Hello from New Zealand! We are here on the South Island for a 9-day self-drive adventure, and are having a great time so far. The weather has been beautiful by most human standards, although it is very apparent that we have become acclimatized to the warm/hot, Australian weather. I’ve definitely been a bit chilly!
It’s been four days since we’ve arrived home from New Zealand. We have a ‘bucket list’ of sorts for the things we want to do while living here in Australia, and visiting NZ has always been at the top.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time touring around the South Island. We would have loved to see the North as well, but with only 9 days, we simply couldn’t do it all. We also couldn’t participate in a lot of adventure activities as per the New Zealand travel norm. Just too difficult with a one year old! Instead, we clocked many hours in the car and several more hiking and touring around by foot; we saw so much in just over a week.
