We were walking along the lake, chatting about how life is, bulletproof coffee and fitness goals. I look up on our right and the mountains surrounding Queenstown are looking at us. “Which mountain is that?” I ask. “That could be Ben Lomond.” My friend says. We chatted a little more about climbing and hiking but the itch of planning the empty day ahead got me. “What if I go up Ben Lomond tomorrow?” “You could definitely do that, its not that hard” “Thats why I am gonna go up for sunrise. I am leaving at 2am” I went home, slept for a few hours, my alarm went off at 2:30am. I grabbed my bag, drove to the starting point and started walking up the trail. Pitch black. Never been up there before. Not even sure that was the right way up. I walk up the wrong path a few times. I see no one but possums and rabbits, there is a light breeze that keeps me from taking my jacket off. I wonder about so many things on the way up. I am grateful for my new life in Queenstown, I am grateful because I had never hiked alone especially not for sunrise. I look on my left and there is Ben Lomond summit. It looked too far to be the right one so I quickly check it out on the map. Is it? It cant be. That looks like it’s gonna take me forever. 7:10am I am on top of Ben Lomond and I witness one of the most beautiful and perfect sunrises I have ever seen in my life. New friends is what pushed me to do it. People that do what I used to like doing. People that love life and outdoors, people that push me out of my comfort zone, always. #GoFarLost @moment . . . Special thank you to @gocontigo for the best travel mug ever made. That is how I drank hot coffee high up on a mountain for sunrise. at Ben Lomond (Otago)

Hi friends! I just wanted to take a sec to say thank you for following along and being part of our story. It’s really fun to share our travels with you, and it seriously makes us feel a lot closer to home 💛 Social media can have a pretty bad rep but it changes a whole lot when we look at it as a community. I love to be able to share in the joy of your new babies, job promotions, your travels, your music, your inspirational captions...We get to share in each other’s joys and in some sort of cyber way, be there for each other even though we’re thousands of miles apart.. pretty amazing when you think about it. Anyway, all that to say, thanks a bunch for doing life with me, and all the times you like, comment, and send us encouraging messages or suggestions for places to visit, or things to try.

#bestfriendgoals This is going to be interesting...It’s crazy how you get use to someone. I have been friend with Cizek since 6th grade. So what is it like? 13 years? We have played volleyball and been in the same team since we were 13y.o. We got really close in high school and even tho she went to UNI and I started to travel we were still there for each other. After she finished UNI we moved to London for 15 months and later to New Zealand where we lived in the car for the last year off and on. And now? She flew to the South Island and I am in the North. It’s going to be interesting as I got used to her a lot and its so weird to not to have her around, but all matter that we will always be there for each other no matter the distance. at Three Sisters and Elephant Rock

[ad - gifted] Picture the scenes. It’s 2001. A young Effy is hard at work. Crushing olives with wild abandon, she’s desperate to acquire what the adults call *wine* 🙈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As it turns out olives don’t in fact make wine but worth a try anyway right? 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yesterday had the pleasure of experiencing an @altitudetoursnz wine tour. Drank some tasty wine, made new friends and learnt so many interesting facts! 😱 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Red grapes often produce white wine. 2. If it gets too cold helicopters are sent to blow warm air over the vines to prevent frost bite. 3. Corks are one of the main ways wine makers distinguish the price of their wines. 4. Wine glasses make a huge difference to the taste of the the wine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PS - one of these is a lie. Can you work out which? (no cheating) 🍷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This experience was gifted by @purenewzealand #nzmustdo at Queenstown NZ

Saw the sun rays 🌅 while grabbing my morning coffee ☕️ and had to capture it! Even train tracks can look beautiful 😛 - I looked like a nerd for all the commuters though 📷 🤓 at Upper Hutt, New Zealand

Throwback to our #newzealandtrip. On the way to #milfordsound we had to stop and take pictures of this valley. Didn’t know the name but found out that it is probably called #claffeyvalley. Isn’t it beautiful how the clouds are sinking into the #lushvalley with only the #windingroad cutting through it? Couldn’t decide which pic to post, with me in the pic or without. Swipe to see the other unmanned version 😉. Which one do you prefer? . . . #newzealandlove #discovermilfordsound #milfordsoundtrack #newzealandsouthisland #unlimitednewzealand #newzealandroadtrip #seaofclouds #visitnewzealand #meinneuseeland #neuseelandliebe #neuseelandreise #neuseelandsüdinsel #doctorsontour #doctorsofinstagram #asiantraveler #naturalwonder at New Zealand
