Just a quick off-topic post today for any readers who are interested in travel, and specifically interested in traveling to New Zealand.
As many long-time Casual Kitchen readers know, I'm currently taking a bit of a break from the work world. And on January 1st, Laura joined me and began a six-month sabbatical from her job. And the very first big trip we took together was a four-week tour of New Zealand.
We've dreamed of visiting New Zealand for years and we were not disappointed. It was an amazing place, full of friendly people and stunning natural beauty. We can't wait to go back.
For any readers here who are curious about this incredible country, please feel free to take a look at the full index of posts from our New Zealand Travel Blog. And for those of you who just want a quick taste of some of the highlights, here are--in our opinion--some of the best entries:
