Road trip North Island of New Zealand

I arrived in Auckland well rested with no films on board, in fact i never watch movies.

I have landed on a flight from Hong Kong. It was 26 hours in the air.

I booked my rental car in Hong Kong before my flight to Auckland, to keep it simple and less stress.

Point to Point travels, this way one does not need to worry about the next travel plans.

Just guess 26 hours in the air and then feeling fresh and alive and with lots of energy.
Most of the flight I only had water and lots of sleep.

Driving in New Zealand is very much like driving in England.

The roads are safe and most of all the part from the Maori names much of the other names of the villages and towns are named after places in England.

NEW ZEALAND Roadtrip | GoPro Travel | TRAVEL VLOG

Roadtrippin the South Island in New Zealand was the bomb! Is this place real life? Like seriously? So we started in Christchurch and did the loop: Nelson to Takaka to Punakaiki to Fox Glacier to Wanaka to Queenstown to Te Anau to Milford Sound to Dunedin to Mount Cook and back to Christchurch. So. Sick.

Any questions let me know!

New Zealand Travel Budget - Campervan Roadtrip

How much does it cost to travel New Zealand? We were able to spend 45 days touring both islands for around $4,000 total! That’s less than $50 per person per day!

In the video we breakdown the amount we spent on our car rental, groceries, fuel, campsites, eating out, cellphone, and miscellaneous costs. Additionally, we discuss where we feel like we could have saved money and where we wish we had spent more.

ABOUT US:
We’re traveling full time, living on our own terms and showing you the up-close-and-personal details of us figuring it out along the way. Sometimes it’s about navigating big, life-altering decisions. Sometimes it’s about navigating the seemingly lawless free-for-all that is driving in Hanoi. It’s moments of triumph and moments of panic. The good, the bad, the ugly – and most importantly, the real and real funny.

We’re not here to tell you “how it’s done.” Just how we’ve done it. And that whatever it is that’s calling you - the way you’ll do it is much more attainable than it may seem. We believe the world’s a more interesting place when people reject convention in favor of what they actually care about. This is us putting that idea to the test – one budget spreadsheet, RV renovation and mountain-peak drone video at a time.

New Zealand: The Ultimate Travel Guide by TourRadar 5/5

New Zealand: The Ultimate Travel Guide by TourRadar gives you all the info you need to explore this nation of Kiwis. Learn some basics about the country, including what you have to do & see once you arrive, when it's best to travel and which food & drinks you definitely need to enjoy throughout your journey.
-----------------------------------------------
New Zealand has a lot to offer even the most particular traveller. From the lively neighbourhoods of Wellington to the breathtaking Fiordland of the South Island, there's an adventure tucked away in every corner of this impressive country. Consider living out your own Lord of the Rings adventure in Hobbiton, or hike past Mt. Doom in Tongariro National Park. Not thrilling enough? Then skydive over Auckland, go white water rafting down Kaituna River or take a leap of faith and bungee jump in Queenstown! When you're in New Zealand, nearly ever adventure is only a stone's throw away.

Make the most out of your visit to this remote island nation by assembling your bucket list with our travel guide. Booking a tour will ensure your trip is fun, flawless and stress-free:


New Zealand boasts a temperate climate with plenty of sunshine and moderate rainfall. Because of the long coast line, you can expect mild temperatures for the most part. The average temperature decreases as you travel south; January and February are the warmest months with July being the coldest month of the year. Remember to pack your waterproof hiking boots, waterproof rain jacket, swimsuit, flip flops, thin gloves, hiking socks, sunglasses, and a camera with extra batteries.

New Zealand's currency is the New Zealand Dollar (NZ$). You should expect to be able to switch between cash and cards quite seamlessly, as all major credit cards can be used in New Zealand. Alcohol and restaurant meals can range from moderate to quite expensive so prepare yourself accordingly.

We'd like to thank New Zealand's incredible tourism board for allowing use of their travel footage:

---About New Zealand---

New Zealand, exists on a remote island in the Pacific Ocean and is home to over 4.6 million people, and nearly 30 million sheep.

The country is divided into two portions: the North and South Islands separated by the Cook Strait. The North Island is home to many hot springs and geysers while the South Island is mountainous, forested and covered in glaciers. Over 75% of New Zealanders call the North Island home, and more than 15% of New Zealand's energy comes from renewable resources.
