Inspired by some clever people over at Teehan+Lax Labs who created Google Street View Hyperlapse, I decided to relive my first year traveling around New Zealand and living out of my car, but this time without leaving my desk!
There are so many places off the beaten track that are worth exploring, and sometimes the only way to get there is to have your own wheels. If you're thinking about an extended trip around the country and have the cash, it's definitely worth buying a vehicle. Even if you can't afford to buy something, try and get a couple mates together and hire something for even a brief road trip. The freedom of exploring exactly where you want to go will be well worth the effort.
Car? Campervan? Motorbike? Nah, try a rocket!
Hold on tight, it's gonna be a hell of a ride.
Enjoy your travels!
