I was hiking San Jacinto Peak a few weeks back. I loved the lighting and the trees here so I thought I’d do a yoga tree pose!

This woman and her family own 900 acres of LAND! It was the first time someone used the “Everything the light touches, is our kingdom.” type line but instead she said “Pretty much everything you see, is ours.” I was in utter shock. They have their own fresh water waterfall. This place is so magical. The horse riding itself was not easy. lol I’m not used to going straight up crazy hills and down narrow trails. It was fun, but concerning on my part. I’m no expert when it comes to horses. 

Cathedral Cove!

I spent Christmas with these guys! We met at a hostel in Rotorua, where we stayed 4 days. Christmas Day, nothing was open except for those trusty American businesses. :P The following day was something called Boxing Day, which is their version of Black Friday. Needless to say we spent a lot of time indoors. lol We made a great Christmas dinner, and watched movies. I really came to enjoy their company. They are all from Slovenia, traveling separately. I hope to some day meet them again, hopefully in Slovenia!!!!

Horses riding in Rotorua!

On the North Island went to Crater’s of the Moon near Lake Taupo and from there went to Rotorua and saw a Maori dinner and show at the Tamaki village.  Which was amazing! 

While I was in Wellington I took a tour of the Weta Workshop!
