New Zealand

A country that Lee has always wanted to visit, and somewhere that has always fascinated James, being a half kiwi – we were really lucky to visit New Zealand at the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020. And to say that the country didn’t disappoint is an understatement. We were totally blown away by the beauty and rawness of New Zealand. It is without doubt the country with the most photographable landscapes that we have visited.

And if you’re at all outdoorsy or even more adventurous, you have to get New Zealand high up onto your bucket list. From some world class hiking, to wonderful lakes and sounds, to skiing, and every adventure activity you can think of, New Zealand is the place for you. Then on top of that, you have one of the best wine regions in the world in the form of Marlborough!

Contrary to many places we’ve been, it’s also the perfect country to try out camping and campervanning, with some of the best free camping rules, you can experience New Zealand in a really unique way, at a much cheaper cost than many other first world countries.
