                                            Out of all these videos about Steven coming here he nearly says Kia Ora right, but on this one he pronounces it perfectly. All it takes is one near death experience lol.

                                                Wow, over the years, Stephen’s humour has really receded to that of the “obnoxious American out in the world” . It was a very gradual process, what a shame…

I am enjoying it so much to hear positive things from a country with normal, common sense citizens. It feels good to hear that it's possible to get rid of guns, and learn how it's done. Education, health care - no worries! Good on ya, New Zealand! Especially after listening to so much stupidity and incompetence in politics every day, things getting worse in the USA, no change for the better in sight. It's depressing! What's next? How about a trip to Iceland, where crooked bankers actually get locked up, where politicians don't bail out corporations and make the taxpayers pay the price. How about reporting from a country where everybody has healthcare, where young people can study without running up a deficit, where it's almost impossible to buy guns, where politicians listen to the demands of the people when it comes to the climate, gay rights, low numbers of incarceration, legal weed, and ..... We need more good news from countries where things work, where life is good and politics are sane!

Did I miss an episode. The Maori are wonderful people and he would have learned much from them. Maybe next time.

Lived there for a time and right nearly died on that bridge Stephen....sooo yeah congrats to you for uhhhmm 'not', haha. I traveled every section of OZ, except Taz & Darwin region, then...then I moved on to kiwi land. I truly found the optimal place on the planet & got to heli to a glacier twice. I have never experienced a better place in my travels abroad elsewhere, nor in my own 'highly desired country'. Definitely move there post retirement Stephen.

Both ways are cruel and the animals are so frightened before during and after. Factory farming is evil. And the evil of boiling lobsters alive is self explanatory. No thanks, stephen.
