So the first part of exploring the South Island was already amazing and we did not even visit the top sites if we must believe the internet. That fact made us very excited for part 2. Kicking of with Queenstown.
Leaving Australia was hard. We loved it there! It was quite a challenge to switch mentally to a different country even though we were excited to explore New Zealand. We booked a flight to Christchurch, rented another motorhome and knew that we were flying out close to 4 weeks later from Auckland. We wanted to see both islands, starting with the South island, which everybody claims to be the most beautiful. We only planned the first couple of days and planned everything else while in New Zealand. This is where we ended up;
Driving to Melbourne through the Great Ocean Road was always on our list. The Great Ocean Road is probably one of the most famous scenic drives in the world. We did extend it a bit and started in Adelaide. A lot of people skip Adelaide, but we heard nothing but good about Adelaide, so we were very curious.
