Waitomo Glowworm Caves • New Zealand
The Waitomo Glowworm Caves is a popular tourist destination in New Zealand. The caves formed over 30 million years ago underwater, as fossilized chunks of coral, fish skeletons, and sea shells layered and compressed to create a dense limestone.
When explored in the late 1800s, people were amazed by the “twinkling glow” coming from the ceiling of the caves, as well as the remarkable limestone formations. The cave is mainly home to insects, which include albino cave ants, giant crickets, and of course, glowworms.
Eventually, the Waitomo Caves were opened to the public and are now welcoming an average of about 400,000 visitors a year.

It still stands today as the best place for medical students to get ” hands on” experience . As well as a popular attraction for locals and tourists alike.I WILL go here on day.
I loved this museum so much.
This is seriously one of the coolest places on Earth.

The Twisted Trees of Slope Point, New Zealand
Slope Point is at the southernmost point of the South Island of New Zealand. The air streams loop the ocean, unobstructed for 2000 miles, until they reach Slope Point causing incredibly strong winds. In fact, the winds are so strong and persistent here that they perpetually warp and twist the trees into these crooked, wind-swept shapes.
Slope Point is generally uninhabited, except for the herds of sheep that graze the land. There are no roads leading here, however backpackers regularly make the short 20-minute walk to see the fascinating tree formations that only Mother Nature could create. However there is no public access during the lambing season from September to November.
