5 New Zealand Musts

This is a brief view of my waking dreams that could be added to your own bucket list. Let’s be real: we want to go everywhere!


  1. Glow Worm Caves (photo above by:  Backpacker Guide )

These beautiful caves can be found on a number of the islands, locations available on Backpacker Guide’s blog here or above.

2. Milford Sound (photo: Hand Luggage Only )


Located on New Zealand’s South Island, Milford Sound is a glacier-carved, postcard picture of heart-stopping waterfalls and mountains and can be seen by the Milford Track, a hiking trail, by a boat cruise, or sea kayaking for those inclined.
