New Zealand is one of the ost sought-after destinations in the world. With its snow-capped mountains, ancient glaciers, rolling hills, and copius amounts of wine, it’s a destination unlike all others.


Tucked away in the corner of the world, it’s a country that requires some planning to visit. Flights here aren’t cheap, after all, and the country itself isn’t made for the budget traveler.

Yet even with that in mind, it’s a country I never get tired of visiting. New Zealand is worth every penny if you ask me.

While it has seen a boom in tourism in recent years, New Zealand is still the beautiful country I first visited many years ago.

Christchurch has recovered from its earthquakes and now a hip place to be; Wanaka is still an incredible place to go hiking; the glaciers were just as mind-blowing as ever; the forests still home to wonderful walks; and Kiwis just as fun and friendly as ever.
