First Up - New Zealand for our honeymoon!

overcast 20 °F

It has been an exciting year for us, so planning this trip seems like eons ago, and it's almost here! Seeing the calendar officially turn to December and picking out a few essentials for our trip has made this dream feel like a reality.

Planning this trip has been part of the fun, so we are hoping our hard work of research proves successful in New Zealand. We have our main excursions booked and have some little things to book once there. One of my favorite things to do is drive in a different country and we are doing just that over our 17-day adventure. It was hard to narrow our trip locations over the span of our trip, but being our honeymoon we didn't want to be too rushed and after much debate, decided to only hit the South Island. Our trip is December 24th - January 9th and some highlights planned include:

  • 3-day hike through the Fiordlands of Routeburn Track
  • Overnight boat cruise on Doubtful Sound
  • Glacier heli-hike in Fox Glacier
  • Whitewater rafting in Murchison
  • Bike wine tour in Marlborough, the infamous wine country region of NZ
  • Spending New Years Eve in Queenstown
  • Paragliding in Nelson

We can't wait for this journey to begin...the countdown is on!
