Looking back at my most favourite travel photographs that I took in the year 2013. I ventured across the globe to gorgeous New Zealand in the spring and awesome Chicago in the fall. My very favourite part of New Zealand are the mountains, lakes, and ocean. As for Chicago, it’s the architectural boat tour. Basically my favourite memories usually include water if it was present.

One of my very favourites. I warmed up on this chilly day in Queenstown inside a cute cafe with amazing hot chocolate and fresh buttery biscuits and scones.

Lovely photos from a year to remember.
I LOVE New Zealand, too :)
Thanks, Marianne :) Can’t wait to go back.
Obviously, the seal pups are my favourite :-) cute wins hands down.
Those seal pups were super cute! Thanks :)
Lovely. Thanks for sharing. Reminds me how much I miss Queenstown – a truly magical spot. You really need to be there in summer – and see the Remarkables against a clear late evening sky!
Thank you, I’m very glad you like the photos. I intend to go back in the summer months most definitely!
Beautiful! Makes me want to take a trip to New Zealand.
Thanks! You should absolutely have New Zealand added to your list.
I must say New Zealand has a beautiful scenary, one of the most. May I join you when you’re going back :)
One of the most beautiful scenery is right!
WOW….these are amazing shots….
Beautiful! Brings back fond memories! Here’s to lots more amazing photos in 2014!
Thanks so much, Linda!
Stunning photos! Although I’m in a big hurry to leave NZ, at the moment, and see the rest of the world in detail, it’s always so lovely to see home through the eyes of someone.
Thank you so much! I can’t wait to go back to NZ!
Love the photos. The seal pup, the roses, the ocean, the mountains! It makes me want to revisit New Zealand.
Thanks so much! I must revisit too :)
I’ve yet to step foot there but it is on my ever growing list. Surfing is great there too!
I’m glad it’s on your list! So incredible.
Your photos are beautiful and I’m loving your blog!
Why thank you very much!
Great photos. Thanks for sharing!
I love seeing all your gorgeous pics and what fun adventures. I especially like the reflection on Lake Matheson!
Thanks very much! That Lake Matheson reflection photo is framed on a canvas painting at home now :)
