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:
TRIPPED PAN AM: A 3 year journey from Alaska to Antarctica. Starting this summer.

AUCKLAND NEW ZEALAND City Guide | Kiwi Vacation Travel Vlog

Auckland, New Zealand is a metropolitan city in the North Island inhabited by people that are meant to live on the countryside. In fact, the city part of Auckland feels out of place! It doesn't make this place any less beautiful though. If only passing through for 24 hours like myself, you will easily enjoy this quaint city and realize that this place is meant to be countryside! Join me as I visit the sky tower and try out an Ostrich Burger. Find out tips along the way and explore this city which has the most per capita of boats in the world!

This is my final vlog of the Australia/New Zealand series so stay tuned for more!

American Cities are next!! Enjoy this final Kiwi city and PLEASE SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT and LIKE LIKE LIKE!

Ultimate North Island New Zealand Travel Guide

After coming back home to the US, I compiled a (very long) list of some of my favorite places I went in the North Island of NZ. I ended up falling in love with almost every destination I visited, so there are a lot of places on this list!

If you're planning on going to the South Island as well or are just interested in seeing a glimpse of the beauty of the South Island, check out my EPIC South Island Road Trip video:

Hope these give you some ideas of where to visit if you're planning a trip to New Zealand. If you like this video, make sure to give it a thumbs up so I know to make more videos like this, subscribe to see more of my videos, and let me know in the comments what your favorite place in the North Island was or where you're most looking forward to going. Happy travels!

New Zealand Road Trip: Ep 1 - Backpacking the North Island

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

Episode 1 begins in the North Island, at the capital city of Wellington. Driving with my Kiwi friend Matt, he takes me off the beaten track to show me how Kiwi's enjoy their own country.

Stops include Vinegar Hill, Napier, Tokomaru Bay, Rere Rockslide and Whakatane.

Then I take Matt on the classic backpacking trail, making him a tourist in his own country.

Stops include Auckland, Waiheke Island, Waitomo Glow Worm Caves, Rotorua, Taupo and the Tongariro Crossing.

Back in December my wife and I quit our jobs, packed everything up, and hit the road for 5 1/2 months. We travelled to New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. These were Days 1-24 of our journey.

More information about Waiheke Island from Wikipedia

Waiheke Island is in the Hauraki Gulf of New Zealand. Its ferry-terminal in Matiatia Bay at the western end is 21.5 km (13.4 mi) from the downtown terminal in Auckland—measured on GPS by Fullers Ferry captains.

It is the second-largest island in the gulf, after Great Barrier Island. It is the most populated island in the gulf, with nearly 8,730 permanent residents plus another estimated 3,400 who have second or holiday homes on the island.

It is New Zealand's most densely populated island, with 95 people/km², and the third most populated after the North and South Islands. It is the most accessible island in the Gulf, with regular passenger and car ferry services, a Waiheke-based helicopter operator, and other air links.

In November 2015, Waiheke Island received international attention when it was rated the fifth best destination in the world to visit in 2016 by Lonely Planet and also voted the fourth best island in the world in the Condé Nast Best Islands in the World List.

The island is off the coast of the North Island. It is 19.3 km (12.0 mi) long from west to east, varies in width from 0.64 to 9.65 km (0.40 to 6.00 mi), and has a surface area of 92 km2 (36 sq mi). The coastline is 133.5 km (83.0 mi), including 40 km (25 mi) of beaches.

The port of Matiatia at the western end is 17.7 km (11.0 mi) from Auckland and the eastern end is 21.4 km (13.3 mi) from Coromandel. The much smaller Tarahiki Island lies 3 km (1.9 mi) to the east.

The island is very hilly with few flat areas, the highest point being Maunganui at 231 m (758 ft).[5] The climate is slightly warmer than Auckland, with less humidity and rain and more sunshine hours.

There are many scenic beaches, including:

Oneroa Beach – The main beach, on the northern side of the town of Oneroa.

Little Oneroa Beach – A small secluded beach at the east end of Oneroa Beach, separated by a protruding cliff wall.

Palm Beach – Similar in shape to Oneroa Beach (complete with protruding cliff wall at the east end that separates a small private beach in Boatshed Bay), it gets its name from the mature phoenix palms at the east end.

Little Palm Beach – A small clothes-optional beach at the west end of Palm Beach.

Blackpool Beach – The south-facing counterpart of Oneroa Beach, lining Blackpool and popular for kayaking and windsurfing.

Sand castle on Oneroa Beach.

Surfdale Beach – A zoned-in beach on the southern side of Surfdale, separated from Blackpool Beach by a small protruding peninsula, which has a scenic unsealed route called The Esplanade linking the beaches. Popular for kitesurfing.

Onetangi Beach – A 1.87-kilometre (1.16-mile) long, north-facing beach lining Onetangi. For many years it has been the site of the Onetangi Beach Races. Its western end, often inaccessible at high tide, is clothes-optional. It has sandcastle building contests annually; participants have a few hours to build their creations in soft sand that is free of shells and suitable for digging.

Cactus Bay – Considered by many Waihekeans as the most perfect beach and, with nearby Garden Cove, a romantic place for picnicking. The beach is accessible only by boat or kayak, as its land access was blocked off by a private landowner.

Shelly Beach – A small and well sheltered shell and stone beach located between Oneroa and Ostend. It has free BBQ facilities and a diving platform located just off shore. It's a popular choice with families as at high tide, it is often very calm and flat - ideal for children.

Hope you guys learnt something new! If you're still reading this far comment with that island life tho in the comments section!!!
