The Boundless Beauty Of New Zealand
“Awe-inspiring and thought-provoking, New Zealand is the ideal setting for an immersive experience of food, nature, culture and community,” writes Simone Louis for Verve Magazine India.
Louis said she “found it hard to believe how any place could possibly be this unwaveringly, disparately beautiful” like New Zealand.
“It took less than a day for Wellington to sweep me off my feet — quite literally, at one point. Considering it was named ‘the coolest little capital in the world’ by Lonely Planet, it’s not surprising that the people there are young, eclectic, eccentric and great fun, while the food and drinks scene is truly impressive,” she writes.
She then travelled on to Nelson, which Louis describes as “seemingly-photoshopped region” known for its excellent quality of life and for being the sunniest region in the country.
On her last day in Nelson it dawned on Louis that “Nelson could be best described as a way of life.
“The people take pride in and encourage farming, crafts and fishing communities. The region pulsates with an effervescent art and year-round music scene, outdoor activity options, green spaces and an incredible sense of community. If there were a perfect place to raise a family, it would be Nelson,” she writes.
“Plus, it’s the country’s craft beer brewing capital and is known for producing some of the most delicious aromatic wines.”
Louis also recommends visiting Wellington’s Museum Art Hotel and the Abel Tasman National Park.
