    Rolling up the roads of Oz's East Coast
    Unlucky for me, Mum blessed me with her fair skin and freckles. But still Australia's hot sun and beautiful beaches beckon me over. My ultimate roadie plan would be to pack the basics; togs, towel, singlet, shorts a pair of jandals AKA thongs and of course the sunscreen and boyfriend for a weekend of ultimate cruising in the hot hot sun.  Fly to OZ from NZ, starting in Brisbane, stopping in at the beaches along the way for a dip, careful not to touch... read more

    Western Aussie
    Had a fab first time camper van trip with Apollo last winter traveling from Perth to Darwin. We did thousands of kms and just loved it. We are now keen to have a go in NZ as the conditions are different weather and road wise, and maybe eventually buy our own van. Loved the Ford Transit van it was perfect!!!!! read more

    My partner has been doing up our house for the last 13 months and we have been trying to scrape together enough funds to go on a Big Holiday for a while now. Renovating is very expensive and we have been looking at hiring an Apollo camper van to have an amazing road trip and break from all the stresses of trying to finish the house. We have talked about going to New Zealand soo much and this holiday would truly be... read more

    New zealand engagement
    We planned our first overseas trip together to new Zealand as we both loved the country! We decided to drive around both islands in 2 weeks. Flying into Wellington and driving the north island clockwise but only going as far north as rotarua. What an adventure this was! We saw so many sights and to top it off a helicopter flight over rotarua lake  where my now husband proposed!!! Continuing our journey as fiancé was amazing and so much fun... read more

    Exploring NZ - North to South Island
    We have always wanted to visit New Zealand. Having a 17 month old toddler we decided it would be great to hire a campervan so that we could see it at our own pace in a home away from home. First stop in our Apollo Motorhome was Hot Water Beach on the coast. I’m sure we gave the locals a chuckle digging for warm water at high tide. It was only on our way back to the camper that we... read more

    Pinky's Pep-up
    My husband has been working insane hours over the last few months, to co-ordinate the relocation of his organistaion following an amalgamation. He suffers from arthritis and desperately needs an opportunity to rest and relax. His first trip to New Zealand was in August 2010 and he LOVED it.  Unfortunately we had to choose between the Queenstown area and a trip around the marlborough wine district.... the next trip will be all about Marlborough! New Zealand is easy to drive and absolutely beautiful. ... read more

    still dreaming
    With all four kids loaded in the camper (2 are his and 2 are mine), we're off for our first full family holiday. Usually, we take two cars to go anywhere together so this is really exciting to think we won't only travel in the cool camper but we will also live out of it for the next week.  Better still,  I also get a holiday from driving as Rick is keen to get behind the wheel. Out of Rotorua and... read more

    Ft. Fort Lauderdale to Orlando
    For our 25th wedding anniversary my wife Robyn and I (Tony) spent 7 weeks travelling the USA. One of our legs in the journey was our cruise from Ft. Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas after which we hired a car and drove from Ft. Fort Lauderdale to Orlando along Route 441. Driving on the right-hand side of the road was strange to start with, especially going to the poassengers side of the car instead of the drivers side, getting use... read more
