Spectacular views from Mount John Observatory. We went back that night to view the stars and planets from their giant telescopes. One place I’d love to go back to one day #mountjohnobservatory#tekapo#newzealand
I recently read this survey on travelling which said - about 75% of executives believe travel is important to prevent burnout! 🤯🤯🤯
And we couldn’t agree more. We started travelling to get away from our hectic work schedules, have time to ourselves and disconnect from our at-times chaotic life. Post our vacations, we would come back refreshed and charged up to go through the daily grind again. Soon enough we developed a love for travelling and @whitecollartravellers was born. We have become travel geeks now and consciously plan our travel whenever we get the opportunity.
The more we travel to different places and more people we meet – we realized that ANYONE CAN TRAVEL ! You don’t have to fly half-way around the world to travel, it could be exploring a nearby village, town or city or the country next door. It is all about breaking your routine, finding some adventure and just experiencing something new!
You just need to try it once! Sure, it does take a conscious effort, you need to save up and plan – but the reward is really worth it. Apart from recharging you, it also helps in broadening your perspective in many ways. For us, travelling is discovering new cultures, exploring new cities, meeting new people and making lifetime memories.

We're proud to say that Isolation Bay truly is a private sanctuary on the shores of Lake Tekapo.
Sometimes you need to escape from city life and spend some time getting close to nature, and our little haven is perfect for that. With no neighbours in sight and only the sound of birds chirping and the waves lapping against the shore you'll find it hard not to relax.

Next up in our series of extinct native NZ birds is the beloved Huia. We wish this glorious bird still existed! You can get a glimpse of an animated one in the legendary film Hunt For The Wilderpeople.
The following info is from NZ Birds Online: The iconic huia was the largest of the five New Zealand wattlebird species. It was a striking large songbird, mainly black with long white-tipped tail feathers. Female and male huia had dramatically different bill sizes and shapes; this was the most extreme sexual bill dimorphism of any bird species. A fleshy orange wattle hung at the base of each side of the bill, and was often held pressed under the chin. Maori named the bird after its loud distress call, described as "a smooth, unslurred whistle rendered as uia, uia, uia or where are you?" The last accepted sighting was in 1907, but it is likely that a few huia persisted into the 1920s.
