My Trip to New Zealand

Before leaving for Australia I would have never guessed that I would be traveling as much as I am. It’s crazy to think about. I’ve seen so many much of Sydney, swam in the Great Barrier Reef and had a spring break in Bali. But the most memorable trip I took happened towards the end…
