The trip was a truly unique experience . Right from arrival through to my last day the trip ran smoothly and nothing went wrong . The staff working with the charity there were so so friendly and passionate about what they wanted to achieve with us which was lovely and the hostel staff too were the most welcoming people ever ! I feel like I have grown as a person on this trip as have learnt not only how to cope living away from home in a country far away from my own but I’ve also gained valuable skills and life lessons like how to protect and look after the environment which is clearly a very important thing in modern day . Also seeing the beautiful scenery and wildlife of New Zealand was defiantly a highlight ! I didn’t want to come home!
