Dunedin Street Art

Dunedin Street Art

A 10 Day New Zealand North Island Itinerary

A 10 Day New Zealand North Island Itinerary

New Zealand is one of those smaller countries that seems easy to visit in a week or two. The problem is, there is so much to do and see here that if you try to see the whole country in that time, you will spend all your time travelling and not much time seeing and...
