New Zealand is one of those countries that many Australians never visit. After all, we've got everything that New Zealand has, only bigger and better - right??
For some insane reason I'd never been to New Zealand. When I was finally lured across the Tasman by cheap flights, I was greeted by a country that is amazingly diverse and has an embarrassment of natural beauty. While Australia is vast and beautiful, New Zealand is like an extra concentrated version.
