This trip journal documents our 3 week honeymoon, where we RV’ed through New Zealand and stayed at RV parks (called “holiday parks” by the Kiwis a.k.a. New Zealanders). Then we went to Australia for five days. We used Kea Campers for renting our RV, a 2-berth campervan with shower/toilet included.
We hung out in Christchurch (Chch) because Qantas didn't get our luggage onto our connecting flight. They comped us NZ$200 for our two pieces of luggage and arranged to have our luggage shipped to our final destination of Christchurch. This would have been fine, had our luggage not shown up wet. Our clothes were wet and I had to put everything in the dryer, which was available at the holiday park we stayed at.
We ate at Sticky Fingers restaurant; the pizza was good. I tried the Cantabrian pizza (smoked chicken, cranberry, rosemary, brie, cashews, and mozzarella), and liked it. Then we went shopping at a grocery store called Countdown, and stocked up on essential for our campervan fridge. We stayed at Christchurch Top 10 Holiday Park, which gave us an excellent first impression of the holiday parks in NZ.
