Trip Itinerary: New Zealand in 9 Days

Trip Itinerary: New Zealand in 9 Days

They told us we were crazy but...

Naysayers- you can do North AND South Island of New Zealand in 9 days/ 8 nights. All it takes is a little bit of ambition and at least 2 cappuccinos a day. 

This post was inspired by something I read a while ago about being able to do a trip to Taipei in one weekend.

How it's going to work.
Today, I'll give you a board overview of the trip. Every week, I'll give a more in depth account of each day. This is hard for me- considering my tendency (and sheer delight) in spilling the beans. This is also because of the sheer amount of time it takes to organize content from a trip.

For your convenience, links to posts for each day will be included in this post. (I call that great customer service!)

The Intent.
You too have the energy and ambition your mega-adventure to New Zealand, Chile, or wherever!

Also, I realize this post is not very food-related, but just you wait! There will be plenty of coffee and brunch in the coming posts.

Here. We. Go.
