Beautiful New Zealand IV

With all the awful things that have been happening around the world in the last few days, I feel the need to once again remind myself how lucky I am that I was born in New Zealand.

Immerse yourself in this short film by Bevan Percival. It was shot in Tongariro National Park in the central North Island. The biggest mountain is Mt Ruapehu, and the pointy one is Mt Tongariro. A thirty minute drive would put me in Tongariro National Park, and I can see Mt Ruapehu from where I live. The lake is Lake Taupo. I’m not sure which rivers they are as there are several in the area they could be, all of which are beautiful. The well-known Whanganui River has its headwaters in Mt Ruapehu.

Once again, it was the fabulous Amy Carparelli (@AmyAmylou1993 on Twitter) who found this for me.

    Absolutely beautiful – i always feel lucky to love in such a beautiful country. Its also good to reflect on what is great in this world and remember that the bad, while shocking, is only a very small part.

    I am not particularly fond of New Zealand right now after you thrashed us last week, but, if you beat the Aussies tonight, all is forgiven!

    • The game’s just about to start – they’re singing the national anthem right now! Can’t wait! Out current team is the best chance we’ve had of beating the Aussies for a while, and I hope we can do it! 🙂
