When traveling (or living) in New Zealand, a country whose largest export is tourism, it can be daunting to sift through all of the stuff there is to do. JUMP OFF THIS! ZIP DOWN THAT! FISH OVER HERE! Tramp, bike, fly, swing, and soar over there! (And now we’ve just summed up Queenstown.) There is a lot of tourism in New Zealand that, from me, elicits major eye roll.
That being said, when we were up on the North Island last week, we did three major touristy things. And because I did some homework, they were all freaking awesome!
