December saw the realisation of a long-time dream to visit and tour New Zealand. We rented a car and drove from Auckland in the North Island, down to Christchurch in the South Island, over a period of two weeks.
Along the way we visited friends and relatives in Auckland, stayed in beautiful campsites, went beer tasting, and generally met an amazing bunch of people, both locals and other tourists. The scenery was incredible and New Zealanders are the warmest, most welcoming people you’re ever likely to meet.
For the record, two weeks is not enough. There is so much of the country that we didn’t get to see. Next time! :)
