Heading through the South Island in New Zealand was an incredible experience and should be on everyone’s road trip travel list.

I have traveled the South Island before on a bicycle five years ago, but not in a motorhome.

We stopped at the popular destinations such as Mt Cook, Wanaka, Queenstown and Milford sound. These places are popular for good reason they are absolutely stunning.

I bought my camera and water housing along on this trip and put it to good use in Dunedin. Once we met up with local surf named JC, we put on our thick wet suits and swam out for a surf session. The water was cold at around 10 degrees with an air temperature at 5 degrees. Luckily the sun was out which made it a little be easier to jump in. We got some great waves and photos at two surf spots around Dunedin.
