New Zealand Adventure!

New Zealand 2014
Wow, what a two weeks my family and I have had. We just travelled over 2,000km around the south island of New Zealand in a motorhome.
I would highly recommend it!
A terrific experience for my six and eight year old children. We stayed in campgrounds where they met German, Spanish, American, English and who knows how many other nationality tourists. Of course there were a few token aussies on our travels.
New Zealand is so beautiful and majestic. The scenery is breathtaking and rugged.

 Milford Sound (above) manages to dwarf anything that passes by. The enormity of the cliffs we sailed past left my neck hurting from looking upwards!

Snow capped mountains like this made the views seem like a movie backdrop. We didn't see any hobbits though.

Scenic views like this would rival some of the best in the world.

Queenstown from above. A terrific place to go paragliding - an amazing experience I can now tick off the bucket list!

Mirror images like this were everywhere.

It was all building up to the helicopter ride to land on the glacier. 3 days and 5 attempts later ... we made it. It was absolutely worth the wait!

This was such a fantastic trip we had been planning for quite some time. Hmmm where to next? Any suggestions?!?!


  1. The south island was our favorite. We really considered staying there. Beautiful pictures. They made me want to go back.

    1. We will go back and do the North Island one day. But the south certainly was magnificent!

  2. It looks like such a unique and beautiful place. I'm hoping to get there one day! And great photos!
