OK, so I realize how ridiculously nerdy this is going to sound but I've wanted to visit New Zealand ever since I saw footage on the making of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. But hear me out. This country is absolutely gorgeous and boasts a varied and diverse landscape.
New Zealand consists of two larger islands and many smaller islands. The North Island's climate is subtropical whereas the South Island's climate is temperate and oceanic. This means that there are both glaciers and rain forests to be found in this country as well as gorgeous coastal views, mountain ranges, and metropolitan city life.
My wish would be to backpack around the two major islands and camp in order to take every advantage of this varied terrain.
