island to island

So I now have my feet planted firmly on the terra firma of central Auckland and here they shall stay for a little while as I get to ticking off some of the projects that have been buzzing in my head for the last 6 months!  

North Canterbury to AucklandKaikoura Coast

If you are keen for a quick little pictorial tour, I snapped some shots on my way north on Tuesday from my parents little spot in North Canterbury, up the Kaikoura coast, skipped through the Marlborough Sounds and over the Cook Strait to Wellington where I bunked down for the night with some buddies. Next day up to Wanganui for a quick lunch with my Aunt and Uncle then weaved my way for hourrrsssss through the un-familiar hill country of the central North Island. Popped out of that then an hour of motorway to Auckland and Boom! Done!

You can also check out the pics I took of my drive from Wanaka to Christchurch a few weeks a go to paint the full picture of my trip.
