3 months ago I found a killer deal on plane tickets to New Zealand - $820 for 3 weeks in the primmest of prime time to be in the southern hemisphere March 1st through the 21st - Basically the end of summer.
My brother has been in the country for nearly 4 months road biking the entire north Island The plan was to meet him on the South Island, rent a van, and see as much as we possibly could in the weeks I was in town. Needless to say - we accomplished this goal with flying colors!
New Zealand is a place that I had always dreamed of going. The landscapes I had seen in films and photos as well as the experiences told by others who had traveled here made this one of the top "Must See's" in my bucket list. From the moment I arrived in the county - all of my hopes of what New Zealand would be like were far exceeded. Every day more amazing than the last.
I plan to blog about all of the places we traveled to on our road trip in more detail, but for now, because I have barely scratched the surface of reviewing the x3 - 32gb cards I filled with photos and videos, and i'm still a jet lagged brain zombie I'll just post a few of my favorite highlights in this entry.
Playing on the beach, stacking stones and taking photos all into the night.
