Home thoughts from abroad is a new series on Travel Words featuring a single photograph that reminds me of a country visited and showing something that uniquely identifies it as being ‘abroad’.
My one and so far only trip to New Zealand was four years ago. My son and his Kiwi partner took me over to Raglan to meet the in laws. I fell in love with the incredible green landscape of the north island and the black sandy beaches which sparkled in the sun.
This is the last of the Home Thoughts from Abroad series. I hope you have enjoyed travelling with me this year to places from my past. It has been lovely to go back in time and relive some of the many places I have been fortunate to visit.

Lovely photo. I still miss NZ, hope to visit the family over there in March
I’m not surprised you miss NZ. It’s a much more gentler land than Oz.
I LOVE backlight, silhouettes….. This is great, and I shall miss this series of yours, Jude
Thanks Sue, glad you enjoyed the series.
Good Christmas, Jude?
Quiet, Sue, just as we prefer.
This is a beautiful photo. One day I hope to visit NZ. 😊
I am sure you will like it.
Thanks for that series, Jude. I enjoyed it.
Thanks for all your visits Pit. Need to think of something new for next year now!!
It has been an enjoyable series indeed, Jude.
Best wishes, Pete. x
I have enjoyed it, thanks! One of my friends has gone off to NZ for Christmas / New Year. Not jealous of course …
Of course not… 🙂
Beautiful shot Jude. I’ve really enjoyed this series.
A nice one to end on 🙂
I tried to emulate your tiny figures on the beach on boxing day but I didn’t quite manage it. I went down with that intention because I knew it would be, for once, a peopled beach. I was right – somewhere between twenty and thirty cavorters in the ocean and sand-castle builders.
Why ending the series? And do you have another one in mind? I admire your annual inventiveness.
Probably that many on our beaches at the moment! Even in winter a little sun draws them out!
I thought I had probably dug into the archives enough this year. I am planning some longer posts about places I have been to, but not written about and maybe some reblogs of older posts that didn’t get much attention at the time.
Oh Jude, what a finale! This photo is stunning. I hope you have another series of gorgeous photos planned for the future.
I have my thinking cap on 😀
Going to miss your thoughts from abroad but what a stunning one to finish with 🙂
