  15. Steffineller says

    Great vid like always .You guys are so funny 😂 @10:06 min That’s so true that you guys always get unhealthy food recommendations. But what is traveling without yummy food ?❤️

  16. JessChillinAbout says

    Haha good old kiwi and Aussie rivalry 😅 I love sarcasm but always have to check I’m not offending anyone 🤔also that ice cream place I’ve never been to, that price sounded crazy!! I live 20mins north of Devonport 🤗

  17. Lori Uhacz says

  23. Don't Forget To Live says

    I wanna know what the Hum dinger of a breakfast iiiissss, haha

  24. Margot Love says

    I have to disagree with you when you say once you have done the tour there is ‘nothing left to see’. Dunedin is the best City in NZ!

  25. Lauren Mulcahy says

    Ok I hope u haven’t left Auckland yet! Firstly go to’s awesome! Secondly go to Best Ugly Bagel for breakfast. Maple iced coffee and the avocado, tomato bagel will blow your mind. It’s the first thing I get when I step off the plane in Auckland

  26. yochilloutbro says

    awesome vlog 👍✌😊

  27. Psychphuq says

    WoW… 21 Dollars, regardless of which Dollar, is a lot for ice-cream… (unless it's a > 1lt)
    I'm sure it was delicious though… 🙂

  28. Arbitrary Exploration says

    Beautiful! The best tours are provided by locals who know you. It is awesome that you have a friend, to show you around and give you a look at the local life.

  29. Georgia Wong says

    It better be good for the price that you paid for an ice cream! LOL

  30. Loz says

    As a Kiwi who has been overseas for 8 months it's so nice to see a little taste of home! Hope you're going to Christchurch!!

  31. Bianca Deschenes says

    I'm from Quebec, Canada. …. has anyone ever told you that you look like Alex Nevsky, he's a judge on La Voix Québec ( the voice )

  32. AnzacKiwiAstrix says

    Best way of putting it is the North Islands are the previews and the South Islands are the main show. enjoy it.

  33. Polkadot Passport says
