Scrapbooking! Some people get really excited about scrapbooking. Create pretty pages and don’t let a single activity or travel ticket go to waste!
3. Foot selfie

5. Travel blog
Get with the times! Anyone who is anyone is keeping a travel blog. Well, it is easier said than done in New Zealand where the WiFi connection tends to be abysmal.
