New Zealand, Travel

My walk to work this morning – Dunedin, New Zealand

This morning I was on a mission to see the Giant Fish and Boats street art by Phlegm, which I knew with a slight detour was on my walking route to the office. This morning I walked north along Vogel Street towards Queens Gardens.

These are some of the photos I took along the way (you will have to wait for an upcoming post about the Giant Fish and Boats 🙂 ) –

The imaginatively named "Motel on Carroll" and "Shop on Carroll" (which is a really cool, retro Op Shop)

Queen Victoria painted on a building - it was hard to photograph due the low early morning sun but she looks a little zombie-like
