New Zealand Dream

If there was one country I dreamed about visiting it was New Zealand. I’ll never forget hitting the “purchase” button when I booked the trip to be there for the 2015 Christmas season. One of the activities I had to partake in while in Auckland was jumping off the tallest building in the city, Sky Tower:


Yeah, I stared up at it for a couple of days before I did it! Then again, most people would be thinking about it before hurling themselves off a sixty-five story building?

No, I didn’t chicken out. Here’s me suiting up!


Auckland is such a fun city, and it’s surrounded by amazing islands, too. This is Tiri Tiri Matangi, which is advertised as a bird watching haven, but actually has a trail that circles the entire island. I practically had it to myself, and what a memorable hike!

My dreams of New Zealand are hardly satisfied. I’m looking for my next trip, and plan to make my first visit to Australia while I’m “in the area”!
