First day of Freedom

I swear I haven't edited any of those photos! The colours and the lighting are all natural!!!

As I've posted in a previous post my boyfriend flew 34 hours just to be with me here in New Zealand (<3) and we went on a trip around the south island. We had some issues with my family, so we both were more than relieved to finally leave everything behind and spend almost three weeks on a bus tour. It was just AMAZING!!!
These are photos of our first day on tour, taken at Mount Cook, where some scenes of the Lord of the Rings movies were shot. It was just stunning! The feeling of total freedom overwhelmed both of us; the endless space and massive mountains, the intense colour of the sky and the plain colours of the grass and the rocks; we felt like we'd own the world.
And, as mentioned earlier, I'm SO glad my camera could captivate a little bit of the magical atmosphere we could experience. Aww, I'm missing it so much just by looking at the photos.

And if you guys ever want to travel in New Zealand or Asia, consider travelling with Stray. I promise you'll meet interesting and fun people on the bus and the drivers have definitely done their homework and will make your journey unforgettable!
