New Zealand Highlights

My trip to New Zealand in 2011 was simply amazing, it's a beautiful country suited for travelers and adventurers. I hiked, hitchhiked, flew a helicopter and performance plane, kayaked, camped, geeked out, sipped wine, kiwi burned, fished, biked and heaps more.


Over 8,500 kilometers traveled  (over 5,200 miles), mostly hitchhiking, around 300km hiking on foot, and a loop around the south island in a luxury tour bus for free after getting picked up hitchhiking by the right person at the right time.

I captured this three month trip with 17 stories, 469 photos and 3 videos.

Dr. Bronners soap is the swiss army knife of hygiene on the road. I can use it as soap and shampoo in the shower, brush my teeth with it, wash my clothes and more. The stuff is magic, check it out and other gear I like to use while traveling.
