New Zealand Holidays

Here you’ll find stories about our travels in New Zealand, free camping in another old van, but this time with Bert the dog.  It’s a view from the inside, mainly away from the big tourist attractions.  Many people want to visit New Zealand and we love it too, even more after living overseas.  Every so often we spend a few days exploring the rugged countryside and empty roads in the van.  We also stay at our bach on the Otago Peninsula, the wildlife capital of New Zealand, where seals, sea lions, albatrosses and penguins live close by.

The stories here include cheap things to do, delicious food, and back roads to explore.
