We just got back from two weeks in New Zealand (I love the Chinese New Year holiday!)... so get ready! Lots of NZ pictures ahead.

(Spoiler alert: sheep.)

But first, to give you an overview of what went down, we spent 9 days on the South Island and 4 days on the North Island. With our trusty rental car and GPS, we explored, pulled over, wandered down side streets, and generally soaked in the gorgeousness.

Here's a mini video of our route over the 9 days we were in the South Island. The pauses are where we spent the night.

Not bad for 9 days, I must say.

(We have GPS data for the North Island as well, but with only 4 days, 2 of which we spent in Auckland and Hamilton, it's not as interesting a map.)
