We Explored the Scenic New Zealand by KiwiRail Train

KiwiRail New Zealand

KiwiRail had been one of my Wanderlist for some time.

When you travel with me, you will get to know my obsession with trains. My friends have heard things like “If the train is an option, let’s take train” or “If it’s not an option, let’s make it an option” Yes, I am like Sheldon (especially the annoying parts), though he is into facts and toy trains while I am more into taking pictures in front of them and scenic rides. So, I am kinda super excited that I am going to take another ride this month, more on that soon. For now, let me share one of my joy ride, The Northern Express by Kiwirail.

This KiwiRail trail is a 10-hour New Zealand scenic train ride stretched from Auckland to Wellington. It took us through the most breathtaking journey I had experienced in my entire life. I saw herds of sheep and cows, snow mountains, rocky beach, farmlands, and the country side. To top it all off, it was one gorgeous day.

So every time we bought a hot drink from the KiwiRail “restaurant” inside the train, they gave us this chocolate coated marshmallow. So yum! I stole Fafa’s as well.

We also spotted the cutest Kiwi and decided to pack her back with us. She is now hanging out in front of the fridge.

KiwiRail train has its own canteen cart, complete with a dining area, where I hung out most of the time because I wanted to eat something or another most of the time.

I feel so lucky to be able to experience KiwiRail journey.

Do include KiwiRail in your itinerary when you travel to New Zealand. I was in a state of joy for 10 hours. It was definitely the highlight of our first ever trip to New Zealand.
