New Zealand









It takes time to explore New Zealand and it’s a lovely country! We spent two and a half month driving our rented car – in total we drove 8500 kilometres.

Our personal recommendation is to rent a car and stay at hostels in New Zealand.

Hostels are NOT only for young backpackers – at some of the hostels (and some are just wonderful!) we were the youngest!! Check out BBH.

As you can read from our stories there are so many things to see and do in New Zealand so TIME will be your scarcest resource!!
