After the mouth-watering visit to Springfield’s giant donut, our next stop was the beautiful (almost beyond belief) Lake Pearson. Surrounded by winding trees that gently dip their limbs into the water, Pearson truly is a treat for the eyes. I couldn’t resist climbing up into the branches with my trusty Instax Mini Selfie in hand, but hopped down quick-smart after a whopping big breeze almost decided to do it for me!

If you can remember way back to January, one of my goals was to branch out and travel more. I grew up in South-East Asia and despite being a New Zealander, haven’t seen too much of my birth country. Not-so-slowly and certainly surely I am ticking more and more places off my list – and I am ridiculously happy about it! My wonderful boyfriend, Barnaby has seen most of New Zealand, so I’m eagerly awaiting the day I can surprise him with somewhere new. Perhaps that should be my next goal?

Until then, I’ll just be lounging in front of the most beautiful lake ever; complete with it’s very own snow-covered mountainous surroundings.

Welcome to the town of Springfield (yes, really!) where the giant donut statue is hugely appropriate and widely appreciated! I have wanted to visit this spot for years – and seeing as how it’s not even an hours drive from Christchurch, we decided to pay a visit! It really was a fleeting trip – and we only managed these three photos (I can see other bloggers shaking their heads at me right now!) Wait till you see the next spot on our trip, though. Seriously, it will take your breath away!

What can I say? I guess donut dreams really do come true.. ♥
