Kia ora!

If you visit this country this phrase might be one of the first things you hear.

In Maori it means “hi.” 

That's easy enough to pronounce but like a lot of visitors I struggled to pronounce long Maori street and place names.

Another good word to know is Aotearoa, which means “land of the long white cloud.”

Like Canada, this is a place of diverse weather and widespread natural beauty. 

This country's landscapes are quite distinctive, and can be profoundly affecting.

Today’s Time Lapse Tuesday travels to New Zealand, with cinematographer Shawn Reeder.
