Wanderlust and City Dust

7 Jan 2018

And so, we have made it to the last few weeks of my time in New Zealand.  After finals ended (to be fair - I only had one final that was essay based) I had a few weeks off for a bit of solo travel.  I ended up flying to Wellington for a few days, enjoying a few farewell dinners with our IES Abroad group and other friends I made along the way, and visiting my favorite Christchurch spots for the last time.  For the last two weeks I was in NZ, my cousin came to visit, and we went on a huge road trip all the way through the south island. We kayaked, explored Milford Sound, saw the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers, and a whole lot more!  Hope you enjoy the first video of our travels south.
