New Zealand is a country of rare seismic beauty: glacial mountains, fast-flowing rivers, deep, clear lakes, hissing geysers and boiling mud. There are also abundant native forests, long, deserted beaches and a variety of fauna, such as the kiwi, endemic to its shores. Any number of vigorous outdoor activities - tramping (hiking), skiing, rafting and, of course, that perennial favourite, bungy jumping - await the adventurous. You can swim with dolphins, gambol with newborn lambs, whale-watch or fish for fattened trout in pristine streams and rivers.

Thu, 9 Feb 2023 | By nomad_kiwis | Views [241]

The thought of a new year, new adventures, new travels, new rides, was soul lifting but as we float (literally) on into the second month of 2023 I realise that someone forgot to tell the weatherman/person that it is now summer. Now of course I'm speaking ... Read more >

Mount Aspiring! As the "Matterhorn of the South," the name alone draws me. I'm always aspiring to do things and to accomplish huge goals. I've never regarded myself as a technical climber, but I've climbed a number of "walk-up" mountains including Mt.... Read more >
