Tongariro National Park is the oldest national park in New Zealand, but you may recognize it for a separate claim to fame — its Mount Ngauruhoe is Mount Doom in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. While a must-see for film fans, it also offers attractive activities for outdoorsmen and adventurists, with three volcanoes, skiing and snowboarding. © Benkrut | Dreamstime.com

Top 5 / Australia

New Zealand is known for its natural beauty above all else and the top five places you must see when visiting the North and South islands are:

 

Milford Sound, Fiordland

The Milford Sound is on the Southern Island and is the best known of the fiords. It is road accessible and close to the ocean, which means travelers can cruise the fiord to open water and back within a few hours.

 

Waitomo Glowworms Cave 

The glowworms are native to New Zealand and you can access the light by taking a quiet boat ride into the glowing grotto of Waitomo.

 

Waipoua Forest

This forest on the north island contains the largest remaining Kauri trees. The forest itself is one of the best examples of a Kauri tree forest in New Zealand. The Kauri tree is an ancient evergreen species that existed since the Jurassic period, but can now only be found in the Southern Hemisphere.

 

Tongariro Alpine Crossing

This alpine crossing is a UNESCO World Heritage site and an ideal hiking experience for those visiting New Zealand North Island. Located in the Tongariro National Park, this area is a dual heritage site for its significance for the Maori people, as well as its natural beauty.

 

The Southern Lights (South Island)

When visiting New Zealand’s South Island, keep in mind it is one of the best places to view the Southern lights. Check out your chances of seeing the Aurora during your visit here ().

 

The list goes on, but these are just a few of the highlights.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

What is CBD?

Quietly on the rise is the cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. THC is the more well-known component of cannabis; however, it is illegal in many states, so CBD has risen in popularity as a legal option. Stores selling CBD continue to pop up in major cities and towns.
