I had the good fortune to visit New Zealand for a second time this spring. What a beautiful place with excellent food & wine and wonderful people! It literally takes days to get there, but is totally worth the trip.
First glances of the North Island from the plane:
This amazing 76-year-old gentleman took me up in his airplane one afternoon to do some aerobatics together. After the first Immelmann, we were both hooting and hollering and high fiving. Not a memory I will soon forget.
