A New Zealand Bucket List

Whatever you’re looking for on this trip, there is something for everyone here. If you’re an adrenaline junkie you can skydive and bungee jump, if you’re into watersports you can river board or kayak, if you love to hike there are some world-class trails across both islands, if relaxing is your thing there are hidden hot springs and ocean cruises, or you can try and do it all like I did!

    1. I was there a long time ago! I’m starting this blog from the very beginning. I spent a year in New Zealand and it was one of the best years of my life, I fell in love with that perfect country and I wish I could go back.
