The scene looked like one of the results you get after Googling 'magical forest' and I realised, this was one of the reasons we'd travelled to New Zealand's South Island. We'd had mixed reviews from friends about each of the two islands but once we flew into Dunedin, from Auckland, it was clear that the southern scenery was a sight not to be missed.
