The unofficial pictorial biography of New Zealand
So glad you’re here, because we’re going on a tour of New Zealand. Not quite the amazing scenery, but rather a trip on fire trucks, in yoga classes, cafes, bakeries, construction sites, restaurants. And yes, sheep.
Some part of this biography will be through a series of photo “albums”. Others will be with lavish cartoon diaries (check out the nav bar on the right).
To open the album, just click on an image, and boof—you’re in a whole new world. Try it!
P.S. The cartoon diaries and the photo albums get updated on a fairly regular basis. If you want to peek into New Zealand often, yes, there is a way to get updates.
Take your time and click through some of the albums. At the bottom of each album, you’ll find a link to subscribe and a zany newsletter will show up on a monthly basis.
