New Zealand is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and a culture that welcomes everyone to experience it. My girlfriend and I are lucky enough to have spent the last 5 weeks traveling around this tiny country with our backpacks, a tent, and a small car. After being back home in California for less than a day, I already miss the sense of freedom that we so easily became accustomed to and I eagerly await whatever adventure awaits us next. I encourage everyone to take a chance and pay a visit to New Zealand at some point in their life – whether it’s for a few weeks or a few years, it will mold your life in ways you would have never imagined.
Below are a few photos out of the thousands that I took and I plan on uploading more over the next few days, most likely broken down into a North Island and South Island post. Enjoy some of my favorites from the trip and check back soon for more!
