End of Our RV Roadtrip in New Zealand with Kids

Today, our RV roadtrip in New Zealand with kids comes to an end. We have to drop off the RV. After a thorough check of the RV, we luckily found everything in good condition. From the rental company, we took a taxi back to Auckland to check into our hotel. We chose the same hotel where we started our trip 4 weeks ago. We spent our day relaxing, strolling around town, and having a wonderful lunch. In the evening, we decided to go to the movies. Despite not understanding English, the kids loved watching Happy Feet Two.

Last Day in New Zealand

This is it, our last day in New Zealand with kids. We have had the time of our lives; the feeling of freedom, spending so much time together, and enjoying all the beauty New Zealand has to offer. Our trip was definitely amazing. As much as we dislike going home, there is always an upside. My sister is pregnant with her first baby. She is almost due, and I really hope to see her pregnant once more before she goes into labor.

We spent our last day at the harbour; looking at all the boats, having lunch, and enjoying one last glass of New Zealand wine in the sun. The rest of the day was spent buying all the things we needed for the flight and our stop-over, and starting to pack our bags. As we had way too much hand luggage on our flight to New Zealand, we wanted as little hand luggage as possible on our way back. It feels good to have our hands free to help the kids when needed. The kids both have their own “trunki”, a little suitcase with wheels on which they can sit as well. We went to bed early that night. Tomorrow, we will leave for Amsterdam, but first, we will have a stop-over in Taipei.

Tips & Tricks for Travelling in New Zealand with Kids

  • Make sure the last day before you fly isn’t a very busy one, a relaxed start of your flight is important
  • When it’s raining in Auckland or you are looking for an indoor activity: go to the movies
  • The trunki is awesome when you are travelling with kids ages 3 and up
