South Island Road Trip * A Summary

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

In April I took one thousand, four hundred and ninety seven photos on our South Island Road trip... and even still, I wish more of this experience could have been captured. I wrote about the BIG things... but it was the little things that made this trip so special for our family. The fires we made, the stories we told, the rocks we threw... It took me a long time to finish this series - perhaps I wasn't ready for it to be over.

Thirteen days of adventure with my husband and kids - time and money well spent. We moved to the other side of the world to create space in our lives for rich and meaningful memories. This trip was everything we had hoped it would be. It wasn't perfect (good stories always involve a bit of "conflict") but it was exactly right. Thankful for this journey we are on. 

You can read the complete series, check out the interactive map or pick a link below.
I hope this will be a helpful resource for folks interested in seeing a bit more of this beautiful country we currently call home.
