How nice that you came to visit my website! My name is Nadeche, I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I have been living abroad since 2016, in multiple countries including New Zealand. I have a love for New Zealand that I would like to share with you. Below you can find the story about how Makoha started.
New Zealand has always been a destination that seemed too far and too expensive for me. A destination that seemed amazing, but I thought I would never get there. In 2016 the time had come and I went to New Zealand. I spent a year in total there. During this year I have seen most of the country. I have also worked and lived for a longer period of time at multiple locations. I had an amazing year and experienced and seen a lot. Read more about my year in New Zealand here.
With this website I hope to make New Zealand more accessible for everyone. Show them that it is a destination worth the long journey. I hope this will inspire travelers and make it easier to travel in New Zealand. Makoha means “broaden” in Maori, my goal is to broaden your horizons.
On this website you can find information about great destinations, day trips, excursions, useful facts and varied information on the blog. The website contains a lot of information about different destinations, but when you see the icons below it means that it is one of my favourite experiences:
