Is this place real?

My first full day in the land of the long white cloud has been one of wonder and amazement. The landscape is epic. Epic. The stuff movies are made of. 

It could be that the weather was almost perfect that helped with the epic status, but I do believe that the South island of New Zealand beats Tasmania for grandeur. And I was pretty gobsmacked by Tasmania.

FYI…. Posting might be a wee bit troublesome from here as for the second night in a row, my accommodation does not provide free wifi!!
