New Zealand is a country in the south-western Pacific Ocean consisting of two large islands (called the North Island and South Island) and many much smaller islands. New Zealand is called Aotearoa in MÄori, which translates as the Land of the Long White Cloud.
It is notable for its geographic isolation, being separated from Australia to the northwest by the Tasman Sea, some 2,000 kilometres (1,250 miles) across. Its closest neighbours to the north are New Caledonia, Fiji and Tonga.
The population of New Zealand is mostly of European descent, with MÄori being the largest minority. Non-MÄori Polynesian and Asian peoples are also significant minorities, especially in the cities.
Elizabeth II is the Queen of New Zealand and is represented in the country by a non-political Governor-General; the Queen 'reigns but does not rule', so she has no real political influence. Political power is held by the Prime Minister, who is leader of the Government in the democratically-elected Parliament of New Zealand. The Realm of New Zealand also includes the Cook Islands and Niue, which are entirely self-governing, Tokelau, and the Ross Dependency (New Zealand's territorial claim in Antarctica).
I live in nz and....it's cool and.... it doesn't have that great shopping etc compared to like france or new york but what do I know. te kuiti lol that's cute. I been to the South Island lots cos my dad lives there right down the bottom in Dunedin so I've had some great views of the whole country from a plane. cool.
NZ is the best country in the world to live! We maybe small, but we got it going on! I currently live in Switzerland, and tho Europe is absolutley stunning and a great place to be, i am looking forward to moving home to my Beauitful NZ!!!! Nothing better than a BBQ on beach, with some good old watties tomato sauce.... I LOVE NZ
This is much better than Google Maps by the looks of it. Such a better local community.
I drove my rental car around New Zealand in the South Island for 3 weeks and then finished up north for a week. Unfortunately, I'm not the best driver around so I had a little accident. :-( Lucky it was insured and I only had to pay $350NZ to get it fixed. Phew.
Was in NZ for Jan 07 and did the circuit of thest. island clockwise from Christchurch to christchurch via Queenstown.Have previously done the far south(Invercargill etc.)
Going back in Oct. for 6 months to see some more As my youngest is off to Uni.I'm taking advantage of the freedom togo to where I'm happiest : Walking and meeting people via the great NZ hostel system.
There are about 50 volcanic formations displayed in an assortment of lakes, lagoons, islands, weathertech and other natural wonders about Auckland with a history of intense lava flows throughout the years. The largest of its kind is called Rangitoto Island, which has formed over the past 1,000 years.
According to my grandfather namely Dodge Gaugeson about this place(NZ).... A walk throughout this natural delight is a one of the best places to visit in New Zealand for capturing the wondrous environment and encountering the only location where the sunbathing kiwi resides at Masons Beach.
When you are interested in sipping on a relaxing glass of wine, the Hawkes Bay wineries offer a nice getaway for lovers and enthusiasts. The Te Mata peak is also found in NZ. And, about Sky Tower â Auckland... situated on the corner of Victoria and Federal Streets, the Sky Tower is a well-known observation and radio tower positioned in the central part of the business district. Besides Saturn oxygen sensor being part of the SKYCITY casino complex, the tower is known as the tallest free-standing structure within the Southern Hemisphere.
The father of a friend of mine has been all over the world with the company he works for. He has been virtually everywhere on this planet with the exception of Antarctica. His favorite place on earth is New Zealand.
With that said, if you could live anywhere in New Zealand where would you live? From what I can tell having spent hours and hours surfing New Zealand web sites, scratching my lexus floor mats while thinking of some ideas, I'd conclude that Queenstown on the South Island is the winner. It lies smack in the middle of the South Island on Lake Watatipu. It's sort of like Lake George in New Zealand with all the upgrades that being in New Zealand would offer. And hey, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy was filmed here, maybe rental property in Minas Tirith is cheap these days.
I'm a geek.
First thing that comes to my mind when I hear New Zealand is a huge farm. Funny huh? I guess I got the idea from television because I haven't been there. My friend who works there just bought a second hand car and got a cheap exhaust system from http://www.aftermarketperformanceparts.com/jeep-exhaust-system.html
and said she received it fast and bought it at a discount price.
Auckland Zoo is the one of the best places I have visited in New Zealand when traveling with the family includes an assortment of exotic critters, such as the Kaka, one of the native parrots associated with the country. Additional creatures of the zoo include the Blue Duck, Archey's Frog, and the Weta.
The Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World from where visitors can view more than 1,800 inhabitants of the marine world at this popular tourist attraction that serves as home to piranha, octopus, seahorses, sharks, and stingray.
I Love New Zealand a lot.
Mr. Juan Dodge Gaugeson from NY City

Trekking Accommodation In Imlil High Atlas Morocco
Atlas Morocco is a great destination with wonderful trails, wild mountains, fascinating people and a dozen summits over 4000 metres high - they're not called the High Atlas for nothing! Lower elevation treks are available too. English speaking guide(s) cook your meals, and mules carry all the essentials so you can enjoy travelling light and spend your day exploring ancient villages, pastoral valleys and hidden passes that lead to panoramic ridges. Far above dramatic stark crags and rocky trails contrast with terraced village gardens and ruined Kasbahs. You can wander at will and perhaps bag a few peaks. Private treks of the High Atlas for all abilities can be arranged for any duration at a fixed daily rate depending on number of people travelling by ASQUARRAY TREKS (http://trek.imlil.fr ).
Transfers to the starting points and from the final destination are available from Marrakech or from elsewhere. Their trekking itineraries are designed to be integrated into a tailor-made holiday and are, therefore, independent and private to each client rather than fixed date departures of large groups and because of this freedom they have become very popular with those who really wish to get away from it all. With our trekking you can enjoy the incredible beauty of the Atlas Mountain region at your chosen pace and for the duration and route of your preference.

That was a cool place. I learned how to be your own investor out there. New Zealand is a dream land for me.
I have been investing in the stock market and in other investment opportunities for over 7 years in New Zealand. Over that period I have learned many things, that taught me how to invest and that helped me make some good returns in the stock market there, and that is all because of beautiful places out there. Tourist and vacationist loved the place so much that's why plenty of people are keep on staying. By the way, the last video was quite interesting.
In terms of business, most individuals know how to trade stocks in NZ... New Zealand giant Fonterra Cooperative Group, which accounts for roughly 40 percent of global dairy exports, said Thursday it hoped to list on the stock exchange here by 2010. The move would make Fonterra, New Zealand's largest company with 2007 revenues of nearly 14 billion dollars (10.7 billion US), easily the largest firm traded in New Zealand, dwarfing current number one Telecom Corp.
New Zealand belongs to an idel country. It has a unique stock market investing strategy. It is an investor education country too. More people decide to put their busineses there. Making money and investing in the stock market is always a difficult task but most people decide to be in New Zealand because of a good economy.
No place like home :)
Absolutely the best place in the world for me and my group
hey I just discovered this cafe where they serve amazing waffles! I have to say It's the best in town. Sorry can't share the shop's name

We live in Wellington, drive North often but never take time to explore things off the main road, I decided I am going to do so on the 29th Jan 08, took my 14yr old son and our border collie Toby to explore Peka Peka Beach, we had a Blast! We will be going back for some more fun! Thanks for having this on the internet so I could check it out.
New Zealand is a beautiful place, I've visited on many occassions from Australia. Mostly to do some of the more extreme sports.
Word of warning though, if you're planning a long trip I advise that you take out Travel Insurance I injured myself on holidays & learnt the hard way!

The Coromandel Peninsula is on the north eastern coast of the North Island of New Zealand. It is a beautiful area filled with the mountains, sandy beaches, green rolling hills, and picturesque bays.
Hello guys, this is jackson and I want to say that this is very nice blog and I have visited it and liked it most. Really NEWZEALAND is very nice country.
Thank you for posting this article in this forum I will bookmark this page and tell my friends about this ...
I am a born and breed Dunedinite. Many students who went to Otago University in the 70's and 80's would have ate at the Tui Cafe in Albany Street. My dad was affectionately known as Joe Tui. What a great city Dunedin is. Most people complain about the cold but its normal that winters cold. We have everything at our doorstep and a pace of life that others envy. The people are not so rushed, less stressed and much more friendly than those from the big city like Auckland.. Check out Dunedin. You won,t be disappointed.
