New Zealand

While Jordan may not be near the top of your travel list, it certainly should be. The city of Aman is beautiful with many sites to see. Petra is one of the “new” seven wonders of the world. The desert are of Wadi Rum (where they filmed the Martian with Matt Damon) is a surreal experience.
Some of our favorite pictures are listed below. If you click on a picture, it will bring up several others from the same area or attraction you can view.

Have you heard about the Fiords in NZ? They are absolutely gorgeous! The way to get the best view of the NZ Fiords is from a cruise ship. We watch in awe as took in the views.

On the way to go visit Christ Church, NZ, we had quite the bus ride. Along the way the bus stopped at a coffee shop and we were allowed out to take this amazing photo.

One of the coolest experiences we had was visiting the Antarctic Center. It’s the last stop before you go to Antarctica. They had penguins, the storm dome, a 4D theatre, and much more. Definitely a must see!

Not really knowing where to go, we got lucky when deciding to go to the Larnach Castle in Dunedin. Not only did it have spectacular views and a rich history, but the food was something special (fun to eat at a castle).

You can’t go to NZ and not go see something related to Lord of the Rings. We went on a hike to see where the black riders almost got Frodo in the 1st movie and we had a blast touring the special effects studio.

At Hell’s Gate geothermal park you get to learn about Rūaumoko the God of earthquakes and volcanoes as you walk around bubbling pools of scalding hot water and mud pools. A unique experience you’ll not want to miss.

There is so much to do in Auckland. You can jump off the Sky Tower, try your luck in a panic room, or walk around the outside of the sky tower like we did. Yes, we were scared but it was a once in lifetime opportunity we couldn’t pass up!

If you want to go tubing in underground caves where the ceilings are light up by glowworms, the Waitmo Caves is the place to go. We did the 5 hour rafting and zip-line excursion. I was pretty intense but truly one of the most unique adventure we’ve ever been on.
