    Wellington int air port has a fuel depot at one end and the ocean (cook strait) at the other to make matters worse it's generally very windy and it's not uncommon for pilot to have to circle round.

    Wow, the montage of drone footage looked truly phenomenal. You outdid yourself there, Mr. Burns.


    On a side note, I just realised that you are Mr. Burns. Would Gus be Smithers in this case?

    The piano during the drone shots was a great touch. Would love to see a section of a vlog dedicated to how you select the music for each one.

    I don't know if you put up a smile for the camera or not. But there's something to admire when people can have shit after shit thrown at them on trips like these and still keep a smile on their faces. Very inspiring! Also damn you got to do some pretty sweet stuff while there! 


    Edit: Paused the video before the landscapeshots to write the comment. But now i have to add that the way you brought SO much depth to those landscapes brought several tears to BOTH my eyes! Burnie, you rock.

    Burnie's vlogs used to give me really bad anxiety because I was in a very stressful part of life and they made me wish I was anywhere then where I was but now, They bring me peace and they are now a goal of mine to  see the world. I may still be in dept but these vlogs make me realize how small my problems are and at the end of the day. if I really need to, then I can just book a plan and get away from everything.

    Unfortunately milford sound can get pretty misty, though i wouldn't let that dissuade you from going to fiordland and the west coast again if you do, the scenery almost looks jurassic with all the big ferns, and the glaciers are stunning. Firodand also has some great tramping tracks, weathers just real 50/50.

    What is it that Seth says when they introduce him?  Some kind of Kiwi wassup?


    Also, its just staggering that something like this nowadays can be made by a single person, rather than a film crew and some helicopters.

    It is so awesome to see such a multitude of positive comments about this gorgeous country us Kiwi's live in. Makes me very proud and to see those stunning drone shots from you Burnie, hits it home even more that so many of us take it for granted. Although, I am proud to say that my photo is actually in Queenstown at the top of the gondola :) Love my country xx
