Yes the problems don't seem half as bad when you look at them through the wonderful scenery. I would rather cope with problems here than back home cause when you look at what was created here they seem so insignificant sometimes eh!

Big thanks for that link

Our friends son was in the clip of the rugby game in the shadow of Mt Ruapehu. Bit of a story behind that clip and it was a result of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy filming in the area. Stroke of luck you finding that link we forgot all about what it was being filmed for.

I love seeing the faces of Tourists and visitors to this country when they see some of the marvels that I sometimes take for granted. There are days when I am at work on a hillside somewhere and take a look around me or driving somewhere, when I pause to think how damn lucky we are to live in such a beautiful country and yes those problems just drift away.
