New Zealand has been on my bucket list for a long time. As it’s on the other side of the globe from where I live, a trip requires a decent amount of time to be worth it. Unfortunately, with most normal day jobs it’s difficult to get off a month or more. But luckily, due to a change in my professional career, I had the unique opportunity to devote two months to exploring new Zealand’s South Island.
Why only the South Island? I decided to focus on the South Island as I wanted to explore the country in-depth, do a lot of hiking and not rush from location to location. In addition, I have one more reason to return one day :-)!
