Back in Auckland!

Up one of the small mountains to see sunset! So beautiful! 

Image

The Beach with cute little blue jelly fishy!

Image

Image

Image

Rock pools with lots of colourful thingys! (I can’t remember what their called!)

Image

The CAVE!

Image

Everything’s so cool when you’re a tourist!

Image

Image

Image

More weird cute little blue jelly fishies!

Image

Image

Sky tower of Auckland!! So tall!

Image

And that’s the end of our New Zealand and Australia trip! It was one of the best holidays I’ve had! And the longest! It is definitely worth doing if you plan to take a year out! I would definitely recommend going around the south island in a campervan as it gives you WAY more freedom with where to go as you don’t have to wait for buses and get taxis etc! Works out cheaper in the long run too if you are doing it for more than 2 weeks! You have your own kitchen and toilet so it allows you to camp pretty much any where! 

Hope you enjoyed reading our adventures! Thanks! Now back to our normal lives!

Back in Auckland and the start of Australian adventures!

So we dropped off our campervan and flew back up north to Auckland where Kieran’s friend picked us up! Played a bit of mini-golf! Fun times!

Image

Then back to the airport to fly to Australia! 2 weeks of Australian adventures! Upon arrival we saw this sign..

Image

We thought we were in for that Australian border control tv show! False alarm! We got through and it was practically empty!

Kieran’s friend picked us up and we headed back to theirs for the night! And OMG.. first encounter of wild kangaroos! One massive one hopped right out onto the road and was bouncing along ahead of us!! Then a smaller one after that! Was crazy! I was like.. AHHH OMG KANGAROOOOOO! And the guy goes “yeah, this is very common in Australia”. Wooo Woo! So if you like kangaroos/wallabies, this is your country.. IF you’re not afraid of large insects!

Then we went to visit some wild koala bears! Can you spot them!?

Image

It was hard to get close ups because they were so far away. 

Then to the 12 apostles… I didn’t quite see twelve, but that happens as the rocks wear down from the waves

Image

And them some rock pool where eels swim up to during spawning season apparently

Image

We visited the Gold Mines and the towns they were inImage

Image

Then off to wildlife park! I loved the wildlife parks in Australia because wallabies and kangaroos were everywhere! And you can buy little seed packets and feed them or feed them bread! and the time we were there there were little babies in the mother kangaroo’s pouches! 

Image

Image

Mother wallaby with baby wallaby poking out awkwardly! But so cute at the same time!

Image

And parrots!

Image

And then our friend Diesel! Drunk on his Eucalyptus leaves!

Image

Beautiful view from a hill top!

Image

We went to visit China town! So amazing! If you’re interested in Chinese culture or even if you’re Chinese with no interest, it’s really amazing. Just the history there! 

Image

Image

A very pretty white tree!

Image

One of the many piers in Melbourne!

Image

Then off to see the little penguins! They didn’t let us take pictures of the actual penguin in case we scared them, so this is as good as it gets! 😀

Image

Walking the forest!! Strange seeds in the trees!

Image

Beautiful tropical flowers! I LOVE!

Image

Kangaroo paws.. because they look like kangaroo’s paws!

Image

These were SO PRETTY! My fav!

ImageImage

All these flowers were so eye-catching!

Image

The Birthday Candle plant!

Image

 

Then off to the Melbourne Museum! It’s absolutely amazing so I’d definitely go if you ever visit Melbourne! Kids and adults will find it so much fun!! Just so many things to see!

Image

Image

Image

I’m a monster!!

Good morning Queenstown ❤

Image

Image

The start of a very cold morning! And Kieran the crazy man decided to go for a swim in the icey cold water and ended up with purple feet! Hilarious!

Image

Drove back to Wanaka to watch another movie in Rubys! 😛 But before that we decided to pop into Federal Diner’s for a Latter! They do amazing coffees and deserts!! Very friendly staff too!
