If you ever visit Ecuador, make sure to get close to paradise and spend some time on las Islas Galápagos. It is definitely one of the most thrilling experiences I have ever made. This volcanic archipelago and jaw-dropping national park is located in the Pacific Ocean about 1000 km west of Ecuador. Follow Charles Darwin and check out the amazing variety of endemic species found on these beautiful islands.
The Máori call the North Island of New Zealand “Te Ika-a-Māui”, “the fish of Maui”. Legend claims that Maui was an untalented fisherman who hid in his brothers´boat to join them on their fishing trip. They refused to give him bait, so he broke his nose and used his blood on his grandmother´s magic jawbone to catch fish. He ended up pulling up a really big one – the North Island =) Whether you believe the story or not, here are more beautiful pics taken in Te Ika-a-Māui….

Having lived in New Zealand for almost two years, I had the chance to return to the most beautiful country in the world in 2010. Here are some of my favorite shots of a two-week North Island tour.
