New Zealand Travelogue 2017


If you have follow closely, I have finally (oh yes!) finished this 20 days of travelogue for New Zealand. Honestly, it’s pretty time consuming since I have to go through all the photos and worst, my poor memories to recap all in details. I’m glad I did it, because when I miss going holiday, I can read back and remember all the good old days 😂

Since wordpress love to post the latest entry first according to date, and it will be quite difficult to go through and finding all the entry from the first post (if you are using mobile, the scrolling can be quite tiring haha 😝) So this post will be really helpful for navigation to whoever is heading soon.

Note, this is based on October 2017 – November 2017 Traveling. 💕

[#fly2NZ] New Zealand Day 3


Simple itinerary for day 3 – Just a Cave and a Fall. 😅

 photo 20171019_100640 copy_zpsidfa5l32.jpg
We went for drive-thru breakfast and head for our 1hour drive! :) Honestly, the hashbrown that comes with it, is really GOOD!

So we did the famous Glowworm Caves experience and I really find it not as amazing as photo or video shown. You can’t take any photo or video of it as well, and its quite a short tour ☹️

After the ride… haha, nothing much but smile happily 😝

We wanted to take a photo of this car park slope because its really steep but we just can’t get it right haha!



Waitomo Glowworm Caves > Wairere Falls


I have been to a few waterfalls in my life, and those are in Jeju. I always thought, we just park nearby and we will able get to see it within 10 minutes walk. But, it doesn’t applied to NZ’s fall. haha. We went to Wairere Falls which is the highest waterfall in the North Island that is 500 feet tall :)

We went for the walking tracks that runs from the carpark to the lookout. NO we didn’t continue our route to the top of the falls as it will takes another 4hours returns and it will be really dark by then, we doesn’t want to get lost in the forest (according to NZ’s people leg length, we probably takes another 30mins more without resting lol).

We thought we might be halfway but no, we are not anywhere halfway. haha.

We walked, we climbed, we “crawled”.

& We finally reached the lookout for the Wairere Falls. The entire walk is pretty tiring because there isn’t nice smooth routes for us, its all about forest walk, and muddy path that we had to bear in mind to be careful than slip away.

And us! :)
