Roughing & Luxuriating

Share


The Journey

Pete and Dalene from Hecktic Travels spent 17 incredible days exploring New Zealand's South Island in a maui motorhome.

We had a chat to this dynamic duo to find out where they went and what some of their highlights were as they discovered an idyllic balance between roughing it and luxuriating in it.
