- Hike (or tramp, as the Kiwis say) one (or more?) of New Zealand's Great Walks
- New Zealand is, of course, not the easiest country to get to, but completely worth it if you get the chance. I studied there for a semester in college, but I know Andy would love it's incredible geography (beaches, mountains, glaciers, fjiords--all within a short drive of each other) and it's large expanses of un-peopled landscapes. As a bonus, there are no bears, wolves, snakes or poisonous insects (click here to read about this). Makes you want to hike there too, doesn't it?
- Descriptions, maps, and videos of the 9 Great Walks can be found here
