The Kiwi Experience is an awesome hop on, hop off backpacker bus which transports travellers far and wide across beautiful New Zealand. In 2007 i spent a month in NZ, using the bus to move through both the countries north and south island.  It has a reputation of being a bit of a party bus, and to an extent that wasnt too far from the truth, but inbetween those fun times we saw some pretty amazing things, all with the aid of our wicked driver/guide Scotty.  These are my own pictures taken from my trip around the south island, i hope they make good viewing.  Click on the images to enlarge them.
