New Zealand is a small country, with a population size of about four million people. Known for its spectacular natural wonders – from ancient glaciers, towering fiords, lush rainforests, geothermal activity, golden sand beaches, rolling green hills and a plethora of flora and fauna species – it’s easy to see why the country is such a popular tourist destination.
 

New Zealand covers two main islands, both offering completely different sights and landscapes. I am currently living amidst Lord of the Rings territory – Queenstown, which is also famous for its adrenaline-pumping activities and brilliant winter snow sports.
 

The weather varies throughout the regions, and the seasons are quite dramatic – especially in the South Island. Central Otago turns into a golden paradise in autumn, and a winter wonderland just a few months later.
