- North Island (1998)
You can’t just “pass by” New Zealand. First of all, it’s way down there–next to little else. And once you get there, you may never want to leave. Why? Because it’s Mother Nature’s freakin’ backyard, that’s why. It’s the home of the best sauvignon blanc, and most hospitable family run hostels. It’s also sheep central!
Tip: See New Zealand by car, and stay in their amazing, homey, hostels.
