New Zealand: Franz Josef to Christchurch

Kia ora for the final time from the land of the long white cloud. How fast did those 6 weeks go?!

We are really sad that our kiwi adventure is over. Yes, we moaned about the weather  a lot but we still had the best time in beautiful NZ.

Our final week was a pretty tame one in comparison to the previous 5. And that was mainly down to good old mother nature ☔☔

After Wanaka we hit the Haast Pass to go to Franz Josef. This was yet another stunning drive.

New Zealand: Queenstown to Wanaka

Helloooo from Franz Josef 👋

We spent the last week in Queenstown and it was a pretty adrenalin fuelled one! QT is definitely one of our favourite spots in New Zealand – I’m sure everyone who has been to NZ is with us on this one. It’s SO pretty & there’s just so much to fill your days with – it’s actually a little overwhelming knowing where to start when you first arrive!

After a very chilled night celebrating my birthday we moved onto our hostel – Sir Cedric’s Southern Laughter. It was certainly a massive step down from hotel luxury but it would do the job.

Our first full day in QT was beautiful. The sun was out & we were getting temperatures of 26°. Bliss! We made the decision to do absolutely nothing. We sat at the wharf and watched the world go by 🌞

How pretty is that?!

New Zealand: Wellington to Queenstown

👋 Good morning/ afternoon/ evening/ night depending on what part of the world you’re reading this from 🌏🌍

After our epic skydive in Taupo it was time to move on. We drove a long 5 hours to Wellington. We didn’t schedule a lot of time for Wellington so all we had time for was a speedy visit to Te Papa Museum. This museum is without a doubt the best I’ve ever been to. And it’s totally free! They have an amazing WW1 exhibition focusing mainly on Gallipoli. The exhibits were fantastic – so many life like models; sounds from war; and lots of interactive parts! We loved it.
