New Zealand has to be one of my favourite countries. I may be biased as I lived there for 3 years but I believe it has everything. A great culture, friendly people and the most incredible landscapes in the world.
I lived in Franz Josef a small town on the West Coast of the South Island. I worked for Glacier Helicopters, a company that provided scenic flights over the Franz Josef glacier to tourists. It was one of the best jobs I ever had (until COVID came along and ruined that!).
I spent a month travelling around the South Island after my first year there and have taken many weekend trips since. With the natural beauty New Zealand has to offer, hiking was high up on the list of things to do whenever I could. The huts in New Zealand are incredible to stay in!
