What makes a good family trip

#1 . A skillful non-F1 driver

A take-it-easy pace of driving and not rushing from one itinerary to another. The Sabathier family had made a basic plan of the trip route but they play-by-ear as they move along, spending longer stopovers at places they like and adjusting their itinerary accordingly as they travel.

 

#2 . A fun-loving family

This is definitely a great opportunity for bonding, setting aside their studies and work schedules and have some fun together.

 

#3 . Adventurous kids

…. and kids will always be kids, it’s just natural to unleash the spirit of adventure and be themselves.

#4 . An official family photographer

Everywhere they go, they are surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Monia just wished that she had better photography skills as the pictures just don’t do justice to the beautiful sights there.

#5 . A great campervan that can house 4 good and happy people

The Sabathier family chose a 6 berth campervan – Maui River,  for its spaciousness and good interior facilities.

It was one of their unforgettable trips and they have met some likewise families at holiday parks, mingling and chatting with them over  NZ’s reputable wine.  Thank you Stephane, Monia, Dorian and Mayleen for their photos.

Checklist!

How many of these have you not done in your travels. These 3 adventurers, Panny, Christy and Caitlin, have experienced many “Firsts” during their  trip to New Zealand in their campervan.

 

Checklist  #1. Driving a campervan/motorhome

They have chosen Britz Venturer Plus  as it does not have a high top, making it easier to handle the vehicle and being petite in sizes, they just need a 2 adults -plus-1-child-configuration.

 

Checklist  #2. Snowboarding down Cardrona ski slope

These ladies chose to park their campervan at Pine Trees carpark, and took the Cardrona shuttle bus to the ski area. Cardrona Alpine Resort is between Wanaka and Queenstown.

Checklist  #3. Surrounded by snow-capped mountians

Walking the Hooker Valley Track, Mount Cook National Park.

Lake Mattheson – Worth a visit when going to Fox Glacier

Checklist  #4. Spotting wildlife in their natural habitat

Checklist  #5. Witnessing whales in the wild doing their thing

Double bonus for them as dusky dolphins came in schools to greet them at Kaikoura.

Checklist  #6. Adrenalin rushing sky dive

Checklist #7 rent a campervan from Driveacampervan.com

The World’s Steepest Street

Introducing the world’s steepest street – “Baldwin Street”. It’s just a quiet residential suburb in Dunedin, NZ South island. But not so quiet in the month of July every year. The Cadbury Jaffa race is held there annually, releasing loads of chocolate candies down the slope for charity. An amazing sight and fun too. Park your ‪#‎campervan‬ elsewhere and walk up the slope to test your fitness.
