It’s easy for a young person to feel suffocated in New Zealand. I, like so many before me, couldn’t wait to get out and see the rest of the world. I spent three months travelling through eight different countries last year.

2) It’s relatively uncorrupt.
New Zealand came in second on the latest Corruption Perceptions Index
