New Zealand (or Aotearoa â€“ land of the long white cloud), truly is one of the most
picturesque and photogenic places on earth. A small island nation of just over 4.5 million people,
New Zealand is made up of two major land masses (North Island and South Island) and a number of smaller
islands including Stewart Island located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean.
The two main islands are divided by a 22km stretch of water called the Cook Strait.
