Visual Adventure - Instagramming New Zealand

Hmmm, North Island or South Island? How about both?!

by Daniel Noll and Audrey Scott Posted on 28 February 2013

Visiting New Zealand: North Island or South Island?  That seems to be the question.  We offer a third way:  Both!  North Island and South Island are different in both look and feel, and having had a taste of both, we wouldn't want it any other way.  Both offer incredible landscapes and adrenaline-loaded experiences, but they do so differently, which makes it unfair to choose.

But don't just take our word for it - see the proof from our iPhone:  ten select Instagram images from New Zealand's North Island and ten from the South Island, with one from the Cook Strait Ferry connecting the two in between just for good measure.

This is New Zealand -- the whole of New Zealand.  This is New Zealand encompassed via Instagram.
