As part of my round-the-world trip, I arrived in New Zealand on January 2. My boyfriend and I drove straight from Auckland to the Coromandel Peninsula. The scenery was spectacular. We saw beautiful coastline, rolling hills, farmland, and lots of small towns along the way. We even got chased down a hill by a gigantic sheep!
The Australia portion of my round-the-world trip went by far too quickly. The overcast skies in the land down under cleared up after Christmas day and the weather was beautiful for the rest of our time in Sydney.
My round-the-world trip started on Friday morning when my boyfriend and I took the Eurostar to Paris for the weekend. We got upgraded to an amazing suite at the Prince de Galles hotel and had a great time exploring Christmas markets and farmers’ markets, spending time with a friend of mine, and eating great food.
