What a great find - a free camper van for ten days to adventure between Auckland and Christchurch. What could possibly go wrong? Well ...
Having travelled eastwards from the west coast to Arthur's Pass Village in February, we subsequently journeyed westwards with friends in May.
From the 7th to 21st May, we hung around Christchurch with Jamie and visited a number of nearby attractions.
At the end of April we headed to Lake Tekapo, expecting to be blown away by its beauty. Did it live up to our expectations?
After our incredible experience on the Hooker Valley Walk, we explored Mount Cook Village and the Tasman Glacier. How would they compare?
Waiting for a clear weather window to visit Mount Cook in April, we visited the Waitaki Hydro Power Scheme, Lake Ohau, and the Clay Cliffs.
Our itinerary often alters due to fascinating things we find along the way. Oamaru, Duntroon & The Vanished World were well worth seeing.
Sharing photographs, videos and stories of our precious time in April 2021 with yellow-eyed penguins and the marvellous Moeraki boulders.
After leaving Dunedin, we travelled slowly west and north to visit St Bathans. There were was so much to see it took our breath away.
We're not all that comfortable in big cities, but Dunedin managed to impress us regardless. Mostly the outstanding Otago Peninsula.

The second of three posts sharing our April 2021 experiences in the stunning Catlins in the SE corner of NZ's South Island.
At the end of March we travelled to Gabriel's Gulley where the first NZ Gold Rush began. There were amazing sights on the way & while there.
Wanting to experience the autumn colours in Arrowtown, we headed back north and took in Kingston and Queenstown too. All in one day!
We spent almost a week meandering between Monkey Island and Clifden Suspension Bridge last month. There were so many treasures to relish.
After our wonderful week on Stewart Island, we slowed down somewhat to catch our breath. We found many delightful things at Bluff & Colac Bay.
Continuing our journeys south last month, we take you on a historic trip to old gold mining towns, and the southernmost city in the world.
Two weeks ago we left the West Coast and travelled through Haast Pass. Featuring walks, waterfalls, glacial pools, a lake and friends.
We were keen to see Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers, as well as Lake Matheson. All were amazing in their own ways, despite some challenges ...
Following a dreary outlook at Greymouth, we enjoyed a brief stay at Blackball before arriving at the astoundingly beatific Lake Brunner.
