the farm, new zealand:

The final destination of our trip was Andrew's family farm, located just out of Dunedin. Andrew grew up here and all the family were travelling to Dunedin for Christmas. We were looking forward to spending precious time with family and relaxing (well as much as could between sprucing up and painting a little cabin! A post on that next week!).

The farm is BEAUTIFUL, and such a novelty for a city-girl like me. It is the best of both worlds being located right by the sea, then climbing up a hill, with views up and down the east coast and out to the Pacific Ocean - yet less then half an hour from Dunedin's CBD. 

It's always fun walking around and exploring, getting up close to the horses and going down to the creek, which is well hidden under dense trees, revealing a mini-rainforest full of ferns and mossy logs. It's one of my favourite places to chill. I didn't realise either, that I would be in for a little treat. Three kittens had been discovered before we arrived and were in their absolute element, being around 8-10 weeks old when we arrived. Being a massive cat-lover, I was in heaven!

I always love trying to capture the details of the farm whilst walking around. There's always something interesting happening whether it be the landscape and changing elements (Dunedin is way down south and is very much a four-seasons-in-one day kind of place) or the intricate details of life on the farm.


Next: a trip down to the bottom of New Zealand to visit the Catlins.
