🚢Explore Milford Sound with Southern Discoveries


ℹ️About the episode:
This is New Zealand. This is why we came. We stumbled across the best campsite ever. Truly stumbled across. After we stopped in Te Anau to get the Wildness Motorhome window fixed we decided to pass on the expensive holiday parks and make some progress toward Milford Sound. We found a great free camping option with no data coverage and the boys were persistent to leave. We drove up the road a bit further and found a decent site, but Trish suggested we keep driving a bit more. Then we found Deer Flat Campsite. Not only were the views gorgeous, but the boys found a rope swing and we enjoyed a glass of wine on the picnic table.

And then there was Milford Sound. No explanation is necessary. The video says it all. If you’re interested in seeing Milford Sound from the water, check out Southern Discoveries.

3 Different Campgrounds | South Island, New Zealand

I start exploring the South Island in New Zealand and stay at 3 different types of campgrounds.

The first is a Department of Conservation campground called Pelorus Bridge Campground in the Marlborough area. Absolutely beautiful spot, but unfortunately rained for most of my stay.

I then move to a more traditional campground in Nelson. This is actually the first campground I stayed at after purchasing my caravan! It's called Tahuna Beach Kiwi Holiday Park and it's a huge campground. I ended up staying in the 8th section I think? In that part, only self contained vehicles can stay and you get a perk if you are an NZMCA member.

I then move to Ruby Bay (which is not far from Nelson) and stay at McKee Memorial Reserve. It's right by the water and has only just opened again after a storm damaged it.

Picking up our Campervan Rental in New Zealand! NZ Ep. 3

The day before we picked up our Wilderness Motorhome rental here in New Zealand, we received an alarming email. The RV we rented needed a few repairs and unfortunately, they wouldn't be done in time! Cue panic attack.

But since we couldn't get the 6-meter campervan we booked, they offered to upgrade us to the 7-meter campervan. We were bummed for about two seconds since we had already told everyone how excited we were about our tiny van. But the rig we are in now is SO COOL. We've seen a lot of RVs in our time, but this one is hands down the coolest.

Check out the video to see our reactions to seeing it for the first time. For the full specs on the RV we're renting, check out the Alpine 2 on Wilderness' website:

South Island is absolutely incredible, as Sarika says in the video it is truly 'Heaven On Earth'. We wished we could have stayed longer, but we plan to come back again and spend more time exploring. The weather gods blessed us with all seasons, especially with 'surprise' snow during this time of the year. Thank god we were well prepared !! The rain and snow made the scenery even more stunning :)

Enjoy watching our experience on this amazing island and we hope this video provides some inspiration for you to book your flights!

Catch yaa :)

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.
