I live in New Zealand, so to get amazing travel memories, I don't even have to leave our shores! One of my favourite was a spontaneous road trip we took one summer. We chucked our tent in our car, grabbed some clothes, headed North for 5 days of perfect weather and fun.
Driving up the East Coast lead us to spectacular golden sand beaches, big green rolling hills, and deep blue waters. Yes, we stopped in every single bay and swam.
Eventually reaching Cape Reinga, the peak of the North Island, witnessing the converging waters of the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea was breathtaking!
Driving back down the the West Coast was stark contrast - black sand beaches, black choppy waters, but equally as beautiful. It was the best adventure ever!
