One of my goals on The Atlas Heart is to break down travel misconceptions or judgments about places and ideas. Perhaps it could be that destination that everyone warns you not to visit because of how dangerous it is, or maybe you yourself had preconceived notions that were proven wrong once you arrived to where you were going.
My aim is to present a variety of different opinions and experiences through the eyes of other travelers. It’s important to hear travel stories from all different perspectives in life, I call it seeing the world through a kaleidoscope lens.
New Zealand is the land of natural beauty. It’s a country that draws people from all over the world who want to experience nature at its finest. There are so many outdoor activities and adventures to go on it will make your head spin with wonder at the possibilities as soon as you set down in the country.
There’s something about a good city view. I love looking at skylines and seeing what the city maze looks like from above. It gives you a whole new perspective on a place and sometimes even makes you stand back in awe at the city planners, architects, and designers that created such an intricate place that is a city.
Most people experience the largest city in New Zealand upon entry into the country, but I flew straight from tropical Queensland to Wellington and started working full-time. I didn’t get to experience Auckland for myself until my very last week in New Zealand.
