Two continents and one island this week.

A scene from Day  2 of our

Rocky Mountaineer Train trip

to Vancouver, June 2018.

Whistler ski slopes, Canada, June 2018



Across the Pacific Ocean

and much closer to home is

New Zealannd’s…

Mount Ruapehu,

which is an active volcano

in Tongariro National Park.

New Zealand’s North Island’s major ski resorts

and only glaciers are too be found on Mt Ruapehu.

Across the Indian Ocean is the Mt Sheba Resort.

And a not too long drive from Mt Sheba

is an area known as God’s Window. 

Stunning views



Sausage Tree Safari Camp…

…we were able to admire the Drakensberg Mountains

and enjoy a drink  or meal while doing so.

Some images from New Zealand

The first two probably fit….

the photographic sense of vanishing more than the last. 

Readers can judge.  🙂

Finally, I think this is

Mount Ruapehu

vanishing into the clouds in

New Zealand’s

Tongariro National Park.







Road tripping in New Zealand this week…

between Taupo and Tongariro National Park…

which is situated at the south-eastern end of Lake Taupo.

The main thing we enjoyed about our road trip was that we

could go when we wanted to go…


and if there was no traffic about

pause on a bridge for shots like this.





A repost from yesterday.

The view through our Matamata BnB window.

We thought it looked like a work of art then

and others made similar comments.

This shot of New Zealand’s

Mount Ruapehu in

the Tongariro National Park,

South of Taupo,

was also favourably received on Facebook.
