Thanks for posting that Lombard, it was educational! I always thought New Zealand was flat and full of sheep!
Quite a beautiful country you live in!

LMAO Donna I have just come to the same conclusion re: the beauty of it all.

I have watched the vid at least 10 times and am still inspired to go "Naturelist".

Great video.

New Zealand is definitely a place I would love to go to. My Aunt visited once and she loved what she saw, was only there for a few of days as she was on a six week trek thru the Pacific and South africa. A trip of a lifetime.

A beautiful video, Liam. I liked the music, too. Actually, if the Olympics had been held in New Zealand this time, there would be no problems with air pollution . . .

In fairness to Beijing, the world said the same thing about Los Angeles in the 1984 Olympics...

However, I second the motion to have the Olympics in New Zealand! I understand that Auckland and Wellington are beautiful cities!

Absolutely beautiful Lombard. Thanks so much for posting that. I got to spend a little bit of precious time in Australia, (R & R from Vietnam) but never got to your fair country. Perhaps someday I'll be lucky enough to visit there!

Liam,

Undoubtedly one of the absolute best promotional videos I've ever seen. You have an absolutely gorgeous country and the video captures it and presents it all in less than four and a half minutes.

I too think the Olympics should definitely go to New Zealand. Anyway I've always wanted to see where the frequent meat course for our Sunday dinners was raised.

Todd
