4 Deep takes on Te Kauwhata, New Zealand

4 Deep takes on Te Kauwhata, New Zealand

For 4 Deep Around The World vacations are more than visiting amusement parks and buying souvenirs. It’s about understanding the culture and the world around us. Hang with us as a $200 international flight deal takes us from the city streets of Houston to a farm in New Zealand.

For our first day in New Zealand, we wake up on a milk farm prepared to learn all about the farming business. It was a day filled with manure, fresh milk, after birth and nipples.

Thank you to Stacey and family for hosting 4 Deep Around the World and opening up your home to us.

Life and Death While Traveling: Are you covered in the case of an emergency abroad?

If you follow the journey of 4 Deep Around the World, you know I’m a huge advocate of international travel. I constantly promote taking advantage of  every opportunity to see the world. World travel is the new “it” thing that’s taking the world by storm.
