Today I’m excited to share my New Zealand trip video featuring 9 days on the South Island and Wellington. I shot a lot of footage while I was traveling, and I’ve distilled it down to a 2-minute version of the highlights. I hope you enjoy it!
The most important thing I’ve learned on my travels is the necessity of being flexible. That lesson has paid off today, as I’ve suddenly had to cancel my plans to travel from Brisbane to the Great Barrier Reef. My boyfriend has to fly back to London, and I’ve found myself with 9 days on my own before my flight home. I could go with him, but I can’t help wanting to stay in the Antipodes. I spend a few hours coming up with a plan, and the result is a 9-day New Zealand itinerary without driving.
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!
