I met awesome people from all over the world. Most being Japanese or Brazilian.
I also had time to visit the nature in the north island, highlights being coromandel with the hot water beach, Hobbiton (The scenery used for the hobbits in Lord of the Rings and the new movie The Hobbit) bay of islands, 90 miles beach and the beach near piha in the west with black sand!
South Island definitely has beautiful nature and Queenstown is certainly the city of Adrenaline :)
First Commercial Bungee Jump in the World Kawarau Bridge in Queenstown
Canyon Swing near Queenstown - one of the most entertaining and thrilling overall activity I have done in my life :)
Except perhaps for skydiving in Queenstown =)
