I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend traveling 600+ miles around the South Island with my lovely pal, Taylor. It was so fun for me to take her around to all of my favourite places and most of all, experience her reactions to the majestic beauty of New Zealand. She is studying abroad in Sydney this semester and is loving it! We both decided we are not going back to the States… I am excited to see her in November in Sydney! Needless to say, I easily feel a sense of home here in NZ already and cannot see myself NOT coming back here.
