My Memorable Experience in New Zealand

Me in New Zealand

New Zealand is one of my favorite countries. NZ has great nature and beautiful landscapes. I went to NZ when I was 15 years old. That place was the city of Christchurch in NZ.

Christchurch is located near the southern end of Pegasus Bay. And it is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the country's second-largest urban area. Also, Christchurch has one of the highest-quality water supplies in the world. Of course, I was really surprised that water was very clean and of high quality.

Anyway, I went there as an exchange student for 2 weeks. And I had a wonderful time. For example, I was making many Kiwi friends and I was buying many kinds of souvenirs like honey (actually NZ is very famous for their honey) and products made from sheep. That was my first trip overseas. So it was a very memorable experience for me.
