Crikey! This is the 500th post on this blog thing. It seems like a milestone worth a bit of reflection. This all started back in May 2008 as something to record our motorhome adventures for family and friends to see where we were and what we were up to. That has remained the theme, with a few rants and side-tracks creeping in now and then. Along the way it has become a record of some of the many wonderful, lovely, beautiful, interesting parts of New Zealand that we have been lucky to visit and explore.
There’s 1,044 photos posted so far. Given how photos were not part of early posts, they have become a bigger part. If pictures are worth a thousand words, just imagine how much blather you have been spared 🙂
It has always intrigued me that the most viewed post is one about an international artist’s exhibition in Christchurch in October 2010. Photos of Ron Mueck’s extraordinary sculptures remain the most viewed out of everything. Which is nice because they are a series I am proud of.
A pictorial record of a New Zealand outdoor adventure is not far behind in number of views. Our August 2010 walk to Sawcut Gorge in Marlborough is our other most-viewed story.
It’s been fun sharing all sorts of amazing and surprising corners of New Zealand. And thanks for the support and encouragement.
