New Zealand is one of my favourite countries in the whole world, so much so that I've been living here for almost a year now on a working holiday visa. I've worked and lived in both Kaikoura on the South Island and in Wellington on the North Island and had the wonderful opportunity to travel all around the country, hiking and exploring as much as possible.
New Zealand is the ultimate outdoor destination, with so much incredible beauty and adventure packed into the two islands that make up the nation.
Click on the regions below to view the blog posts about that region - from hiking recommendations, city guides, road trip routes and plenty of other stories to fuel your imagination and your trip planning.
Below the map, you'll find all the blog posts that relate to the country as a whole or aren't specific to just one region.
Enjoy reading - I've loved putting all these words and photos together.
