2008 – 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.

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.
