A natural time capsule

If you roll out a world map, to the right you´ll see a narrow island on the very edge, almost falling off the side of the paper. It would be New Zealand. The country located literally at the end of the world. That is probably why this piece of land was the very last to be inhabited by human beings. Because New Zealand was left alone for 80 million years, an incredible “time capsule” with an otherworldly flora and fauna developed in peace.

Now its ecosystem is considered some of the most biodynamic in the world. But its incredible landscape has not only made the people; being a doctor, writer or a farmer, into fierce outdoor-activists, the health and freshness of its captivating nature also makes New Zealand the perfect breathing ground for the largest and most beautifully soft Merino sheep on the entire world map.

The outdoors in New Zealand is so saturated and dreamy, it is almost like many of the most fascinating sights on our diverse planet, have been squeezed and gathered into one little package the size of California. Quiet turquoise lakes, hazardous cliffs, deep fjords and active volcanoes, here there is no need for filter on your Instagram-pictures. The larger and less rainy “Southern Island” has infinite beaches all around its coastline, and shooting up right after the waves, you´ll find pointy purple mountains - some with lava on the inside and snow on the outside. Whilst behind the 500 kilometer long mountain range called The Southern Alps you´ll dip into lush and rolling green hills and farmlands dotted with excellent sheep that are especially adaptive since they deal well with both icy winters and hot summers. Farming strong Merinos, brought in from Spain about 250 years ago, is ideal here at the very edge.

The Merinos on the edge of the world, in New Zealand, are some of the largest and most handsome on the planet because this island was kept a secret for 80 million years.
