Twitchhiker makes it to New Zealand in 30 days

A British Twitter user has made it from Gateshead all the way to Stewart Island off the coast of New Zealand thanks to the kindness of users of the popular micro-blogging site.

Paul Smith, aka the Twitchhiker, set off from the UK on March 1, crossing Europe and the US before arriving in New Zealand after 30 days of travelling. The intrepid explorer also managed to raise £5,000 for charity.

So if you're in need of a cheap holiday this summer, it might just be time to jump on the Twitter bandwagon.
