Well, we've come to the end of this incredible journey. We are so grateful that we were able to experience what we most wanted: The unparalled beauty of New Zealand. We found the people to be very friendly and down to earth, too. We had no significant mishaps along the way, and despite a bit of bad weather here and there, we couldn't have hoped for a more wonderful honeymoon trip! So long until our next adventure!

Een trieste dag vandaag... nou ja triest... wel een dubbel gevoel.. de camper gaat worden ingeleverd. In de ochtend pakken we alle tassen in en ruimen de camper op. Dumpen de laatste restjes en rijden richting Auckland. We stoppen nog bij een Nederlands winkeltje maar de belevenis is niet heel Nederlands. Lunchen met uitzicht op de luchthaven van Auckland. Rond 14u geven we de sleutel af en onze laatste rit is naar ons hotel in de buurt wat ook dichtbij de AirPort is. Hier internetten we wat, lopen nog naar de winkel en bestellen we dominos pizza! Morgen verlaten we New Zealand..... wie van onze familie zal hier nog eens terug komen?? Ik ben benieuwd... een prachtig land met ongelofelijk mooie landschappen. Je moet het gezien hebben :-) Maar verdomd ver van Nederland.

New Zealand 2017
Finally one of the most well-known spots in NZ, thanks to the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogy. Hobbiton draws its fame from the movies, and here you get to see the movie set used during the production of the LOTR movies. I liked the LOTR movies but never a die-hard fan. That said, it doesn't mean Hobbiton/Matamata isn't worth your money. To me, Hobbiton is like a more polished version of a NZ countryside. If you are tight on time and schedule, or do not wish to travel far to see what's good in NZ countryside, Hobbiton is a good place to be in. For photographers, it is also convenient to snap good pictures here to show to your friends what NZ is all about. The reality of road trips and photography is that, it is often not easy to capture insta-worthy pictures all the time. For example, 90% of the drive in South Island was very picturesque, but it doesn't necessarily mean every single shot you take looks good on the computer screen. Hobbiton would have saved travellers the trouble, as you get to capture good pictures here, while the scenery stays pretty close to what NZ really is.

In Love With Belgrade - New Year's 2018
I decided during this trip that we would do our best to come back to Serbia once a year. I fell absolutely head-over-heels for Belgrade. You only get to go to a place for the first time once, and this was exactly as amazing as I hoped.

Newcastle Upon Tyne
What. A. Day. We walked 10,000 steps before 9:00am on 15 minutes of sleep. I went Harry Potter crazy, cried at how beautiful London is, paid an absurd amount of money for a sandwich, accidently fell asleep taking a bath, dodged children throwing pop rocks in China town, ate noodles to celebrate the new year, got lost going to a comedy show, found a cat, and by the end of the night I fell asleep eating pizza and watching Sharktale on Netflix.
