Is This Airline Safety Video the 'Most Epic Ever Made?'

Every fun adventure starts with something unique.

Air New Zealand has this covered….in spades….or should I say Hobbits? We watched this video on the way there and back. Enjoy!

And yes, the big faces and such you see at the beginning of the video in the airport are in the airport! There are giant eagles hanging from the ceiling too. So fun and whimsical. Hobbit references all over the place.

And instead of EXIT signs to indicate how to leave the building, their signs read WAY OUT. Don’t you just love that? Hey, it is the way out after all.

New Zealand!

We did it!

The 33.5 mile trek called the Milford Track in New Zealand. It was an amazing hike with Neil’s two sisters and brother-in-law. Everyone had a good time and there was sunshine for three days, and thunder, lightening and rain on the final day. But it was “no worries mate!” as we worked our way towards Sandfly Point. By the end of the day there was sunshine once again for our boat ride across part of the Milford Sound.

So stay tuned for more pictures in the upcoming weeks as I recover from over 45 hours of airplane travel. When such a long distance trip is slammed into under 13 days, it’s not exactly relaxing, but it sure is fun!

And you wonder why I haven’t done any quilting lately? Ha! Wonder no more!
