Road Trip Chronicles – Wendelton Guinea Pig Village

wendelton guinea pig village

Last month, Phillip and I went to Queenstown for a friend’s wedding. I hadn’t really been to the South Island before our trip to Dunedin at the start of the year, so we figured we  may as well make a road trip out of it.

Our first stop was Nelson, where we had breakfast with my dad at Morri Street Café, before heading to the Wendelton Guinea Pig Village at the Eyebright Country Store.

I had so much fun at the guinea pig village; I took photos and videos, and even got to feed the guinea pigs (you can get some free guinea pig food from the store), I might have been a little over excited…

I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from our visit with you so you get to experience the cuteness as well.
