New Zealand

New Zealand is an island country in the south-western Pacific Ocean comprising two main landmasses (commonly called the North Island and the South Island), and numerous smaller islands, most notably Stewart Island/Rakiura and the Chatham Islands. The indigenous Māori language name for New Zealand is Aotearoa, commonly translated as The Land of the Long White Cloud. The Realm of New Zealand also includes the Cook Islands and Niue (self-governing but in free association); Tokelau; and the Ross Dependency (New Zealand’s territorial claim in Antarctica).

I was in New Zealand for five months, travelling around much of the North and South Island, visiting the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers, walking the Humpridge Track and the Tongariro Crossing and learning to dive at the Poor Knight’s Islands.
