A year and a half ago I took my first solo trip abroad to Vietnam and ended up meeting a ton of people from New Zealand, apparently that’s a place on the Kiwi travel circuit! After spending 2 weeks with them I was suddenly interested in visiting this country that they spoke so fondly of. To be completely honest, it had never crossed my mind to visit New Zealand before I met them. It always seemed like some unattainable country because it was just so far away. But once I decided to quit my job and travel for an extended period of time, this was the first country that made it on to the list!
Since I didn’t know much about New Zealand I had to figure out what I wanted to do and see once I got there.
