    Each and every photo is worthy of becoming a gorgeous postcard. Such stunning views and your experience of road trip is amazing, though the bungee jump looks scary!

    New Zealand has always fascinated me but I can never figure out where to go! I’ll definitely consider your road drive when I plan my trip. The pictures and landscapes look amazing!!

    One, your photos are BEYOND beautiful! Two, you are soooo brave for bungie jumping! I don’t know if I would have the guts!

    A bungee jump in seems to be right of passage in NZ but I’m still not sure I could bring myself to it, well done you though! Maybe by 2019 when I hope to visit I will have the guts!

      ha ha! well said, bungee jumping was one of the highlights, second only to Milford Trek.

    Oh my goodness! I am LOVING this! My mum and I are planning a NZ adventure for 2019 and the road trip you’ve laid out here looks fantastic – a perfect mix of seeing the most incredible natural sights, fun drives and adventure. Don’t think mum will partake in the bungee jump though…

      Just add some more time for Milford sound and you will come back with tons of memories.

    Weirdly enough. I love this post. It’s very different than many New Zealand posts. I loved that you ventured out of the ordinary and showed a different side. This is just amazing. Amazing pictures and amazing experiences.

    I LOVED driving in New Zealand, and i loved seeing this post with places that we didn’t make it to!

    I found the roads were really good, and not too busy (even though we were there at the height of summer…) I like that they have the overtaking lanes every so often so you can zoom past all the camper vans!!

    But the views, the views from the roads were all amazing weren’t they! We went from Christchurch down to Te Anau and Milford Sound (Via Mount Cook and Wanaka) so I have seen some of the same scenery as you…we need to go back and explore more though!!

      There is so much to explore in New Zealand, we loved the south island. We drove to Te Anau twice – one for Routeburn trek and then for Milford trek. It was incredible. We were there in April, not too much traffic on the roads, and not much crowd on the treks. And we also managed to get a speeding ticket (for being 10 km above the speed limit)!
