Memories of 2016 in Photographs

posted in: Blog | 0

My travel journey of 2016 has been entirely divided into two sections.

 

The first section is the continuation of my stay in New Zealand which has been ended in the month of May. During that time, I was traveling to both the North & South island rigorously. Almost every weekend & holidays either I was driving through the scenic route or doing hikes & camping in my tent in the lap of NZ wilderness to explore the country and its natural beauty.

 

The second section is from June to till the end of the year where as usual I made couple of short and long trips in my motherland. I have decided not to go for any Tiger safari this year, rather spend the entire time to travel those places where I have not been before or explored very less.

 

Here is a collection of couple of images from those journeys. Hope 2017 will also be a crazy ride for me.

 

The Moeraki Boulders at the South Island of New Zealand near Otago. They are geological marvels of spherical shape, exposed by erosion of sedimentary rocks laid down from 65 million years ago.

Australasian Gannet found only in coastal region on New Zealand, Australia and Tasmania. Most of the time they breed with the same partner over the consecutive seasons.
