  • QueenstownHaving spent a few weeks mainly camping in near freezing temperatures (and sometimes below), with the occasional night or two in a real bed, packing up a cold wet tent regularly was starting to wear a little thin. With early Posted by emily_k in South Island Sojourn | Sep 30, 2020

  • Waiheke Island==SHORT SUMMARY== When we arrived in New Zealand on February the 5th, we wanted to spend a few days seeing Thibault, Christelle's brother, and then travel and find work, here and there, without settling too much, until September.

  • Campervan Part 2Next leg of the adventure, let’s go! Driving in the dark is never fun, less so first thing in the morning on about six hours sleep. But we had places to be, new sights to see. We were heading into Posted by joe90mitch in Joe and Rachel round the world | Aug 9, 2020

  • Waiheke Island (New Zealand)==FIRST STEPS== We arrived in New Zealand on February 5 (we were lucky, a month later and it would have been a little more complicated).
