My New Zealand Story
<br /> In New Zealand, the warm way of welcoming someone is known as manaakitanga; an indigenous Māori concept representing a unique style of hospitality, generosity and kindness. For this hashtag challenge #mynewzealandstory we asked the Your Shot community to share with us images and stories that showcase the intangible things that make New Zealand such a special place. It's not just the epic landscapes that stay with you, it's the way you feel when you're there.
