TRAVELOG PART 3 : NEW ZEALAND

We travelled around 3000kms in two weeks. No one said this roadtrip is easy but I am totally in love with everything about it. Perhaps my only regret is not having the full campervan experience. That comes at a price also. I must give praise to YHA hostels we stayed throughout the South Island. The hostels are well equipped and although sometimes we have to share our bathroom, it wasn't a dealbreaker. The kitchen is very well equipped, much better than a lot of the AirBNBs I was putting up in.

Arrowtown and Cromwell is relatively near to Queenstown and we stopped by this two magnificent places to see their beauty. Arrowtown is absolutely beautiful. New Zealand has a pinecone issue as pinecones can relatively live throughout winter and they grow exponentially fast. They are also very versatile and can live for months without water. The birds in New Zealand are also defenseless. When they are threatened, these Moas or Kiwis cant fly or run. They just stand there as a prey to foxes or possums. That is why the people here are trying very hard to find some balance by managing pinecone growth and possum nuisance.

Our last destination for this part is Doubtful Sound. We didn't try the more commercialized Milford Sound as everyone I've asked told me Doubtful Sound is so much more beautiful and bigger than Milford Sound. I'm not sure about that but I'm guessing you wouldn't really go wrong with any of these places. We stayed one night on the Fiordland Navigator during our Doubtful Sound trip and although the weather was rather gloomy and drizzling during the first day, we managed to catch the best light on our way back.
