New Zealand is a country full of endless natural beauty. Nature in New Zealand is unlike any other country due to its size and variety of wonders. When traveling in New Zealand, you can see glaciers and mountains in one day, and lakes, beaches, and waterfalls on the next (or even on the same day if you so desire!). You can walk through beautiful land with geothermal activity and walk through a redwood forest on the same day. From the tallest mountain (Mount Cook) to the biggest lake on the South Island (Lake Tekapo), it is merely a one hour drive. There are extraordinary sights to see wherever you venture, and you do not have to venture far. Everywhere you go is extraordinary, if you are truly looking.

The beauty of New Zealand, and the beauty of this Earth will never cease to amaze me to the utmost. I am constantly inspired to love everything that surrounds me and encourage others to do the same. The wonders and magnificence of this Earth keep me humble and thankful. With each passing day, and each new place I go, I am in awe. The Earth’s movements, sounds, colors, lines, shapes, light, and texture interact and create pure magnificence and beauty. She is incredible, and experiencing life in New Zealand has only helped me to love her more deeply and be thankful for every moment I experience, every breath I take, and every place I go.
