First of all I wish you all a merry Christmas and hope you get to spend it with your loved ones! Now this isn't a stereotypical Christmas look and setting as last year, but it matches my lack of Christmas mood perfectly. Due to the 20+ degrees and sunshine here in Wellington the Christmas spirit coulnd't creep up on me. On the upside it is relieving not to worry about presents since Moritz and I had decided not to gift anything this year - which I am perfectly comfortable with. Being here in New Zealand with my brother is already amazing enough!

On a sunny day we took out to Sumner, Christchurch to shoot those photos. This area really reminded me of Malibu, California with it's long beaches and the surfer vibe. When we first arrived in Christchurch we were a bit shocked since the whole city is still a massive construction site after the earthquake in February 2011. But our impression quickly changed after a walk through the city with our cousin, who happens to be an engineer, and explained all the exiting new houses, parks and shops that would follow. It would be really exiting to return to Christchurch in 10 to 15 years to see the progress. Maybe the same thing applies as to volcanic eruptions; from ashes arises new life!
