While I’m fortunate that my travels covering motorsports takes me around the world, I mostly go to the same places year after year, which can get a bit dull.
For 2017, I’m trying to shake that up that by visiting some new locations, off the beaten path from the racing world, and New Zealand was at the top of the list.
Following last weekend’s Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour, I hopped across the Tasman Sea to Queenstown, where I explored Fiordland National Park, New Zealand’s largest national park, including a trip to Milford Sound, by bus and plane.
A day in Queenstown was followed up by a road trip to Christchurch, via Mt. Cook, the country’s highest mountain, and a day off in Christchurch, which has continued its rebuild since the devastating series of earthquakes that destroyed the city center some six years ago.
With some of the most breathtaking views, this was arguably one of my most epic sightseeing trips yet.
Check out some of my favorite photos. All are taken on the FujiFilm X-Pro2, either with the Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS or Fujinon XF 16-55/2.8 R LM WR lenses.
