Lake Rotoiti, South Island, New Zealand

Ki Ora, from New Zealand.

Despite your obvious thoughts that i’m reffering to the immense cartoned fruit flavour drink from back in the day (5 Alive and Umbungo also worth a mention), Ki Ora actually means something along the lines of hello and good health in Maori … hello.

So, I’m now in NZ. Wellington to be […]
