Happy new year, guys! Want to start the year with something that will hopefully make you smile—the third and final vlog in my New Zealand travel series. (You can watch the video below and read the first and second entries here.)

This video pretty much sums up all that Nico and I did and went through during our amazing vacay in New Zealand. If you’re thinking of making a trip, go do it! Our trip covered the South Island and we ended up going to Kaikoura, Christchurch, Wanaka, and Queenstown. If you want some tips, here’s a list of stuff to do, places to see, and things to eat.
