Back in 2009, I was lucky enough to be invited on a road trip across New Zealand’s south island (all in the name of work, of course).
To be honest, I’d never been particularly fussed by New Zealand. Christchurch is only a four hour hop across the Tasman from Sydney and I figured I’d make it there someday, but in the meantime? Plenty of other corners of the globe to explore.
Turns out I should have been paying attention to all those 100% Pure New Zealand advertisements they always play in Australian cinemas before the movie starts.
Because New Zealand? Is pretty spectacular.
I’ve got plans to go back in December, and this time I’m taking two friends and everything we need to make living in a campervan comfortable. Because why wait?
