28 March 2018: Wednesday. Our time in Kaikoura really came to a climax on Friday but before we reached the place itself, I HAVE to share with you this picture of sheep crossing the road. I was telling Flo at the beginning of our trip how much I'd love for our camper van to be … Continue reading New Zealand: Kaikoura & Christchurch.
26 March 2018: Monday. A morning start with PBBanana in and on pita. Flo was tickled at the look of my breakfast and had to take a photo. I realise this is a better way of having peanut butter and bananas instead of on toast because after warming the pita up, you can stuff it … Continue reading New Zealand: Akaroa & Hanmer Springs.
24 March 2018: Saturday. First thing in the morning, Flo and I left Kawarau Bridge to go straight to Creeksyde Holiday Park located in Queenstown itself. It's well known for being the greenest park and for Flo and I, it was the most expensive campsite we spent on as well. That being said, facilities were extremely … Continue reading New Zealand: Queenstown & Lake Pukaki.
22 March 2018: Thursday. This was possibly our second coldest day throughout our New Zealand trip and after a hot coffee, we went for a 3-hour return trek along the Kepler Track, from the control gate to Bord's Bay. It was one of my favourite tracks this trip - not that we went to very … Continue reading New Zealand: Te Anau & Milford Sound
20 March 2018: Tuesday. We awoke to a grim day with the clouds hanging low, wrapping themselves close to the mountain tops. Looking out from our camper van window, I could almost imagine Nessie emerging from the depths of the lake's calm waters. Even with the grey skies, the scene we woke up to still … Continue reading New Zealand: Franz Josef & Wanaka
18 March 2018: Sunday. We took it easy Sunday morning and only after lunch did we decide to tackle the Punakaiki-Pororari Loop. We wanted to take a walk through the rainforest towards the Pororari River Track junction, then carry on along the Inland Pack Track before following the Pororari River Track down river. However, owing … Continue reading New Zealand: Punakaiki & Hokitika
17 March 2018: Saturday. So we reached the Westport campsite around 9pm when it was well after dark. The roads as with most roads out of the towns/cities had no street lamps but there were reflective poles on the sides and reflectors in between the lanes so it was not a bad drive. Flo's quite … Continue reading New Zealand: Punakaiki ❤
14 March 2018: Wednesday. On this day, we kicked off from Picton and made towards Marlborough Sounds. We were planning to hike up to Onahau Lookout but on the way, an accidental wrong turn ended up leading us to this quaint B&B that also had a cosy coffee shop with it. It sat right by … Continue reading New Zealand: South Island: Marlborough Sounds & Marahau.
