If you’re jetting off around the world on your gap year, you could do a lot worse than this flight deal. First up is the best city on America’s West Coast – San Francisco. Spend your time here wandering up and down the its hills, crazy zig zag streets and hopping on and off the street cars, before getting back on the plane and travelling right round to the other side of the world.
A quick break in New Zealand’s first city – Auckland, where you can soak up the chilled harbourside vibe and try some of the food and bars it’s become known. Next, the real gem of the trip – the Cook Islands. Second to none for incredible beaches, blue seas and scuba diving, these islands really have to be seen to be believed.
Whether you want to just cruise around them on a boat, breathe in the sea air and maybe try your hand at skippering a yacht, or fancy doing nothing more than sitting on a beach and enjoying some peace and quiet in a private villa as a break from backpacking, you can. This really is the perfect place to chill out, work on your tan and just generally contemplate life and how freaking awesome it can be.
Once you’ve had enough there, hop back to New Zealand, explore a bit more of the Land of the Long White Cloud. See Milford Sound (that most beautiful sight), Queenstown (another world’s best – Fergburger) and a whole lot more natural beauty before a complete change to one of Asia’s mega cities – Hong Kong.
Get a glimpse into the insanity of life in an Asian city; the pace, the lights, the colours, the smells and the almost-but-not-quite overwhelming jungle of skyscrapers, all visible from Victoria Peak. Make the most of your time here, maybe use it as a launch point to explore more of Asia – China, Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia, etc… or once you’re done there, take your final flight home and just bask in all the amazing memories you’ve collected, friends you’ve made and photos you’ve taken.
