We traveled to New Zealand for our first time last spring and became forever enchanted with this landscape. The fact that most of Lord of the Rings was filmed here is enough reason to visit, but there’s so much more than what you even see in the movies. Fjords, mountains, glaciers, rainforests, jungles, beaches, rivers, canyons…you name it, NZ has it. On the north island it’s warm and tropical, while the south island is rugged and mountainous. While we only had three weeks here, Hannah spent 6 months exploring this incredible place! Even so, she can’t wait to go back, and neither can we.
