Paradise, New Zealand
The name of this area is actually Paradise, and it's a very suitable name. Of all the areas I visited in New Zealand this place is definitely in the top three, if not the most beautiful of them all.
Vast fields of green grass, grazing cows and the high mountains in the background, this is an area where I need to come back to again.
Of course this place has its fair share of Lord of the Rings history as well, since scenes from Isengard and Lothlorien where recorded here.
