Travelogue: Trip to North Island, New Zealand - Overview

Since moving to Asia, one of my main places to visit on our bucket list is New Zealand. It always felt that it is at the other end of the world, too far to travel from UK. In addition, we have heard of amazing things about New Zealand and from what we hear, it is definitely a place up our alley as we love beautiful scenery, driving holidays and do you know what is the best part? - there is very little human doted around the country!! It would be a relaxing holiday away from the crowds

When we went to New Zealand, we were living in Hong Kong. We flew from Hong Kong to Auckland on Air New Zealand. It was our first time on the airline and it looked good. Very good seat pitch, more generous than Singapore Airlines. Wonder why they don't fly from Singapore?

Anyway we had 1.5 weeks to explore some parts of North Island, New Zealand. So follow us on our trip there. Here was our trip overview:
