Mountain Dweller

New Zealand

I was in country for half a year, thanks to a study abroad program through my university, and traveled solo the last month of my time there. Christchurch held a certain sentiment; my host family was based there and throughout my time there I became more and more connected to the devastation caused by the earthquakes there. To this day, I swear by spending your last dime in this country due to it’s variety of terrain and adventure offered, from city exploration to wild country…every square inch is a pleasure.
