It’s all about the South…

A few years ago we went on a trip with our best friend to New Zealand’s south Island. We hired a camper van for a few days and also caught a ride on the popular hop-on, hop-off buses.Two things come to mind when you think of NZ (especially the south Island) – adventure and beauty. Here is our photo diary of one of the best trips we have had. It may be close to home but it was filled with fun and laughter the whole time!
Beauty
New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. There are so many mountains, wineries, forests, glaciers, fiords, lakes and more. The best way to grasp the beauty is by driving around and stopping wherever you can to take in the views surrounding. Don’t rush the trip!

Adventure
The south island is the place to be if you are an adrenaline junkie but not all adventure has to be fast paced. In NZ you can climb a glacier, pan for gold, climb a mountain, ski and so much more.
