I Could Get Used To This Whole Lake And Mountain Thing

Tuesday, 18 Feb 2014 | Views [305]

While there may not be much to write I must start by telling you that Wanaka and Queenstown might be my favourite places in New Zealand. I know "don't be hasty master hobbit" but they were so nice! If I live anywhere in New Zealand ever it might be either ... Read more >

Ferries, Busses, Kayaks, and Campervans

Tuesday, 11 Feb 2014 | Views [337]

I think that moving between islands in New Zealand should be done the classic way, by ferry. We didn't even look in to flights because why not take the ferry? (I'm sure there are many good reasons based on how you are planning your trip, but it worked ... Read more >

Rotorua: What Geokids' Dreams Are Made Of

Friday, 31 Jan 2014 | Views [1146]

Rotorua was my favourite place in the North Island. I can say that easily and with a big ol' grin on my face! Rotorua is a big hub for a lot of activities we did (Hobbiton & Waitomo), but is also very cool on it's own. It is located on a volcanic ... Read more >

"Glow Maggots" Doesn't Sell Well!

Thursday, 30 Jan 2014 | Views [319]

Transportation in New Zealand had been robbing us, and there were a lot of day trips and moving around we had to do so we did our research and rented our dear "Hattie". (Her license plate was HAT etc. so we called her Hattie.) Hattie is a cute little ... Read more >

Auckland, the cleanest city in the world.

Sunday, 26 Jan 2014 | Views [531]

Kia Ora! Here I am after 3 days in Auckland, and what a city it is! Auckland is very clean and very calm. I know what you're thinking, if you ask anyone from New Zealand they say that it's very busy and commercial. I guess that puts the rest of New ... Read more >
