Been a Minute

Hello Blog.

It’s been a minute. These last couple of weeks have been absolutely crazy. We had our mid-semester break and I got to do some traveling and I can’t wait to share some of it with you all.

Camper Van in NZ

First week of break, a few friends and I went to New Zealand. We rented a camper van and traveled around the south island. New Zealand is beautiful. Words and pictures just don’t do it justice. It should be on everyones travel bucket list.

We flew into Christchurch and drove to Arthur’s Pass and hiked up to a waterfall. The next day we went on a helihike where a helicopter flew us out to a glacier and a tour guide walked around with us. I got to sit shotgun in the helicopter which was pretty cool.

Nevis Swing

The next day we drive to Queenstown where I swung on the Nevis Swing. The views were amazing. I’ve come to realize that I’m quite the adrenaline junkie so this was really fun.

Kayaking Milford Sound

The next day we went to Milford Sound. Milford Sound is the prettiest place I have ever laid eyes on. We kayaked across the sound and got to take in all the views from the water.

Week 2: Great Ocean Road

We drove back to Christchurch and flew back to Sydney after a week in New Zealand. We then had about a two day turn around and we flew to Melbourne to drive the Great Ocean Road.

Road Signs Down Under

This was my first time driving on the left side of the road. It was quite stressful at first but I got the hang of it pretty quick.

New Friend Down Under

We drove from Melbourne to Adelaide and stopped to do a treetop walk and look at views such as the 12 Apostles along the way.

We got back to Newcastle late Monday night and it was back to school and real life Tuesday. I’ve had an amazing two weeks but it’s nice to not live out of a suitcase for a while.
