ROAD TO QUEENSTOWN

 The road to Queenstown included giant mountains, sunny Lake Hawea, a lunch picnic and many "we need to pull over!" unplanned photo ops because LOOK AT THIS TINY BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY.

We were told that road tripping all of New Zealand in only 3 weeks was overly ambitious and that we'd have to spend too much time just driving to fit it all in. The pace ended up being completely relaxed and enjoyable mostly because the driving itself was the best part. Within a period of 3 hours in New Zealand you'll see snowcapped mountains, rugged coasts, gorgeous lakes and sheep covered countrysides. It might sound ridiculous, but it makes you actually appreciate EARTH on this whole other level.

With all our time on the road we curated a solid road-trip soundtrack and here are some of our favorites:

Odesza - Say My Name (feat. Zyra)

D'Angelo- Sugah Daddy

SBTRKT, Ezra Koenig - New Dorp, New York

Flight Facilities, Giselle - Crave You

Bahamas - Don't You Want Me

Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino - Break Your Heart Right Back

Fleetwood Mac - Secondhand News

George Ezra - Budapest

Chet Faker - Gold

Jamie T - Zombie

...these are good for a long drive where you can roll down your window and note how lucky you are that you're not one of these guys.
