A Word in your Ear: Undulate

A Word in Your Ear has given us Undulate, for this week. These photos of the striking hills north west of Wellington, New Zealand came to mind. I could not stop looking at them. Oh, to have this view every day!

Te Mata Peak near Hastings also has striking undulating characteristics, but yet, I am still fascinated with the Whitby -Porirua hills….

About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    You have given it all! I also can’t stop looking at these wavy hills every time I take a trip into the country!


  2. Aha, a photo from Te Mata peak. How did you manage to get up there. I just can’t drive up even though the view is fantastic but I just can’t look down. 😀 Great photos of NZ and our undulating hills. 😀


    • Thankyou. The road up there is hairy. My cousin who was originally from Hastings drove up. We had to wait for a bus to arrive until we got clearance to go down. There was a signal person at the top with a two way radio. Stunning views and so glad I went up there. NO guard rails, was a bit frightening.
