Two instances of chance meetings have shaped my travels in the past few days.

Christchurch, Banks Peninsula and Kaikoura and some sad goodbyes.

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better… I arrived in Queenstown!

I have spent the past few days falling deeply in love…

I’ve waited a long time for this and it has been worth it! Hello South Island of New Zealand.

Wellington – the capital of New Zealand. Met a sporting legend, realised I should never play golf again.

Just a normal couple of days – watching rabbit shearing and then trekking across one of New Zealand’s most famous National Parks.

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.
