Pure New-zealand by Yves Emprin (836) 2009-10-25 - 2009-12-05
Partis pour un mois et demi à l'autre bout du monde... Oublié le stress parisien, voici les grands espaces néo-zélandais avec ses paysages à couper le souffle: les alpes du sud, avec ces superbes pics et ses lacs immenses, les fiords grandioses, les forêts primaires, les cotes sauvages et les eaux turquoises du parc abel tasman, les volcans sur l'ile du nord. La nature protégée et à portée de main. Un calme extraordinaire, parfois un silence assourdissant, parfois les mélodies envoutantes des oiseaux.
On voudrait que cela n'arrête jamais, on voudrait ne jamais revenir... ... (full story) (95 photos)

Tongariro Crossing by Cecile Colruyt (1081) 2006-02-15 - 2006-02-15
The Tongariro Crossing is probably the most famous one-day hike in New Zealand.
On 15 febr. 2006 my husband and me did this spectacular walk between the volcanos. It was a bright sunny day with only a few clouds; just enough for the photografy. ... (full story) (13 photos)

A year in New Zealand by Michiel Rutteman (29) 2003-08-28 - 2004-08-09
Form August 2003 to August 2004 me and my girlfriend have lived in New Zealand for almost a year. I've done the most wonderful things there like making radio, hapkido, swing dance and working at a school for mentally disabled children. Of course we did our share of travelling and we met some of the nicest people I will ever know!
The pictures posted here can range from your tipically tourist pic to pictures that were taken from a "local" point of view.
Hopefully I can share my experience with you a bit by posting some of my photo's.
Have fun! (3 photos)
Coromandel peninsula-Rotarua by Nick Miles (650) 2004-05-26 - 2004-05-28
I felt sorry for the Rotaruans, they have a large town built around tourist infrastructure. Maori history and the thermal activity draw the crowds here. But the entire town was blanketed with a sulphuric rotten egg smell. ... (full story) (1 photo)
The Kai Iwi Lakes by Nick Miles (650) 2004-05-24 - 2004-05-30
Later that day, yes it was beautiful, sun shining not a cloud in the sky that sort of thing we went for a walk or tramp as they are called here. The country side in the far North is lush and green; think ‘far from the madding crowd, sheep dotted hillsides’ with the occasional smattering of palm trees and tropical plants. ...
