More information and photos to come, but in summary, this was one of the most beautiful countries I have ever been to.  I have only positive things to say; the vibe, people, and landscapes are amazing.  Sometimes you cannot describe things in words, rather you must experience it to understand.

Where can you explore beautiful caves WITHOUT a headlamp?!

glow worms

Waitomo Caves, New Zealand!!

Waitomo caves

There are a few popular caves in New Zealand that have these amazing glow worms, but most reviews online recommended the Waitomo Caves. The most popular excursions to experience these caves are the boat rides, and tube white water rafting.  If you’re looking for a more “relaxed” excursion i’d recommend the boat ride, and for an “adrenaline pumping” excursion i’d recommend the tube white water rafting!

Note: If you’re looking to do some additional “adrenaline pumping” activities like zip lining, climbing, or repelling most of the touring companies offer a package deal with all of these excursions included!
