Are yours the same?

That’s how this experience in New Zealand was for us. Glad you enjoyed this quote as much as we did.

I am very much thankful that you shared this here. Sometimes, I think it really takes a great place and an out-of-the-box experience to discover the simplest things which we always refuse to see when we’re drowned in our typical environments. :)

Not a photoshop chop job. Pretty much just nature. Seemed to match the words.

@Susan: NZ, definitely worth a visit and a worthy ‘bucket list’ candidate. I’m glad this quote touched you like it did me. Very special quote, not only in the words but also how it was delivered.

@NE: Like we said, it’s the real deal.

@Jeremy: Lord of the Rings landscapes in New Zealand…that’s only the beginning.

@Bama: That’s the idea: travel, see and share the stories! Thanks.

Pursue that which is most precious. Yes, keep on traveling, seeing the world, and spreading the stories!

Ever since I found out that lord of the rings was filmed in New Zealand, I have always wanted to go for the amazing landscapes.
