If someone asked you where your favourite place on earth was, would you know? Why?
I guess it is easy to say it is “home” or other such amibiguous term, but have you ever been anywhere that moves you or makes you feel uplifted?
For me, that place is Kaikoura on the East coast of the South Island of New Zealand. I first came here in 2002 for a couple of days and returned just recently. I had always wanted to come back to enjoy the coastal and mountainous views which intertwine here. It truly is gorgeous. The town itself is not sprawling or even particularly notable in itself (although it is famous for whale watching) but there is just something about Kaikoura which makes me feel like I never want to stop looking at the views or have much desire to move on. The surroundings must just have a spiritual impact.
First though, check out the view from the pub…seriously!!!
And now, check out some other views…and please note my thanks to the unknowing model in my last photo…I saw her sat there on the edge of the Pacific Ocean and thought it made a great photo. Enjoy!
