This book of photographs were taken on a road trip around New Zealand during the summer of 2010 and 2011.
Beginning the journey in Auckland, we travelled down the North Island making our way to Wellington.
A short and windy trip though the Marlborough Sounds led us to Picton where we resumed the trip through some of the South Island’s most picturesque landscapes.
Our rental car along with a flimsy tent, some great family and friends helped us to see this beautiful country.
From wineries to mountainous landscapes, we finished our journey in Christchurch just two weeks before an earthquake would change the city forever.
