Jerry Bridge at Cathedral Cove – Coromandel Peninsular

If you are going on holiday nothing, in my opinion beats the diverse selection of New Zealand experiences you will enjoy when you arrive. Whether it’s your first or twenty first visit, New Zealand is always going to be unforgettable! But it’s advisable to get some sensible pre-booking holiday advice before starting your journey. From the extraordinary scenery of the Milford Sound to some of the world best known vineyards. Contact Jerry Bridge and his team at World Travel with Bridge for up-to-date information about where to go and what to do.

Although it’s situation is far from the hub of Europe or America, New Zealand is a land shaped by all the forces of nature – volcanic landscapes, massive glaciers, alpine mountain ranges, Norwegian-like fiords, beautiful beaches as well as the cleanest air on the planet. Whatever you may have read or been told, whichever of the Lord of the Rings or Hobbit trilogy you may have seen, nothing beats the amazing selection of New Zealand experiences.

I now have the fortune of living in Wellington and although it’s very different to my home town, London, it has everything you could wish for in a capital city. Quality wine and amazing coffee were just two reasons for buying into the flourishing cafe scene in this part of the world – it’s no wonder  ‘Lonely Planet’ recently voted it the coolest little capital in the world!

I’ve driven a classic camper van around both the North & South Islands, had a few beers with ‘Flight of the Conchords’ star Bret McKenzie, met the current Prime Minister, John Key, three times, chatted on radio stations and stayed at some of the most amazing places – New Zealand is an absolute must on any ones wish list of places to visit.

‘Have you heard the one about the Englishman, Irishman and Kiwi?’ A most memorable night with New Zealand’s famous Hayley Westenra.

Paragliding over Queenstown is thrilling with amazing views and the good news is that it doesn’t matter what age you are!
