NZ Road Trip: By the Numbers

NZ Road Trip!
From mid-April to mid-July, Mac & I drove around the country for an NZ Road Trip in our little boat-sized 1997 Toyota Camry. We hiked, we camped, we saw & we adventured. And it was amazing. New Zealand is such a beautiful country and I’m so incredibly happy that we had almost 3 full months to explore almost every nook & cranny.

We saw glaciers & mountains, and waterfalls & pristine lakes. We admired […]

As per usual, I’m a few days late with this post. I do hope you’ll forgive me – but this was one of our best months yet & I just can’t resist recapping June (even if it is a week or so into July by the time I post this)!

Big Trip Summary & Statistics: Month #8

Month #8 started off with us finishing up our volunteering job in Valparaiso. From Valpo, we made a pit stop in the lovely little town of Pucon. Though our time there was quite rainy, we got lucky with one clear day where we hiked in one of the most beautiful snow-filled parks I’ve ever seen. It was totally worth the lack of appropriate winter-attire and soaked socks & shoes!

From Pucon, we went right into our […]

Big Trip Summary & Statistics: Month #7

Month #7 was a fairly stationary one because we spent 24 of the 30 days in Valparaiso volunteering at the Allegretto B&B. Because our accommodation was covered in exchange for volunteering, we spent very little money. Similar to our stay in La Paz, our main cost was food. Allegretto had an awesome kitchen (compared to most hostel kitchens), so we actually only ate out at restaurants for dinner 4 times. Though most of Month #7 […]
