My First Roadtrip in New Zealand

How blessed am I that I got to go on a roadtrip on my 4th day and first weekend in New Zealand. Destination? Cape Palliser Lighthouse.

First, we stopped in a farmer’s market in Lower Hut. 

It was chilly and windy so sipping coffee here was really nice after buying some fruits. 

Next stop was in Kaitoke Regional Park where I got to see this unbelievably beautiful Stuart Macaskill Lakes. 

Next stop was the Rimutaka Crossing. 

Very windy!

Then the Lake Ferry. 

We also made a quick stop in Martinborough for these amazing views.

Then there’s the Cape Palliser Bay. 

I got to drive right handed for the first time. Beautiful short drive for me! 

Finally, we arrived in Cape Palliser Lighthouse. It was quite a climb but when I got to the top? 

Here are the amazing views!!! So worth it!

How can I not look back?

Cape Palliser is just beautiful! Amazingly beautiful! 

Before heading back to Wellington, we had my first decent and expensive (LOL) meal in this cute little town of Martinborough.

Then we made a quick stop at Queen Elizabeth Park and Henley Lake in Masterton.

What an awesome weekend! New Zealand is just unbelievably beautiful that the photos don’t even need any editing. I haven’t seen much and I already love New Zealand! ❤️❤️❤️
