New Zealand

Overview map of New Zealand

Taking advantage of the long break my company provides between Christmas and New Years, I will fly halfway around the world and explore the beautiful scenery and experiences that the country of New Zealand has to offer. For over two weeks I will enjoy summer when it is winter in the northern hemisphere, and jaunt all over the island. Hopefully I will avoid encountering hobbits.
