Taking the scenic route back home
And the winner is ... @antoniomontemayor
We loved watching Antonio's adventures around New Zealand with his daughter this summer, so he's scored $1,000 GrabOne credit to spend on making even more memories together. Congratulations!
Thanks to everyone who showed us how they’ve been grabbing life. Enjoy the rest of your summer! ☀️
Sekitar tahun 1950, ada yang menjatuhkan benih untuk bunga-bunga indah ini di sisi jalan raya. Hampir tujuh puluh tahun kemudian, Danau Tekapo di Pulau Selatan, Selandia Baru sekarang dikelilingi oleh tanaman-tanaman eksotis berwarna pink dan ungu yang dinamakan Russell Lupin. Mereka hanya berbunga di musim panas ketika benih mereka 'meledak' karena panasnya cuaca dan menyebarkan bunga bunga indah ini ke seluruh wilayahnya.
In the 1950s someone dropped some seeds for these beautiful flowers on the side of the highway. Almost seventy years later, Lake Tekapo in the South Island of New Zealand is now surrounded by these exotic tall pink and purple plants, named Russell Lupin. They only flower in the summer when their seed pods explode due to the heat spreading the flowers all across the region. #NZMantul #NewZealand #NZMustDo #travel #flowers #JalanJalan
Exploring the Sahara, but in New Zealand 😛

Walking amongst giants!
The giant pinnacles made even Tom feel small, and he's 2 meters tall! They also made him jump around like a kid from excitement as this is one of the locations where they shot the Lord of the Rings movies, and he's a big fan.
I, on the other hand, fell asleep halfway through the first movie and never really got the whole hype about LOTR. I'm definitely not a fan, but the pinnacles are impressive nonetheless!
How do you feel about LOTR? Big time fan or not really your thing?
Who's up for a picnic? 😁🌲
So rewarding to see the Hangar Round Cafe in Motueka thriving! We helped our client Nelson Tasman Air develop and launch the concept last year. This summer we appointed a new operator who has fallen in love with the buzz at the airport - scenic flights, aviation training and skydiving happening all around the cafe. It's the perfect spot to sit back, enjoy a Flight Coffee & witness the action. She also makes a wicked grilled cheese sandwich!
WOW! How did Friday come around so quickly? We're just dropping in to check how you're all enjoying our new series? 😎 😎 😎

Exploring the coast line from Paekakariki down to Pukerua Bay.
When asking a local how to pronounce ‘Paekakariki’? He said...
“Pae-kaka-riki, it’s where all the boys go ‘cause the girls get freaky” 💃🏼
No feriado do Ano Novo, eu e Rodrigo fomos até Cape Reinga que é no extremo norte do país, mas até chegarmos lá fizemos três paradas e a primeira foi essa maravilhosa Mermaid Pools, que fica em Matapouri, há mais ou menos 189km de distância de Auckland, vou colocar nos destaques dos Stories os vídeos que fizemos lá!! 🧜🏻♀️💦
The kea is a species of large parrot in the family Nestoridae, found in the forested and alpine regions of the South Island of New Zealand. About 48 cm (19 in) long, it is mostly olive-green with a brilliant orange under its wings and has a large, narrow, curved, grey-brown upper beak. The kea is the world's only alpine parrot. Its omnivorous diet includes carrion,but consists mainly of roots, leaves, berries, nectar, and insects. Now uncommon, the kea was once killed for bounty due to concerns by the sheep-farming community that it attacked livestock, especially sheep.In 1986, it received full protection under the Wildlife Act.🙏

I can’t believe it’s already been over a year since our life was exploring beautiful New Zealand landscape like this. This morning in the fjords was one of our last living on the other side of the world. We camped in the fjords and woke up to this pristine, perfect-for-paddling, blue-sky day. 🚣🏼♀️🚣🏻♂️🙌☀️In typical New Zealand fashion, the next morning was the opposite—a torrential downpour with winds strong enough to form mini-tornados over the water. 🌬🌪🇦🇺It was doubtful (must be why it’s named as such) we’d make it back without help, but we just kept paddling until we made it to civilization! #KiwiKP #NZlife #doubtfulsound #latergram
Collect moments. Not things.
This was taken on our way to Milford Sound, NZ. (8th wonders of the world). It was such a beautiful dawn to witness amongst the highest mountains and wildernesses.... Also swipe right for the proof 😊 (video clip)
The one of the most challenging and rewarding thing I ever done. Woke up at 2am and hiked #royspeak
for 6 hours for this view. Totally worth it. 🏔 🐑🌿 Also swipe right for the video 😊 • Return track: 16km(5-6hr) Elevation of 1.5km
• Location: Wanaka, South Island, NZ
• Difficultly: Medium 🤪
Bloom like Lupins🎀 .
Tip:The best time to see lupins in South Island, NZ is between Nov - Jan
Ending our 11 days road trip in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand at the Pelorus river near Nelson region. This was the river where some of scenes of the hobbit movie were shot. What a dip and way to finish off the trip 💦
Feeling so lucky to see the beauty of nature and also I learnt that beautiful things in life are certainly free...our souls are blessed & refreshed 🍃
