New Zealand
New Zealand is one of the safest and most friendly countries in the world. From the commonplace encounters with hitchhikers around the islands to conversations with just about anyone you meet, it won’t take long for you to realize that there’s something special about Kiwis. It’s also important to remember that because New Zealand is very remote, parts of the country aren’t easily accessed, aren't connected to phone service, or are prone to wild weather and geological activity such as earthquakes, landslides, and volcanoes—and it’s good to come prepared.
