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 Itinerary: 2 Weeks on the South Island

PROS AND CONS OF TRAVELLING NEW ZEALAND BY BUS

Let's break down the pros and cons of travelling New Zealand by bus compared to renting/buying a car or camper van! We have had a mixture of both during our time exploring New Zealand.

We mainly used the Naked Passport from Naked bus:

Going by bus is definitely cheaper than buying a car but you have a lot less freedom and if you have the money, I would 100% recommend that you travel around New Zealand with your own set of wheels!

Full video/vlog of our 3 week adventure through the spectacular yet under-rated North Island of New Zealand. We explored caves, went Zorbing, white-water rafting, jet-boating, hiking, camping, and sailing. There's so much to see on the North Island: Rolling green hills, waterfalls, caves, forests, black sand beaches, volcanos, geothermic streams and hot springs, sub-tropical islands, and native Maori cultural sites.

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.
