“New Zealand like any great love is easy to fall for and difficult to get over,” writes Megan Conway in her travel blog Half this World Away. Conway lived in New Zealand for two years. In her blog post she shares 10 Reasons You Will Fall in Love with New Zealand.

  1. New Zealand’s beauty is breath-taking. 

“New Zealand is without a doubt the most jaw-droppingly beautiful country I have ever visited. From its rugged coastlines to its snow-capped mountains,” writes Conway.

  1. New Zealand is diverse.

New Zealand is home to “glaciers, volcanoes, geysers, geothermal pools, white sand beaches, caves illuminated by glow worms, waterfalls, mountains and much more. And because New Zealand is relatively small you can experience these in a short amount of time.

  1. New Zealand will never bore you. 

In New Zealand you can try everything from snowboarding to surfing.

  1. The home-grown produce is incredible. 

New Zealand teaches you to eat seasonally according to Conway and its home-grown produce tastes incredible according to the travel blogger.

  1. Plus New Zealand knows how to cook it. 

“I adore the cafe culture in New Zealand and the standard of food is incredible, I have had some of the best meals of my life in this little corner of the world”, writes Conway.

  1. New Zealand’s many beautiful places

“New Zealand is home to some of the most beautiful places” she’s ever visited, writes Conway.

Conway highlights the fact that as opposed to Australia, New Zealand is void of poisonous snakes and spiders.

  1. The stars are something special 

New Zealand has been voted one of the best places in the world for star gazing and there’s a reason for that. “On a clear night you can see the Milky Way and if you’re really lucky you can also see the Southern Lights.”

  1. New Zealand’s wildlife

New Zealand is home to the endangered kiwi, you can whale watch, swim with wild dolphins and hang out with sunbathing seals.

  1. A combination of all of its qualities make it a pretty epic place to live.
