The main reason for doing this is to be able to see more of New Zealand. We started this challenge way back in 2014 but I feel that after Covid-19 and the lockdowns. With the restrictions on overseas travel, this is an awesome time to explore New Zealand. We still have a lot more to visit and would love to know any tips on how to get to see some. Leave a reply below or email me at to let me know what you think or of any others that are not on the list that are worth visiting.
Being based in Christchurch now we may be able to get to a few more local ones.
