New Zealand:
The Best Place to Have Your Head in the Clouds

Spectacular geothermal areas and hot springs. Lush breathtaking fjords. Aotearoa, the traditional native word for New Zealand, means “land of the long white cloud.” A relatively “new” country, estimates say that no humans lived on the island until Polynesians settled there in the 1300s. They developed their own unique culture now known as Maori, an important part of New Zealand’s identity. Maori culture and history are taught and spoken about with pride, Maori language is an official language, and the country is slowly adopting both languages on signs throughout the country. It won’t be long before you’re the All Blacks rugby team’s biggest fan, chanting along with the infamous Haka ritual.
