It was a journey to the other side of the world. For me my second visit and I got even more excited about the amount of time I got to spend on the North Island. Which is very diverse compared to the South Island.

The main challenge was to create a schedule for about 12 days for both islands and hundreds of kilometers between the specific locations I had on my list. Luckily Tourism New Zealand was open minded for many suggestions and changes in the itinerary drafts and we finally got to manage a plan for a pretty short stay on these beautiful islands.

Anyways the way photography works in New Zealand is different compared to the main destinations I travel to during the year. The subjects are different and can diversify from a simple cabin to the highest peak of the country. It was a great challenge and for sure not my last visit.

The goal was to promote both islands and their variety through Instagram postings, but mainly focused on Instagram stories using the geo tag tool, saved in a separate highlight for people who are interested in the behind the scenes and the high amount of locations we stopped at.

It was important for the Destination to have a story highlight on my account including the route I took while exploring New Zealand. So I started each day with a map showing my location of the following locations of each day to have a complete 12 days guide for future visitors.
