Kia Ora! Welcome to New Zealand
Like many of you know, I have been traveling through New Zealand for 10 weeks this year and I can tell you that it has been an incredible experience. It’s a fantastic country with beautiful landscapes and even more amazing locals. While it is true that there are fantastic landscapes all around the world, what makes New Zealand so unique is the mix and the proximity of all these landmarks and sights. There are times we have been driving in our car and were able to see through our windscreen ocean, rainforest and glaciers at the same time. You can hike in the morning through snow covered mountain trails and just a couple of hours later you can be sunbathing at the beach. It is truly a photographers dream there, every corner you come around presents you with yet another postcard view.
There is only 4 million people living in New Zealand from which 1.2 million are living in Auckland. The further south one travels less people and traffic we encounter and it is nothing unusual to see no other cars, even on the main roads, for hours. Not to talk about if you go for a hike. You can spent days out there without meeting anybody at all. It is the ultimate country for nature lovers with so many possibilities for all kinds of sports and activities. Surfing, diving, hiking, kayaking, caving, snorkeling, fishing, and horse riding to name just a few. The choice once you are there is almost endless. Only the length of your holiday will be the limit. To read more about my experience in New Zealand have a look at NZ-Trip.com. There you’ll find, apart from tips and information if you’re planing a trip there, the whole story of this wonderful experience.
Ok, but enough of the talking! Show us some pictures! A few of you have been asking me already and finally I have a gallery with some New Zealand pictures up. Please take your time and have a look at it and see the amazing nature of this country with my eyes in my brand new New Zealand picture gallery. Keep in mind that you have the option to see the gallery slide show at full screen so you’ll be able to appreciate all the little details. Just click the full screen icon on the bottom right of the slide show controls.
If you don’t have the time right now to have a look at the pictures, take the photograph accompanying this post as a appetizer of what’s waiting for you. I have chosen this picture for the reason that it gives the viewer an idea of scale. There is a quite big passenger ship in the picture. Can you see it?
