The resulting Tasman lake started to develop in the early 1970s and is now 7km long and with the ongoing effects of climate change, is ...
... As far as I'm concerned, New Zealand lives up to all the hype.
We learned that New Zealand was the last significant land mass to be inhabited by humans, both in terms of indigenous settlement (the Māori ) and European colonization. This, combined with its geological youth, rugged terrain, and geographical isolation, makes for a sparsely populated country and contributes to its rustic and unspoiled charm.
