New Zealand is a special place. As there is so much to do in such a small area, it makes for one of the best and most efficient trips in the world. In a week or two, you can easily see much of the country and explore everything from tropical waters in the north, to glaciers in the south. I've had the pleasure of visiting New Zealand twice. Once in 2007 where I rented a camper-van to tour around the country for three weeks. Then, once again in 2011 when I attended the finals of the Rugby World Cup where New Zealand defeated France in the finals.... oh yes, and if you didn't already know, this is the land of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings! I hope you enjoy this selection of my favourite images from my time in New Zealand:

The skyline of Auckland.
Waves in the Queen Charlotte Sound between the North and South Islands.
Rainbow over Milford Sound.
Mount Cook, the highest peak in New Zealand.
