I miss traveling.
I just came across some pictures from our New Zealand/Fiji trip. It was our last big trip before we had kids. I thought I'd share some of them because -- sigh, it was a great trip.
New Zealand is an amazing place. It has beautiful glaciers, beaches, farmland and more. We spent multiple weeks taking trains and driving around mostly the southern island.
The people were so nice it was ridiculous. Every time we had a map out, a local would come over to us and ask us if they could help us out -- no joke.
The trip was Song's idea, so I have to give him credit for planning it. We did some really fun activities like black water rafting, regular white water rafting and canyoning.
I can't state enough times how gorgeous everything was. We had a couple of hotel reservations every couple of days and kind of wung it in between.
One of the best "detours" we took was to Milford Sound. The drive in -- which many people hike -- was just breathtaking.
When we got there we took a boat out to see what was essentially a land of waterfalls. I don't think I've ever seen that many waterfalls in such a small area.
I miss traveling because things are different than home. Like the fact that happy hours start a little later there.
And, they have super tall police officers who wear the shortest shorts (I know, we visited countless cities in New Zealand, and this is what I tell you about).
Fiji was also fabulous. Less adventurous, more relaxing though -- reminiscent of our Tahiti trip.
After flying into Fiji we took a puddle jumper, and then boat to the tiny, and I mean tiny, island of Mantangi.
It's a private island and we, along with a handful of other people, were the only people staying there.
I have visions of taking them to places like New York to see shows, Paris to eat crepes and baguettes and even back to New Zealand.
I have big plans for the Little Wickies.
