I have arrived in New Zealand, explored Auckland, got stunk out in Rotorua and almost drown white water rafting!

Sad times as I say goodbye to the numerous people, the car, Australia and the two best travelling companions ever.

Sailing around the gorgeous Whitsunday Islands – an incredible experience.

Visiting the world’s biggest sand island and meeting a great group of people (this blog involves a lot of rainfall).

Pub crawls, art galleries, monsoons and zoos – what a busy few days!

Back to Sydney again and then to Newcastle (the one in Australia not England).

Backpacking Canberra
