And the itinerary continues! If you want to see our Week #1 schedule driving through New Zealand, head here before you get into this post. I'm going to end this one with Day 12 in Wellington, since it's the last place we hit in the North Island.
While still in Thailand, Rach and I got countless awesome recommendations from backpackers on Vietnam, our next destination after Thailand that we hadn’t exactly planned out. We consistently heard mentions of Hoi An, a small, tranquil place on Vietnam's central coast.
