Travel Tales: Hiking New Zealand

After graduating from college, I called the islands of New Zealand home for seven months. It was a time defined by apples, glaciers, beards, backpacks, mountains, beaches and unforgettable images and memories. It took me from Auckland to Christchurch, Wanaka to Oban, Wellington to Napier, and to all parts in between.


My friend and I pose for a photograph during our visit to Tongariro National Park (I'm on the left). Mt. Ngauruhoe, which was used as Mt. Doom in the Lord of the Rings movies, looms in the background.
