New Zealand Adventures

Here are all my reviews from places in New Zealand. As I used to live in Auckland they are heavy on the Auckland recommendations hence I’ve broken Auckland into the different regions I had ventured to (yes I know, there are many, many more!). Down the page we have the further out than central Auckland and finally the in completely different areas of NZ reviews. One day when I’m more computer savvy this might be a map!
