New Zealand - South Island Part 3

Sunday, 16 Apr 2017 | Views [678]

THE FOOD I won’t say it’s quite the same as Europe, but Kiwis eat out a lot. They probably have more cafés per square km than Alaska has coffee shops. New Zealand also has a much greater Asian influence than I realized before our ... Read more >

Saturday, 15 Apr 2017 | Views [515]

Let's begin in Phoenix, AZ. We left late to pick up the rental car (I don't actually know how to be on time for anything. Ever.) and then had a fun time explaining to the girls at the counter that yes, I actually did need the booster seat that we requested ... Read more >
