25 Photos Which Will Inspire you to Visit New Zealand!

March 7, 2016

 

 

Having travelled to many countries, New Zealand is still one of my top destinations thanks to its natural beauty and wildlife. Coming across wildlife in their natural habitat is still a great thrill and we always take our time to enjoy these moments. From Orcas swimming 100 metres offshore, to seals basking in the sun in Kaikoura, to being greeted by the local Kia bird on our drive through Arthur's Pass.

 

New Zealand, situated in the southwestern Pacific Ocean comprises of two main islands - North Island and South Island. Having only 4.5 million habitants across the country, the majority being in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, with the minority being Maori (indigineous Polynesian people of NZ).

 

Oh and did I mentioned the stunning scenery?! New Zealand is renowed for its breath taking landscapes and tranquility!
