earth. It's really easy to prove: just go to check Fraser Gunn's photography. Fraser used to be my work mate and one of my best friends in Tekapo. He's amazingly talented photographer! I could watch those animations forever, the ones about the fog over Tekapo are some of my favourites.

And by the way, if you want to buy that Mackenzie splendour dvd, I still have few of them for sale for 12e each (incl. postage). I wrote the texts to the pictures. ;)
