travel in new zealand

Without a doubt New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. There’s bubbling volcanoes, glittering glacial lakes, mountains and locals so friendly they make Londoners seem like dementors. The one drawback? The cost.

Regardless of the price, travel in New Zealand is something all backpackers/aspiring Frodos should experience. Whether it’s the fact that you can practically see the South Pole, or knowing that you are quite literally thousands of miles from the nearest London tube station, there’s something magical about New Zealand.  View Post

My new zealand highlights

1) Auckland
Whether it’s Matty throwing up off the bridge on his birthday, someone setting fire to the oven on my birthday, or Holly peeing against the bin outside Cafe Hanoi, I will always have amazing, if not slightly vague memories of Auckland. It’s the city where it all began. I arrived with no money, no friends, no home and no job, yet 5 months later I’m standing drunk on the street crying because it’s my last night there.
