Responsible travel is all about leaving a positive impact on both the environment as well as the people who live in the gorgeous places that we choose to visit. These days, the term ‘eco-toursim’ is a buzzword often thrown into any travel brochure to reel in the new generation.
While we often pick a place to travel based on the destinations, the iconic attractions, and the Insta-worthy monuments, our experiences are ultimately determined by the quirky and unforgettable people we meet along the way.
Although I hate the word, I am a ‘millennial’. Born in the early 90’s, I grew up with a Tamagotchi in one hand and an NSYNC album in the other. Along with some questionable style trends, I also grew up in the culture that encouraged travelling and experiencing as much as we can while we’re young.
The land of the Kiwis is often hyped as one of the most well travelled and photogenic places in the world, and for all the right reasons. Not only will the New Zealand photos rack up your Instagram likes, but it boasts some epic adventures to cross off your bucket list.
