Ever since Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick became an official item one year ago, the athlete power couple has traveled the world to escape the daily pressures of daily life. The only catch is they have to wait until the Green Bay Packers quarterback is done with his NFL season.
So while the Los Angeles Rams get ready to play the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta — a game Rodgers would definitely like to play in — the two took some time to avoid the cold Wisconsin winter and enjoy New Zealand together.
Although Rodgers was named to another Pro Bowl after completing 62 percent of his passes for 4,442 yards with 25 touchdowns and just two interceptions, the 6-foot-2 signal caller decided to skip the glorified showcase game in Orlando and take his retired NASCAR and Indy Car-driving girlfriend abroad.
So what did they do on their New Zealand vacation? Well, a lot.
After using “helicopters like cars” to get to an amazing and “very remote lunch location,” the 35-year-old Rodgers and 36-year-old Patrick hit the water on a kayak.
“He took me to the waterfall! ….and did most of the paddling! It looks like the water drops off in the distance but it’s flat all the way out to the ocean,” she wrote on Instagram. “Quite beautiful in Milford sound. Take some time to get out in nature! I know it’s really cold in some places, so even just opening up the curtains and letting natural light in can lift your mood. #earthing”
Then, of course, Patrick went bungee jumping.
“I am scared of heights… So the most logical thing I could think of to help get over that – was bungee jump,” she posted. “It didn’t work. But, I just like to know that if I had to do something uncomfortable, I sure as shit could. Mind over matter.”
And when it was all said and done, the couple jumped into the water together for a classic Instagram picture.
In the last year, the couple has traveled to India to visit the Dalai Lama, Hawaii, England, Zambia, and Lake Tahoe before this romantic getaway.
Needless to say, it must be nice being the Packers quarterback and retired race car driver because these vacations aren’t too shabby at all.
