    Wow - I was keeping an eye out for B & A in NZ as I knew they were here and were somewhere in the South Island.
    *sigh* they were in Christchurch briefly.
    And as everyone else noted ... stunning drone shots. :)

    I've heard NZ is tough on tourism, but the whole "You have to have a ticket out" thing is kind of passive-aggressively hilarious.


    I saw that Kojima met Jackson and that Burnie and Ashley went to Weta, but it never crossed my mind that the two things were connected. Damn.


    Those were some great shots. Burnie should be a film director. ...wait...

    A bit late now I guess, but the best way to get to Milford Sound is totally by plane.  If you ever go again, I recommend these guys at learntofly.co.nz.  Here's the video I made of that day

      I know, right? Something about the music and the shots together just felt extremely powerful and moving. I was almost in tears by the end of it. I've never wanted to move to New Zealand more in my life.

    For some reason I looked at the shot at 8.44 and was like "that's fake" hahaha! Maybe it's just so visually stunning my brain can't handle it being real.

      Im from NZ. You want to hire a car and go for a drive. The citys arent amazing, but the scenery, 30-45 min out of them are.

      Focus more on the South Island, Queenstown, Wanaka , West Coast etc. North island is still really pretty but not so much of the take your breath away sort of beauty.

      Queenstown, Arrowtown, Lake Tekapo, Lyttelton,and the Cardrona Hotel are all really nice. You get an amazing view of Mount Cook if you drive down through the inland of the south island.

    You had some of the worst luck in the travel department, but if it were me, it would all be worth it to get those shots of such a beautiful country.

    New Zealand has been in my top 3 places to visit for most of my life. Beautiful scenery and I love to visit one day. Not sure I'd be able to handle driving on the other side of the road; everything would be backwards! :)

    I think one of my favorite things about these vlogs is the idea of Burnie all giddy behind a laptop as he gets to edit those amazing scenery shots and cool bits with the lens tilt effect.

    Burnie, I have to say, out of all the shows and channels RT has, there hasn't been one that makes me feel as part of the RT family as your Vlog.  Even with how recent it's regularity is; before I always felt that AH and FH were the good friends you hop online to play games with, but this Vlog makes me feel like I've been invited to dinner after working at RT so you can show me pictures of your trip.  The way you shoot it, the music added, the way you talk to us; it just makes me feel like family so thank you, Burnie.  Thank you for treating us like family.

    Beautiful scenery on the drone montage, what a lovely looking country. Also, I love that you just have a casual day out with Hideo Kojima and Peter Jackson! #CelebLife
