Welcome to the New Zealand travel blog where you can read about the real New Zealand, as experienced by real people, not hobbits! who will give you the absolute inside word on all the cool stuff you can find here!
So who's doing the blogging? Well it's going to be quite a mix of folks, from born-and-bred New Zealanders (or "kiwis" as they're known in these parts) to a few 'imports' (folks that have moved here from elsewhere in the world and now call New Zealand home). We've also got some Regional Tourism Operators on board (how official!) to keep you up to date with what's happening across the country.
