New Zealand - Through the eyes of a homebound tourist.

First of all before I begin I would like to extend an apology in advance for my appalling english and grammar skills despite the fact that it is my one and only language!
I grew up in the Taranaki region of New zealand, I am proud to be 'naki born and have always loudly and proudly announced my New Zealand heritage to anyone who would listen. Despite my love of my country it had been four long years since I had stepped on kiwi soil until the 12th of last month. I went back to see family, have a break from work and uni and generally just chill out in a relaxing, calm atmosphere. But I ended up galavanting around like a tourist and loving every second.
4 years is a long time and cities change, whole architectural trends take over and before you know it, the town you grew up in is almost unrecogniseable. Almost.
I saw culture, adventure, nature, fauna, citylife, countrylife, snow, sun, rain and immense beauty all in the one location in a short amount of time. I saw all of this whilst also managing to hang out with family and catch up with old friends. I even managed to catch a viewing of my Nana's surfing skills - I wish I was as cool as she is!
I would recommend a trip to New Zealand to every single traveller! I saw NZ through a tourists eyes this time around and I can honestly say that I definately loved what I saw.
