Exploring New Zealand

I visited Auckland, Wellington, Rotorua, Waitomo and Picton in March, 2008. It is such a beautiful country, and I am definitely going back another time.


Auckland is the larges city in New Zealand, with over a million inhabitants.


Wellington is the capital of New Zealand, and located at the southern tip of the North Island.


Rotorua is well-known for geothermal activity. The area is dotted with hot mud pools, craters, geysers and hot thermal springs.


Waitomo, with its many caves, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in New Zealand. I saw the caves on foot and in a boat, and I also rafted through one of the caves.


I did a tandem skydive over Picton, which is located at the northern tip of the South-Island.
