Waitomo glow worm caves are a short drive away - also easy to drive to Rotorua (good if you like adventure sports) and the Shire Lord of the Rings sites (wasn’t that into the movies, but still really enjoyed going). That said, if you want really stunning natural beauty, you need to get to the South Island. North Island is similar geography to parts of Ireland

I work at a small CRM company in SaaS sales. It’s a small 35 ish employee company with a family-like culture.Been here for 7 years and usually make about 125k gross/year. I work remote, travel the world for free few times/year attending conferences, and just try to sell as much as I can. No stress, no quotas and what you would probably consider a “kushy” sales job. I feel like I could easily be making double at a salesforce and could land the job fairly easily with my experience. Worth the leap?
