I didn’t plan to love New Zealand’s South Island as much as I did. Over 2 weeks on and I am still telling anyone who will listen about this incredible place. Beautiful. Surreal. Jaw-dropping. Those are just some of the words I’d use to describe New Zealand’s South Island. Locals claim that is the best NZ Island and after a two-week road trip where we stumbled upon some of the country’s best landscapes and natural wonders, I would have to agree!
