SCENE | The North Island of New Zealand


Last month I was lucky enough to make it down to New Zealand, one of the last land masses to be discovered by humans and thus one of the most unspoiled places I've ever laid eyes on. I wrote a little essay for Huckberry Journal about the pure wildness of The Northland, about four hours north of Auckland. And while New Zealand is known for its natural beauty, the city life is nothing to sneeze at either. I fell in love with the country's capital city and wrote up my idea of a perfect day in Wellington for Vogue.com (thanks for all your suggestions on that!), which hopefully captured a slice of the incredible art, fashion, coffee and food scenes on offer. In conclusion: New Zealand is the best country ever.

I've been so longing to go to New Zealand to explore the country and to visit friends who live in Dunedin... I love your photographs and cannot wait to read your essays!

New Zealand is amazing - went there in 2011 and can't wait to return. The only country that can beat it? My temporary home: Nepal. Hard to match the Himalayas :)

Gorgeous pictures. Did you get any wool sweaters while you were there? Do they have a classic NZ knit?
