A different trip to the South Island of New Zealand this year. Less skiing and more sightseeing.

In October & November my girlfriend and I spent a 4,5 week holiday in New Zealand. We rented a campervan and we toured both islands. We started in Auckland and ended in Christchurch. It was great, we saw fantastic cities such as Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and Christchurch. We saw glaciers, waterfalls, fiords and vulcanoes. We saw dolphins, penquins & whales. New Zealand has it all! We had a GREAT time!
