Picton, New Zealand was a little intermission from Christchurch to Wellington. Most visitors are Interislander passengers to/from Wellington or on the way to Marlborough Sounds. You can see the glimpse of the extensive sea-drowned valleys from the park right near the coast. Though, Picton is a great place to chill out for few days. I was there for only one and a half day, but I enjoyed the town museum, the view of sea valleys and ice cream. Personal note: I donated 5,000 won (about 5USD) at the museum for their world money collection. At that time, Korea changed the currency design right before I left for the backpacking trip. Wonder if they remember me?

I miss NZ! Glad you enjoyed a little slice of it 🙂
Me too. I miss the beautiful country!
I unexpectedly spent a night in Picton years ago- the Interislander got delayed so we missed our bus to Nelson. So wasn’t a HUGE fan of the place as one tends to not be when you’re involuntarily staying there, but I remember it was not all to dissimilar to the town my family goes to in New Hampshire in summer.
Ah, I’m homesick now!
Amazing tranquility, I really need some sort of stress-free vacation and New Zealand seems like the right place for this, thanks for sharing those gorgeous photos!
Beautiful photos! Makes me wanna love NZ even if I haven’t been there yet. 😀
