THE BEST BEACH EXCEPT…(do not swim here)
We’re over halfway through our road trip around the South Island of New Zealand, and we’ve reached the untamed coast. AKA the west coast. AKA the wild west. It’s notoriously rugged and now that we’re here, we’re starting to understand why it has garnered such a reputation. Even our beach house came with a welcome and a warning: Extremely Dangerous, Do Not Swim In The Sea. 😲
Because there is something wild that happens between the Tasman Sea and the highest peaks in the Southern Alps. This week, we’re getting a taste of both. From the most dangerous beach we’ve ever seen to New Zealand’s fastest-moving glaciers.
As promised, here is one of our favorite climate resources. Project Drawdown conducts an ongoing review and analysis of practices and technologies that are able to reduce greenhouse gas concentrations in Earth’s atmosphere and also are 1) currently available, 2) growing in scale, 3) financially viable, 4) able to have a net positive impact, and 5) quantifiable under different scenarios.

What’s With The MAP?
This is a free website and app from Roadtrippers. It’s been our go-to app for discovering weird roadside attractions (hello Cano’s Castle) and wild places to camp (Trona Pinnacles). The free version is fantastic and packed with all the essential features. But, we have the Plus account because it’s better for an extended trip (like this one). Plus unlocks features like live traffic, notes for each stop, collaborating with friends, and offline maps (handy during the trip since the internet is intermittent).
