So far my trip in New Zealand 🇳🇿 brought me to Auckland, spent a few days in Wellington and a road trip in North Island that I detailed in part 1 and part 2. I crossed with a ferry to join the South Island, took a long bus 🚌😅 to reach the first town that I will be visiting: Christchurch. One thing for sure, South Island has a different landscape and scenery. It is the New Zealand you can see on travel magazines or those pictures trying to sell you a trip to this far away land. I love South Island more than North Island already! 😍😍 So after a speedy visit in Christchurch, I jumped on a plane direction Queenstown! ⛰ I hired a car from Jucy (again) and picked it up at the airport and the road trip in South Island begins! 🚙💨
Day 1 From Queenstown to Te Anau
TIP: make sure that you dress for the occasion. Weather can change quite quickly here! ☔

Day 2 Milford Sound
Kayak vs. Cruise
Good to know: Milford Sound is actually not a sound but a fjord! 🤓 🤯 and Fiordland should be written Fjordland, with a J, but they misspelled it! 🤦🏻♀️

Day 3 From Te Anau to Wanaka
That Wanaka Tree
This must be the most famous tree 🌳 of New Zealand 🇳🇿 – or the most photographed one and it is quite something to see. So I have done like every one coming to Wanaka. I followed the walk along the lake and went to see that Wanaka tree. A tree in a lake, looking so fragile but yet telling everyone ‘I’m here and I’m staying’! 💪🏻🌳

Day 4 Hiking in Wanaka
It is a very easy walk, less than 20minutes is needed to get to the pools. On a sunny day, this place is just a dream! But since the weather was a bit funny and rainy, the colours was not as beautiful as sold on the brochure 😂🙃😂
