My Adventures in New Zealand

Written by Rama Thakur, December 2018

I feel fortunate that I got a chance to visit New Zealand. New Zealand is famous in the world for its incredible scenery, ranging from sweeping mountains to vast underground cave systems, gigantic glaciers, boiling hot springs, golden-sand beaches, rugged coastline and more. Most of the cities are affordable and have much more to explore as the country is packed with cool cities with hidden spots, wonderful wildlife, and more. In fact, there are so many things to do in New Zealand that cannot be mentioned in just one paragraph.

Dunedin, Invercargill to Queenstown

Queenstown is breath-takingly and unbelievably beautiful and Adventure Capital of New Zealand. Students studying at The University of Otago can find an endless amount of adventure awaiting you during your semester break with activities ranging from the iconic bungy jumping and jet boating, to quad biking, white water rafting, river surfing and more. there is something for everyone to do! A road trip from Invercargill to Queenstown is amazing as the Southern Scenic Route takes you to Te Anau, Tuatapere, Riverton, Bluff, Invercargill, The Caitlins and Balclutha as well as other small rural townships, as it weaves between Dunedin and Queenstown.

Lake Wakatipu

Queenstown, New Zealand


This four-season alpine town is settled on a bend of Lake Wakatipu, a Z-shaped monster that’s New Zealand’s longest lake. Rising sharply from the lake are jagged peaks, with one mountain range aptly named the Remarkable.

Don’t miss this Fergburger

Ferg Burger- Many of the travellers has hailed it as the world’s best BURGER and you need to order in advance. It is located at 42 Shotover St, Queenstown 9300, New Zealand. Trust me, you will not regret it.

Auckland, New Zealand

Located within walking distance of no more than 12 minutes from The University of Auckland and AUT University, students can definitely visit the Sky tower to have the best view of Auckland as a whole at its highest point which in my point of view is again one of the best experiences during my stay in New Zealand.

In summary, New Zealand is well known for its hospitality and food. That's all I have for now.

Till next time!
