60: New Zealand Part 2 (South Island)

May 28, 2019

We heard about the natural beauty of the South Island of New Zealand from travelers around the world. They told us many times about the mountains, hills, lakes, and countless sheep. We began our trip in Christchurch, where we started our adventures around the South Island. We stayed in Lake Tekapo, Lake Wanaka, Queenstown, Ranfurly, and Dunedin. With our rental car fueled up, we took our time discovering the ins and outs of this wonderful country. We stopped many times to take photos along the way. Listen to this episode of Passport Joy Travel Talk to understand why ending our journey in New Zealand was the perfect way to wrap up our trip of a lifetime.
