It’s impossible to escape conversations about Lord of the Rings when talking about New Zealand. Although the mention of the series can cause kiwi’s to roll their eyes, the movie franchise is by far the best look the vast majority of people have been given into the country. Because of this it’s easy to think of New Zealand as a mountainous and rocky landscape with giant snowy peaks and sparkling lakes. This is true, but not for all of the country. Dunedin is a city on a hill overlooking a beautiful bay and peninsula. Take a quick drive outside of Dunedin and you’ll find grassy hills covered in sheep for miles. This is the New Zealand that I know best.
This week I was stuck finishing schoolwork and Tra took a short trip with our Dutch friend Luuk to visit Ross Creek Reservoir. Before he left I made sure he grabbed the camera so he could snap some photos along the way. The park is 30 minute walk from our flat but for some reason we’ve never visited it.
