You may have seen my recent post reflecting on the first few months of travelling New Zealand. I thought I’d go into more depth and create a few travel guides for places we’ve visited.
Auckland seemed a good place to start, as we spent two weeks there before heading off on a South Island road trip. I’m currently staying in Auckland again, so there’ll be lots more to come from this crazy place!
I was sorting through my blog categories the other day. When I got to the travel section, I realised I haven’t actually published that many posts about travelling in New Zealand.
When I wrote this post about quitting my job, a few people got in touch to say they wanted to see what I got up to.
We’ve been in the North Island for most of our trip so far. Since both of us are pansies, we wanted to avoid the South Island for most of the winter because the weather is generally much harsher there.
According to New Zealanders we’ve chatted to, the North Island rarely gets snow, even in winter, but pretty much the entirety of the South Island is covered. Super pretty to see, not so practical for living in or getting about.
And, yeah, if I wanted snow, I can get that at home.
