My relative and I arrived at our first hotel at Paihia, Bay of Islands, in the dark. I spent two days in flights to get to New Zealand. I arrived in the morning, met up with my fairy-godmother-slash-relative and we traveled all day long. We were both exhausted and in awe of the beauty we already saw.
Little did we expect to move the curtains covering our balcony and discover a full moon shinning bright in the sky, reflecting in the water.
At that moment, I wished I knew how to paint. I wished the moment would never end. No photograph could ever do it justice, therefore kindly treat this photo as a teaser. You must see it for yourself to truly understand. Doesn’t it look like a nightly sun?
And just wait to see how it looked in daylight!
New Zealand Moment of the Week is my way of re-living the unexpected fairytale journey that made me a world traveler – and sharing it with you. Every Thursday on All Colores, you will find one more moment of joy.
