After a month at home we were excited to be on the road again! And we saved the best part of our adventure for last: New Zealand and Australia.
We landed in Queenstown, New Zealand on Thursday morning and grabbed a rental car to start exploring the South Island. Our first stop was Te Anau, about a 2 1/2 hour drive from the airport, and the gateway to Fiordlands National Park. It did not take long for the landscape to blow us away, as we drove along mountain lined Lake Wakatipu and the beautiful farm land of the sometimes remote southern island. Sheep, cows, and deer farms dot the green rolling hills. Within an hour I could confirm Taylor's claim: New Zealand is the most beautiful country in the world.
