This week CNN’s Destination Adventure series looks at New Zealand. They have some stunning photos. If you are not already in NZ, they’ll make you wish you were. If you’re here now, they’ll make you want to see as much of the country as you can. They also give some advice on several places to visit in New Zealand. (Thanks to @NZGlobal for this link.)
Also on CNN, New Zealand’s Lake Matheson is named as one of the top 12 most beautiful lakes in the world. This South Island lake is also known as the “Mirror Lake” because you can see the reflections of Mount Cook and Mount Tasman in the water.
