The ultimate road trip. What do you get when you put two Middle-Earth nerds in one car? An epic 7 week journey through the most beautiful country in the world.
It is 2015, I have been back at work for less than 5 months, and it was time for another adventure. Back to New Zealand, back to where my love for travel and the outdoors truly began. It was a one-way rental from Auckland to Christchurch. After exploring the North Island for just over two weeks - from Cape Reinga to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and from Miramar to the Waitomo Caves - we got on the Interislander to spend the next 5 weeks touring the South Island.
Skydiving in Wanaka, jumping off rocks at the Pelorus Bridge and kayaking at dawn in Milford Sound, just to name a few activities we loved on the South Island. Hiking a section of the Routeburn Track, summiting Ishtmus Peak and doing a couple of coastal walks on the West Coast. No shortage of epic footage for movies and pictures.
Here is the aftermovie of 7 amazing weeks in New Zealand with a rental car.
