2016 has started with a bang! I've been exploring the sunnier skies and longer days of New Zealand's north island in a camper van. This is my second visit to New Zealand but first to the north island. The north is much more populated, with a warmer climate, lots of beautiful sandy beaches, surf towns and scatterings of volcanoes and hot springs. Not to mention some big creative cities, Wellington had a very strong Bristol vibe which was fun to discover. Being a fIlm geek I had to visit Hobbiton and Weta works too. Here's a few pics.
