“It is true I have not been Everywhere. But I’ve done the next best thing. I’ve been to New Zealand.”

That sentence concluded the post I wrote about the trip Ken and I took to New Zealand.  I called it 5 Reasons Why New Zealand, but I could have written at least 95 more reasons!

I am calling your attention to that post, and hope you’ll read it if you have not already, because TODAY launches the world-wide effort to share the beauty and excitement of travel to New Zealand.  It’s called Blog 4NZ, and was the brain storm of ever-energetic Craig over at Indie Travel Podcast.

If you are also a blogger, then join the fun and blog about your own adventures in New Zealand, today, tomorrow and the next day.  And if you are a reader–share the message on Facebook and Twitter (using the #Blog4NZ hash tag)–New Zealand is back and ready for travelers!

And if you always thought you could not afford New Zealand….now is the time to go. Never a better time for bargain travel. Check out the New Zealand Tourism page for suggestions.

I went to New Zealand.
