We got the majority of our vaccinations in the USA. However, two of the recommended vaccinations – the rabies pre-exposure shots and the Japanese encephalitis vaccine – were very expensive in the USA. I’m talking EXPENSIVE – $1,775 total for just these 2 vaccines! And that isn’t including the hundreds of dollars we spent on other vaccines. So… the solution? Get them done in Asia!
And of course, prime selfie moment outside the Hospital for Topical Diseases in Bangkok Thailand!
The picture above of Doubtful Sound says it all. New Zealand has endless beauty and diverse scenery all on two small(ish) islands. If you've ever questioned if it's worth it or not to make the trip, let us tell you: it is. Start building that bucket list! You can also see more of our pictures from the South Island here and the North Island here.
