We took the Overlander
a train from Wellington to Auckland and back.
Some of the prettiest country you’d ever want to see.
The cable car is a must do (though a little pricey).
We took it up and then walked back down
which cut the total cost in half.
One of the tricks to seeing multiple countries on a budget
is taking advantage of flight offers.
To go to Australia, we flew Air New Zealand.
They offered a free stay over in New Zealand on the way through.
