Cross Country Roadtrip New Zealand

My partner and I set aside time in August to go on a holiday. We considered tropical islands near New Zealand, we thought about going back to southeast Asia, or a road trip in Australia. It took us a little too long to realise that people from all over the world come to New Zealand to have an epic adventure in our own backyard.

We agreed to road trip the South Island since neither of us have been to the West Coast. Fate presented herself when my partner's family asked us to do them a favour and drive their motorhome from Auckland to Christchurch.

Now we're working on our itinerary, while still remaining flexible dependent on weather. Below is the final outcome.
