New Zealand Trip Report 2016 – Regina’s and André’s trip report

Too old to work, too young to die – let’s travel. My wife Regina and myself decided to visit the most exciting places on this world and since we don’t know how long we long we can afford the long flights we started with the most distant destinations. And after visiting Antarctica in 2015 the most distant target from Europe is New Zealand. So we had in January – February 2016 a gorgeous trip to the Southern and Northern Island of New Zealand. We spent ca 7 weeks there and  drove ca 6500 km in a rented camper. We would like to share our impressions with you in this New Zealand trip report 2016.

We were astonished about the variety of volcanic landscapes, seas, rivers glaciers and mountains, sandy beaches and rocks  that we have seen. Words can’t describe the very spectacular landscapes, the amazing nature and the wonderful colors we have seen.

Of course you could have seen the waterfalls in Canada, the fjords in Norway the sandy beaches in the Carribbean and the glaciers in Iceland, but in New Zealand you can see all these nature in one ‘small’ country. Gorgeous!

People are friendly, and travelling is very easy.
