We just came back from a trip to New Zealand! It was amazing to be there again and I will upload here in several bits some photos. First, I would like to share with you a view from above of parts of New Zealand. Here is a view of the country just as we were leaving New Zealand. A view which justifies the Maori name for it: Aotearoa.




Aotearoa means "the land of the long white cloud". The legend says that when the first Maori people were in their canoes and just about to discover a new land, they saw in a distance a long white cloud and then saw that below it there was a land, so they named the land Aotearoa.

I have put in an album several more photos. Take a look if you like!
