New Zealand: How to see the North Island
New Zealand is my home. I’m a proud Kiwi (not a kiwifruit!) and I love to travel around my own country as much as I love to scoot off overseas.
New Zealand is a little country, but not so little you can see it all in a week. It’s about the size of California or the UK, so trying to see too much will just wear you out. I have some great posts here covering how to long to visit the North and South Islands, plus I delve into some great places to eat in my favourite towns, our iconic festivals and some great wineries to try.
Have a look around :D
