It’s pretty well known that I’m a huge Lord of the Rings fan. That is not the only thing I’m passionate about though. I’m very lucky to live in a country that indulges my hobbies on a daily basis. The icing on the cake is the amazing events held in New Zealand throughout the year. Here are a few events coming up in New Zealand that I’m very excited about.
If you are planning a trip to New Zealand and share some of the same interests as me, I’d love to be your very own tour guide as we check out these awesome events as part of your overall New Zealand vacation.
