How Much Money You'll Need To Travel New Zealand

Tongariro Alpine Corssing, New Zealand

I'm presenting myself with the mammoth task of creating a budget breakdown for each of the countries I visited on my 5-month backpacking trip. When I was planning our budget, one thing I found really helpful was to look at other budget guides to work out how much money we'd need to travel around each country. 

It felt reassuring reading them as I knew those people had actually experienced living on that certain amount of money, and I knew what I was going to expect to be paying for different things. 

I'm starting off this series with the first country we visited - New Zealand

To give you a brief overview - New Zealand is expensive, especially compared to Asia. You're probably looking at the same sort of prices as Australia if a little cheaper. When we visited New Zealand in 2017, the New Zealand dollar was about twice as much as the British pound, to give you a reference. 

It's pretty easy to remember, just half everything and you'll roughly be paying that amount. 

All of the pricing below will be broken down into daily prices, and then summarised for a month's stay.

So if you're thinking about travelling to New Zealand here's how much money you'll need based on my personal experience of what we paid!

5 Of My Favourite Perfumes Right Now

7 Of My Favourite Perfumes Right Now

I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but I have a lot of perfume. It's not been something that I was aware of until I really looked at how many bottles I had standing on my shelf, but I just seem to accumulate them! This is mainly due to people buying them for me as gifts, winning them in competitions and through samples. But am I complaining?! Definitely not. 

The one thing I love about owning so many bottles of perfume is that I can choose a scent to fit my specific mood that day. I can flit from floral to musky, daytime to evening, powerful to light without having to stick to one scent! There are a few that I always enjoy wearing that bit more than some of the others I own, so here are my favourite perfumes I'm reaching for right now. 

Just to give you a heads up, I'm not an expert in perfume, so I've tried to describe each perfume in the best way I can.
