North Island | NZ Adventure
Oct. 24, 26 and 27, 2016
New Zealand's South Island is snow-capped mountains; empty, winding roads; and pockets of tourist adventure spots. The North Island is rolling green hills, city traffic, and towns where actual Kiwis live. People say the South Island is the prettier of the two, but the North Island has its own charms. After taking the ferry from Picton to Wellington and spending two days in the quirky capital city, I rented a car and drove up to Auckland, passing some beautiful spots along the way.
