GLOBAL DIRECTORY: NEW ZEALAND

No other country in the world has as much going for it as New Zealand.  Aptly named the adventure capital of the world, adrenaline junkies will get their fix jumping off bridges (we call it bungee jumping), jet boating through winding rivers, jumping out of planes, or crawling through networks of caves.
 
The people in New Zealand have earned a very positive reputation around the world for being down to earth and helpful.  
 
When it comes to wining and dining, you’ll find great food from all around the world as well as some incredible award-winning vineyards, craft breweries, and distilleries.
 
Culturally, the indiginous people of New Zealand, Maori, should be held in high regard as the tangata whenua – the original inhabitants of New Zealand.  New Zealand has a rich history with culture that travellers should aim to immerse themselves into.
 
If all that isn’t enough, New Zealand has truly epic landscapes scattered around every corner throughout the entirety of the country.  From the Bay of Islands in the North, to the Milford Sound in the south, you’ll constantly get to experience jaw dropping natural wonders – so bring your camera.
