Almost everyone you meet has traveling on their bucket list. For some people, a bucket list is a list of things they just have to do no matter what but for others, it’s just a few things they’d like to do. If you’re here and reading this, we’re going to assume that you’re the former kind of person. If you’re passionate about travelling and seeing beautiful places in the world, then you need to check out New Zealand very soon.

Australia is amazing and if you’ve already been there, you might be telling yourself that you’ve seen it all. The truth is that New Zealand might be part of the Australian continent but it’s not actually a part of Australia as a country. This small island a little south of Australia is a world of its own that you should explore whenever you can. Mapping Megan talk about some of the reasons why you should check out New Zealand on her website.

If you love nature and wildlife, you should already be ecstatic about New Zealand for it has some wild life that you won’t see anywhere else in the world. For starters, have you ever heard of the Kea Parrot? Or perhaps the very rare Kakapo? Did you know that there was once an Eagle large enough to hunt livestock and possibly humans here once?

Well, the eagle’s long gone so you’ll be safe while out exploring the natural wonders of New Zealand. In addition to the scenery and the wildlife, there are some phenomena that you’ll only see here. There are caves and beaches that glow and then there are boulders that look like they fell from space.
