Can you spot what makes this photo extra special? It ain't the view πŸ¦† there is a pair of whio in the water, or New Zealand's blue duck. They are INCREDIBLY rare and endangered, but seeing them in their natural environment like this makes me so happy! Hopefully one day all of New Zealand's amazing landscapes will have their native birds back in them like this ❀ I've been sharing my experiences with whio and why they are special on my Instagram Story and how you can win the chance to be a whio ranger yourself. Watch before it's gone 😍 docgovtnz whioforever

Books make me happy. Used, rare and well-loved books make me really happy. Used, rare and well-loved books all about Antarctica, polar expeditions, old travel and adventures, make me so ridiculously happy I can barely articulate my joy πŸ“š therefore, Adventure Books in Oamaru is my new favorite place booknerd oldbooksmell

Three years ago, I packed everything I owned in my red old shitty Volkswagen Polo and moved to Wanaka from Wellington. Cheers the longest I've spent in one spot in a long time ❀ so much has happened and changed in those three years, and Wanaka is definitely not the same anymore, but I still love it to pieces, and no matter where I travel around the world, I'm always so happy to come home again. My heart soars every time I drive back into town after being away, and I get that first view of the lake and mountains. It never gets old. So grateful for so many amazing friends here, endless adventures and crazy memories, and of course, that beautiful nature. Here's to at least another 3 years in this magical little town at the bottom of the world leftmyheartinwanaka homesweethome
