New Zealand

On February 11th, 2017 Ariel and I left New Jersey on a two week adventure in New Zealand. This journey, the inspiration for this site, was one of the most incredible experiences of our lives. Here you can find recap posts as well as guides and reviews of some of the unreal things we saw and experienced.
