We reckon New Zealand has got to be one of the best countries in the world for travelling alone. It ranks highly for safety, and it’s an incredibly easy place to get around. Kiwis are a friendly, open-minded bunch – we’ve always got time for a chat, to give directions or to recommend a nearby restaurant. Travelling New Zealand alone, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to meet people and make new friends; there’s no need to worry about being lonely. Plus you’ll have time to enjoy getting to know yourself a little more, amidst landscapes so beautiful they’ll take your breath away.

She was a solo traveller on tour and kept a wonderful diary of all the places, people and experiences which made up her trip, which she has kindly agreed to share with us.
