Travel: New Zealand (South Island)

We traveled to New Zealand during Thanksgiving' 17. We did a road trip in South Island for 10 days. Our starting and ending point was Christchurch. Here is the route that we followed: Christchurch (1 day, 1 night), Kaikoura (1 day, 1 night), Greymouth (1 night), Fox and Franz Josef glaciers (1 day, 1 night), Queenstown (2 days, 3 nights), Fairlie (1 night), Christchurch (1 day, 1 night). We also spent a day cruising on Milford Sound, and a night on a cruise to Doubtful Sound. The scenery throughout the drive was breathtaking. We drove through mountains, by the ocean, and saw lush green meadows with sheep and cows and deer grazing. Met happy and very friendly people everywhere. It's hard to pick favorites from the trip, but we will always remember (i) swimming with dolphins in Kaikoura, (ii) the overnight cruise to Doubtful Sound, (iii) seeing penguins on the shore in Doubtful Sound, and (iv) eating delicious fresh ice-cream everywhere.
