New Zealand

It is easy to spend a long time on the road without realising what you have at home! After being in New Zealand now for almost 5 months, it is again time for me to put my pack on a head out again. I have put some photos in that sum up my few months in this amazing country!
THe next month will be spent in Sweden followed by two weeks in the US before 3.5 months in South America, I will be updating the blog when I can along the way...until then!

I just want to say that I really love this website and I love this blog and I love New Zealand! I love meeting new people and love chatting on blogs and so I have made my own blog, its for people for Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland. It is called 'Experience - New Zealand' and is my first blog, it is unlike this blog but is also a lot of fun - checkout: (
