Dream Away: New Zealand

Guest post: Jon, at inredningsvis.se

I have the honour today of giving you all a sample of my home country, New Zealand. I’ve been living in Scandinavia for 10 years now and only been back in NZ once since I moved here. It might be time for a trip back soon, as home-sickness is pretty strong right now at the end of Winter. It is of course Summer in New Zealand right now, with temperatures around 25C – 30C. Hope you like the pictures :)
