OK, a few words then. I have loved thumbing through the pages of the world's greatest travel magazines for decades, and have noticed how remarkably consistently New Zealand tops the lists of reader's favourite destinations. Several of my closest friends have been, and all agree. But it is not until you see it for yourself that you can fully appreciate their views. And they are right. This country is gorgeous, from top to bottom. Conjure up your top ten perfect views, and they are all here. Mountains, hills, trees, fauna, beaches, lakes, rivers, glaciers, wild flower meadows, ancient forests and so on.
Add to this a great sense of space, harmony and wellbeing, mix in some good food and drink, and its hard not to think it is perfect.
