    ... fields to beaches with sand that was soft as feathers. I’ve seen amazing plant life from a native palm tree that takes 20 years before they ever even form a trunk to silver ferns which are one of New Zealand’s national emblems.

    All of the people in our group are so interesting as well. We have 3-4 certified divers; one of whom is a PADI instructor. He is an older man and has had one of the ...

    ... little town where the buildings were made of wood and painted white, and we had a short but pleasant evening exploring the town in good weather before the sun went down. The following morning it was pelting down with rain. Unperturbed and wanting to make the most out of NZ, we embarked on a 15km walk back to the mainland before catching a different ferry back to the centre of Russell ...
