Trip to New Zealand & flying with the King of Sweden on my 100th flight in Business Class
Earlier this month, I was able to explore New Zealand, thanks to Singelresor. We flew with Emirates to Christchurch where we explored the South Island; then took the ferry boat to North Island and after visiting Wellington, Rotorua and Auckland, flew back home. As I had enough Emirates Skywards miles, I decided to upgrade my flight from Dubai to Stockholm in Business Class where I also had the chance to see King Gustav of Sweden as he was seated in front of me! I've flown 99 times in business class prior to this flight so this flight was actually my 100th time to fly in business class. Here are some reviews of the hotels we stayed at, as well as the top attractions we visited while in New Zealand, the land of the Kiwis!

Earlier this month, I was able to explore the beautiful country of New Zealand, thanks to Singelresor! With its breathtaking landscape and rich Maori culture, there's no doubt that exploring this far, far away land should be on top of your travel list. Unfortunately, our visit to the Milford Sound was cancelled due to an avalanche causing the roads to be closed. I guess that's another reason for me to come back to New Zealand in the future! Here are some of the places we visited and which I would highly recommend to my fellow travelers.
in Iceland although I was told by our guide that they (New Zealanders) were the first ones to have it.
