With a population of about 20,000 people the Cook Islands are only a small part of the island country New Zealand. But this part is a self-governing parliamentary democracy in free association with NZ – beacuse of the beautifull beaches and landscape tourism is the leading element of the economy. My friend and photographer Jan travelled this paradise 2 years ago and came back with a bunch of real stunning pictures from Aitutaki and Rarotonga.
This Album features a selection of images of Jan's holiday on the Cook Islands in September/ October 2009. He and his wife spend two amazing weeks there – starting with some days on Rarotonga, having a relaxing time on Aitutaki and getting back to Rarotonga to catch the flight back home:
All the stunning pictures of this post are taken and edited by Jan, a friend of mine. If you like to see more of his work click on the link below to see his Flickrstream!
