The first country we visited during our around the world trip was New Zealand. And boy, did we fall in love! We walked beautiful trails, saw a lot of wildlife and cruised around in our rental campervan. In our five weeks of travel we took some great New Zealand pictures. Below are 20 of our favourites!
