INTERNeX New Zealand: Our Experience of New Zealand

Me (Yoran), Joyce and Esmerlin have been here for about 6 months now, and believe it or not, we have less than 6 weeks left in this BEAUTIFUL country 😥 I am using this blog to show you guys the three most amazing experience of this country!

It all started with us leaving our home-country, the Netherlands! We had a 30 hour flight ahead of us, which was killing. But we were extremely happy to finally arrive in the country we would spend the next 7 months or our lives!

One of the first things we did, and in my opinion one of the most amazing things we have done was the skydive up in Paihia, Bay of Islands. We went there together with Stray and some of our INTERNeX participants and had a great weekend!

Both me and Joyce had the chance to travel through the South Island of New Zealand. To anyone who is doubting or who is not doing it at all: CHANGE YOUR MIND AND DO IT! It is insanely beautiful. You can do and see so much fun stuff there! For instance go and do the first commercial bungy in the world by AJ Hackett (this is what Joyce did), go on a dolphin and whale safari, or visit the amazing Milford Sound!

Esmerlin went with Kiwi Experience through the North Island and had an amazing time as well! Hot Water Beach, Sailing Trip, White water rafting, Bush walks and much much MUCH more great things!

I think that the three of us agree if I say that auckland in general was the best thing that has happened to us! First of all, the city is just great. Beautiful buildings, great nightlife, easy to get anywhere, it basically has anything that a person needs. Not to mention the amazing people that we met here! I can truly say that we have made new friends for life! If any of us had the choice of doing it again, i don’t think anyone of us three would doubt, and would say ‘YES’ immediately!
