Favorite Study Abroad Memory: On our first day in New Zealand, we hiked up Mt. Victoria in Auckland. A storm came, and when we got to the top of the mountain, we had to hold onto the handrails to avoid falling over because it was so windy! The view overlooking the city was incredible. It then started pouring down rain as we headed back down, and we were all soaked by the time we got back to the bus.
