Hi my name is Mark Perkins and I have a real passion for my country, New Zealand.

I want to share with you some of the great places to visit in New Zealand, things to see and do and give you helpful general information whether your on a campervan holiday in New Zealand, self driving in a rental car or traveling as part of an organised tour of this magnificent country.

I live in a bus that I am converting into a Motor Home. It is very much a “WIP’y”, a work in progress. The main problem with completing it, is that I love going away and exploring new places around the country. In both the North and South Islands of New Zealand.

I try and seek out some of the off the beaten track places that folk on organised tours never go to but are accessible by either car or Motor Home – Campervan.

My regular 9 – 5 job….. hmmm maybe I should say the job that pays my wages is a full commentary tour coach driver/guide, hence not realy 9 – 5 haha.

I strongly believe the knowledge and experience I have gained in my time in the above position and the love of my motor home and traveling, qualify me to offer help, advise and information on Aotearoa, New Zealand.
