SCRIBBLING EXPLORERS

We haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on our list.

New Zealand: North VS South, who wins?

New Zealand has a very well trodden path for backpackers and holidaymakers alike. The landscape and natural beauty across the country is world class and it’s hard to argue with anyone when they say it’s the most picturesque country in the world. But when it comes to the North and South islands, which one is better? Which one has more to offer and which did I personally prefer? The South The South [...]

Wanaka, what a cracka

Waking up right next to one of the most beautiful lakes in New Zealand was a real treat this morning, it was somewhat distorted by the amount of condensation on the windows but still beautiful. It was dark when we arrived here yesterday so I quickly grabbed my camera and ran to the shoreline to take a few snaps, there was even a rainbow. Hayley is on a bit on a health kick at the moment and really [...]

But upon doing some research we came across Fox Glacier apparently the second best Sky Dive in the world thanks [...]

All aboard in Milford Sounds

So we made it through the night sleeping in the car without a knock at the window from Milford Sounds Lodge’s staff. Before setting off for today’s cruise we thought it would only be right to make use of their showers and kitchen seen as we’d already used the car park as a hotel. Stealing someones bacon from the fridge was probably a step too far so we made do with our eggs and beans and then made [...]
