Journey to the West – Part 1 : From Christchurch to Hokitika.
We have gone down South, to the west coast of South New Zealand.

The entire way looked like this -
It was spectacular. Snow peaked mountains surrounded us as we made our way to our destination.
It was freaking cold, but we still couldn’t resist stopping by the road to get a picture together.
