Follow our three part road trip travel vlogs across the North and South Islands of New Zealand in our Campervan!

The final stop on our major travels of 2016 was 3 weeks in New Zealand; and we wanted to see literally everything! Our main agenda was to cover as much of the South Island as possible and do as many activities as we could arrange and afford! The most exciting video to come from this series will absolutely be part two, where we visited Franz Josef, and some of the lakes and national parks of New Zealand.

NORTH ISLAND NEW ZEALAND ROAD TRIP - Coromandel Penninsula

NORTH ISLAND NEW ZEALAND ROAD TRIP - Coromandel Penninsula

It’s the last week of our 6 week New Zealand campervan road trip! Before heading to Auckland we take some time to explore the Coromandel Peninsula including Cathedral Cove (Te Whanganui-A-Hei) Marine Reserve and Hot Water Beach(in Mercury Bay).

There’s also time to squeeze in one last quick hike up along Mount Paku Summit as well. While a beautiful lookout in it’s own right we can’t help but feel like after the Tongariro Alpine Crossing everything else just feels kind of...well...not the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. That might be something to keep in mind when you’re planning your own NZ trip.

To really cap off the NZ experience we spent our last night camping in a sheep paddock while we cleaned out our campervan. Not sure it gets more NZ than that.

New Zealand: You are a complicated, beautiful mistress. You reward visitors with unparalleled natural beauty but you punish with rain and sand flies. The price is worth it. (And, since we paid our speeding ticket from our friends in Hokitika, we’ll be allowed back to visit someday in the future.)

WHO ARE WE?
TRIPPED: First we took a 1 year around the world honeymoon :
TRIPPED RV: Renovated RV. Driving to Alaska RIGHT NOW:

NO NEED FOR A HOTEL, NEW ZEALAND ROAD TRIP | VLOG 01

For our first ever vlog we wanted to start off with a bang, an EPIC 13 DAY 4WD ROADTRIP AROUND NEW ZEALAND!

From Christchurch to Mt Cook, Queenstown, Milford Sound, Lake Tepako and more. Together with @elliotgrafton we took on the South Island of New Zealand in a landcruiser, a couple roof top tents and our cameras.

The adventure that transpired you won’t believe, seriously hands down one of the best trips we have ever been on!!

This is New Zealand in all its Glory.

————————————————————————————-

Behind every pretty photo on Instagram there’s a story. Together as a couple we have been travelling the world creating content and posting on Instagram for 2.5 years. The journey has been crazy. We’ve had opportunities and experiences that we couldn’t even imagine existed at the time we posted our first photo.

We given up a lot and we’ve gained a lot, we’ve worked hard taken risks and realised our dreams. There’s so much more to this life than meets the eye on Instagram, we’ve been meaning to share a lot more for a long time and that time has finally come!

What is it like being an ‘influencer’, what does it even involve?, how the heck does an influencer even make money?, whats it like living and working together 24/7 as a couple? How does one work towards this digital nomad lifestyle? What is all the hype about?

Follow us on our weekly vlogs as we attempt to answer these questions and more in the most raw and personal content we’ve ever created.
A massive thankyou to Joe and the team at @grit_rentals for the landcruiser that made our trip

And an even bigger thankyou to the super talented @elliotgrafton who is now a fully fledged member of the mariefeandjakesnow team. Its time to change the world through love, compassion, positivity, selflessness and knowledge. One video at a time!!

New Zealand Road Trip - North Island

This is the first chapter of Sakaw Travelling's adventure in New Zealand. In this video, We roamed all around North Island in just 3 days. We're roadtripping from Auckland, Matamata, Rotorua, Taupo, Waitomo, and Coromandel Peninsula. Yes, it's possible. Well, if it were up to us, we wouldn't mind staying there for a month or two. But in Indonesia the maximum amount of office leaves we get is just 12 days for a year. So yeah, this is the best we can get. Stay tuned for the second chapter, the astonishing south island of New Zealand. :)

Oh yeah, feel free to follow our instagram @sakawtravelling or Cheers guys.

We spent a few more days in the North Island before heading out to the South Island.

Walked along the boardwalk bridges of the Redwoods forest, inhaled the smell of sulfur in the Geothermal park of Wai-O-Tapu and hiked for 6 hours in Tongariro National Park to see the Tama lakes!!

I return to New Zealand for a 7 week road trip around both the North and South Island in this 2 part documentary series.

North Island Roadtrip - New Zealand Vlog #2

Here is my vlog from our week long roadtrip of the North Island of New Zealand. Starting in New Plymouth, and making our way to some natural hot springs, Rotorua, Taupo, Huka Falls and a few other places along the way. I honestly apologize for the quality of the footage. Sometimes I'm too busy being in the moment, and when I'm on the go it's hard to take the time to stop and get quality clips.

Here is my vlog from Hamilton/Raglan New Zealand, which is on the North Island.

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.
