We had the most amazing vacation in New Zealand some years ago. Ever! We LOVE to travel, and are lucky enough to have been to some places already, but this one was just THE ONE! And somehow we knew it right from the start... We knew that one day we will come back...
So how come we fell in love so much?
The nature is just fascinating, should you be a beach bum, a lake lover or a mountain hiker. Or all of the above. A stunning view and perfect colors wherever you look. (And sheep. Cute white sheep.) It simply takes your breath away. It's literally like in the Lord of the Rings. Or even better. (Surprise surprise, I became a fan after our visit to Mount Doom :D ) Perfect place for nature and outdoor lovers. Tons of opportunities if you love water sports. Yummy fresh food, tasty fruits and vegetables, and ohh those special green-lipped mussels. Nice wine! Great climate. Very special, extremely well protected flora and fauna. A LOT of space. The relaxed, jandal aka Kiwi flip-flop lifestyle. Perfect work-life balance. Practical and customer friendly environment. Enjoyment of life. And to top all that, the people. The Kiwis, the people from New Zealand, are super friendly and laid-back. They tend to say with their special Kiwi accent: "It's such a lovely country, isn't it?" :) Well, I could keep on with this list for a long long time...
So yes, the unique chill and atmosphere of NZ impressed us. It could be great to live here, we thought... Ever since we got back to Europe, to our fast and full of happenings big city life - and yes, I have to admit that I loved this lifestyle till a certain point, as I am definitely a Big City Girl :) - we kept secretly longing for the blissful, yet peaceful feeling this place in the other end of the world has left in our hearts. Longing for this beautiful nature to surround us. To make a dream come true and live by the most amazing beaches of the world. On a (quite a big, but still...) island :)
I have been thinking of creating this website ever since. First, just to share the pictures I took during the holidays. Those fascinating memories and enriching experience. Then more and more ideas popped up, especially once we decided we are making the big move. But THE time was never appropriate... at least I thought so... My perfectionist self always found a barrier, a little detail - I am not a professional photographer to publish my photos. I am not an IT expert to build a page. I am not a travel blogger to share my stories. Blabla. So I always put it off the agenda. Sounds familiar?
However, the feeling has grown stronger and stronger day by day, I got more and more convinced that I don't have to be an expert to start it, and YES, finally I cleared out the way and here we are now! :) BinspiratioNZ is up and running! A BIG special thanks to all my friends and family who encouraged me and motivated me to make this happen! I am excited, and can't wait to share my moments of inspiration from the most beautiful place in the world. Let's Love & Live New Zealand. I am so happy you come along! :) ENJOY :)
