For the final leg of our international trip, Mr. Selfish and I spent two weeks driving around New Zealand. Here was our itinerary: (1) Auckland, (2) Cambridge, (3) Rotorua, (4) Wellington, (5) Renwick in the Marlborough wine region, (6) Christchurch, (7) Dunedin, (8) Queenstown, and (9) Milford Sound.
And we drove all that in this amazing car:
Yes, it was a 10-year old Mitsubishi that didn’t even have powered locks. But I must admit it did get us around, albeit with very little horsepower.
The following are some of the more spectacular views we had while driving our little Mitsubishi in the North Island.
We took the Interislander ferry between Wellington and Renwick. We loved the wine in Renwick, as well as the mini traffic jam due to the herd of sheep passing by.
We found the drive in the South Island to be a bit more scenic, especially all of the ocean and mountain views between Christchurch and Dunedin.
However, for us, the most beautiful part of New Zealand was Queenstown.
In the next couple of weeks, we’ll go over our wonderful trip in New Zealand. I am certainly glad that we saved New Zealand for last; it was a lovely way to end our trip.
