New Zealand via Instagram is part of my series of articles posting Instagram photos. Check out Peru via Instagram and Bangladesh via Instagram and find me on Instagram.

 

It’s hard to believe how much beauty is packed into New Zealand. I call New Zealand the biggest little country in the world because it takes such a long time to get from place to place here. Because the terrain is so hilly, driving on a straight road is a real rarity. New Zealand also gets a healthy dose of rain, keeping the country very green. Being an island, the coastline is never too far away.

 

My journey through New Zealand took me mostly in and around Auckland, the peninsula north of its biggest city, and around the Coromandel Peninsula. The Coromandel Peninsula is a small piece of land sticking up from the north end of the north island which is composed of lots of protected land. The roads are small and driving takes time. Our week there was filled with scenic drives, calm walks through meadows and grazing land, forest walks among towering Kauri trees, and splendid vistas from mountain tops. There were also plenty of birds to look at and wild beaches to walk along.
