Although I haven’t been to New Zealand, I hope to go one day. I have seen pictures and it looks absolutely beautiful. New Zealand is composed of two main islands. The capital Wellington is on the north island. The whole country is about the size of Colorado. The South island is about 10,000 miles smaller than the north island. There are 7 international airports and the bus system is the best way to get around if you don’t have a car. Most new zealanders, 75% live on the north island so it is about 3 times more populated. There are about 40 million sheep in New Zealand so there is a lot of lamb for food. On the North island there are geothermal oddities, as well as other cool natural features including beaches and volcanos. The South Island is more rugged and has the Southern Alps. The most popular surfing beaches are in the North island, where they are mostly traditional looking white- sand beaches. There are a ton of adventure sports in New Zealand like rafting, bungee jumping, jet boating, and zorbing. The people are said to be very nice and fun. I look forward to one day going to New Zealand! It would be great for my inner adventurer.
