I’ve always wanted to go whale-watching, and I’ve always hoped to travel to another country to see them. And last year, I got to see those whales up close in New Zealand – a completely different environment than I’m used to. It was exhilarating. Everyone should have a lifetime to-do list, and slowly but surely, I’m checking off at least one big adventure for each new year.
Natasha continues her story:
Whale-watching started for me when I was a kid. My parents traveled quite a bit, as they worked in the travel industry, and they took me with them on occasion. But the one place we never seemed to get to was New Zealand. Everyone talked about it like it was a hidden gem, a paradise-like place.
Don’t worry abo9ut the weather the best time I did this was winter – freezing cold but absolutely amazing – we just wore every bit of clothes we could fit on!
